Dermatology Made Easy is based on the hugely popular DermNet New Zealand website and is designed to help GPs, medical students and dermatologists diagnose skin conditions with confidence. The book starts by providing a series of comprehensive tables, complete with over 500 thumbnail photos, to aid diagnosis according to symptoms, morphology, or body site. Once you have narrowed down the diagnosis, cross-references then guide you to more detailed descriptions, and another 700 photographs, covering: · common infections · inflammatory rashes · non-inflammatory conditions · skin lesions Every section provides consistent information on the disorder: · who gets it and what causes it? · what are the clinical features and does it cause any complications? · how do you diagnose it? · how do you treat it and how long does it take to resolve? The book concludes with a comprehensive section on further investigations and treatment options. Dermatology Made Easy combines the essential focus of the Made Easy book series with the authority and knowledge base of DermNet New Zealand’s unparalleled resources.

Practical Veterinary Dermatopathology is a practical guide for students, veterinarians, and technicians explaining the when, why, where and how of biopsy collection and submission of samples. The practical nature of this title is demonstrated by its heavy use of quick reference tables, high quality illustrations, and case review studies. This liberally illustrated guide, over 140 illustrations of which 78 are color photographs of clinical and histopathological lesions, is designed to correlate images with text making the material easy to understand and accessible. Techniques for collecting and handling biopsy samples are clearly depicted in numerous illustrations along with recommendations for the biopsy technique that is most suitable for the specific clinical lesion and/or its anatomic location. A special section is dedicated to assisting the user in formulating differential diagnoses of clinical lesions in various anatomic sites. The case review studies assist understanding on how to manage the biopsy sampling process, formulate clinical differential diagnoses, and interpret pathology reports. This practical guide does a wonderful job of making the subject accessible for practicing veterinarians. Published by Teton New Media in the USA and distributed by Manson Publishing outside of North America.

Health Sciences Literature Review Made Easy helps students and practitioners better understand scientific literature by instilling the essential skills (via the matrix method) needed to critically evaluate article findings. The fundamental principles of searching, organizing, reviewing, and synthesizing are covered at the most basic level. Visual examples and a single case study are woven throughout the text. This easy-to-read and practical reference is an invaluable aid to students, researchers, and practitioners. The Third Edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect the switch out of "paper" mode and into electronic mode. Clinical practice examples and references to PubMed and PubMed Central have been added throughout along with information on reference management softwares such as endnote and refworks.
The best-selling text has been completely revised and revitalised in this fifth edition, with the authors once again encouraging general practitioners, medical students, general physicians and early stage dermatology specialist trainees and interns to relish the unique challenge of diagnosing and treating skin conditions.
