Download Rook’s Textbook of Dermatology, which is of course one of the best Dermatology books. Rook’s Textbook of dermatology covers all aspects of skin disease from basic science through pathology and epidemiology to clinical practice. It has always been particularly highly regarded for its unparalelled coverage of diagnosis. Two new Editors, Dr Cox and Professor Griffiths, have been brought in to the team from complimentary backgrounds in clinical practice and research.
The late Arthur Rook established the Textbook of Dermatology as the most comprehensive work of reference available to the dermatologist and it enjoys instant name recognition. Each subsequent edition has been expanded as the subject has developed and the book remains the ultimate source of clinical information for the trainee and practising dermatologist alike.
The seventh edition contains three completely new chapters on immunodeficiency, AIDS and skin ageing. Many chapters have been completely rewritten from scratch, for example the chapter on molecular biology was thought to be too advanced for the general reader and will be made more introductory. Whilst the book’s traditional emphasis on diagnosis has been preserved, there has been an increased coverage of treatment in each of the disease chapters in response to minor criticisms that previous editions have been comparatively weak in this area.
