Description

The textbook Dermoscopy in Darker Skin is an illustrated guide to the practical use of this diagnostic tool in the types of skin prevalent predominantly in the Indian subcontinent. Its utility lies in its simplicity of format in which chapters are structured based on the images of the various conditions and their descriptions rather than text, to make this book a handy tool in the clinic of the busy dermatologists, in this part of the world where the large number of patients makes it impossible for a detailed reading during clinic/hospital hours. The book emphasizes on areas of dermoscopic practice, which are more relevant to the Indian skin such as dermoscopy in pigmentary disorders, melasma and nonmelasma facial pigmentation of the face, granulomatous and other infectious disorders and vitiligo. The arrangement of the various chapters ensures that the clinician is quickly able to find the images that are relevant to the patient in front of him, increasing the immediate value of the book in his clinic. It is indeed heartening to note that this book is a watershed in the literature on this speciality in India and surrounding countries and would be of value wherever in the world specialists are called upon to manage conditions in similar skin types. It is after long that a comprehensive set of images with descriptions and supporting text have been prepared in this readily readable and understandable form for its ready application in day-to-day practice.
