This, the best American text on dermatology, has now reached its fifth edition. The statement perhaps should be slightly modified, to say the best text in print. Sutton's is a far more scholarly effort but, although still quite useful as a reference, becomes progressively more out of date. This is pointed up by a consideration of some of the entities, drugs, and concepts which have appeared in the recent past. Among these may be mentioned Selye's stimulating discovery of calciphylaxis, such previously unknown entities as cytomegalic inclusion disease, H disease, carcinoid and the like, and new drugs or improved forms of older drugs such as amphotericin B, chlorpropamide and micronized griseofulvin. It not only covers adequately the skin disorders seen in temperate climes but in addition those of special interest to health workers in the tropics, , kwashiorkor, yaws, pinta, leprosy (especially well done), leishmaniasis, and so on.
