While the opportunities seem greatest for expeditious diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases, the reality is otherwise. Skin diseases take a heavy medical toll and remain a problem in diagnosis for the developing countries. Part of this relates to difficuties in diagnosis of diverse skin diseases in patients of varied racial backgrounds. This book promises to be a useful tool in the hands of the physician in developing countries. Beginning with the preface, Dr. Canizares uses a most practical approach to some obvious problems, first: differences in pigmentary tone and diagnosis and his use of Coon's classification of race, which seems eminently useful. Secondly he broaches the issue of costs of laboratory evaluation and drug therapy dealing appropriately with a difficult problem, emphasizing clinical skills. This text offers to provide them to the interested reader.

The initial section on fundamentals provides an extremely valuable review of anatomy, diagnostic approaches, histopathological examination and principles of therapy.
