Dermatology is one of the most challenging branches of medicine, as diagnosis mostly relies on the morphology of the lesions. In this regard, relevant differences based on the patient’s phototype exist, and recognizing this variability increases diagnostic accuracy. This richly illustrated atlas with over 900 original illustrations, gathers the pioneering experience of international experts, and provides a detailed insight into the clinical and dermoscopic presentation of inflammatory, infiltrative and infectious dermatoses as well as hair and nail disorders for both fair and dark skin, pointing out any relevant differences according to the skin tone. This handy volume, which also includes still unpublished details and less common dermatological conditions, is intended to support the clinical practice of physicians primarily dealing with either light or dark skin and will be of help in a multiethnic context, growingly common in our globalized world. Written for dermatologists, dermato-pathologists, residents and anyone performing dermoscopy, this atlas will be a valued companion for the effective diagnosis of various skin, hair and nail disorders across the wide skin color spectrum.)
