Goodheart's Same-Site Differential Diagnosis is an easy-to-use reference for primary care physicians who are often on the front line of diagnosing and treating skin disorders.
Organized in a head-to-toe fashion, the book presents 400 full-color images of common skin disorders and places them side by side with their clinical look-alikes or other diagnostic possibilities that occur at the same anatomic site. Since many skin disorders tend to occur at specific sites, this organization by region is helpful in narrowing the number of diagnostic possibilities and reaching a specific diagnosis or differential diagnosis quickly and accurately.
The book presents differential diagnoses by region, along with key physical findings, laboratory tests, and historical information to help make a definitive diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is made, the management of each condition is described in step-by-step fashion on a facing page. Recommended first-line, second-line, and alternative therapies are briefly listed.
