Under the distinguished editorship of Dr. Jack Lesher, this atlas-textbook comprehensively covers the microbiology of the skin with an unprecedented series of superb photographs, mostly in color, printed opposite facing pages of instructive captions and clinical insights. The book covers bacteria, ectoparasites, arthropods, pinworms, fungi, and viruses. Fully referenced and indexed, this volume is an essential diagnostic and how-to manual for dermatologists, residents, and general practice and primary-care physicians.
From the preface:
"While primarily directed to dermatologists and primary care physicians in academic and private practices, this volume will serve as a valuable learning resource for residents in training, particularly in dermatology, primary care fields, and infectious disease programs. this atlas is not intended to sit on the bookshelf, but instead out on the office laboratory bench on a daily basis where it will be used frequently."
