Diagnostic Criteria in Dermatology
provides dermatologists, residents, medical students and other physicians with the most up-to-date and evidence-based diagnostic criteria for dermatologic diseases and syndromes. For a number of conditions in dermatology, evidence-based diagnostic criteria have been developed to improve the diagnostic acuity. An accurate diagnosis is essential for proper patient management.
The lists of criteria provided in this invaluable resource should not only aid in making an appropriate diagnosis, but on occasion, may also serve as a reminder of non-cutaneous involvement and the need for assessment of other organ systems. This latest update is based on the 2nd
