Dermatological training is often inadequately executed in MBBS undergraduate and post-MBBS internship days which leads to the qualifying remarks either “too difficult” or “very simple” regarding the subject “Dermatology” by some qualified doctors in their practice. Whatever may be the attitude of the physician toward the subject, each and every doctor, whether practicing or nonpracticing, has to face and even treat dermatological cases in certain situation. Hence, doctors should have some basic concept about the subject of dermatology so that they do not take the cases casually. They may not manage the case but they should know when to refer the patient to prevent fatality. This book represents a small attempt to bridge the gap or a humble dialogue to communicate. This endeavor, however, has been based totally on visual language, which remains the basic conversation in clinical dermatology.

  • The primary aim of this book is to judge the clinical acumen. The book, however, does not ignore the importance of investigations by laboratory and other methods, which may be necessary in many clinical situations to conrm diagnosis, assess degree of severity, and nd associated features.
  • The target readers of this book are MBBS undergraduate students or practicing physicians who have not done any specialization in dermatology. Hence, common skin diseases have mostly been described, but some uncommon and major dermatological cases signifying serious prognosis or systemic involvement demanding immediate referral have been included as well.
  • Treatment guidelines represent only a sketchy plan to treat the individual case described which may require elaboration in certain cases and may not be applicable to all similar cases.
  • Only standard conventional treatment mentioned in the authentic textbooks or journals has been mentioned omitting therapies which are not much evidence-based.
  • Standard dose of the drugs has been mentioned which will, of course, depend on body weight, other concurrent medications, liver and renal status, known drug allergy, etc.
  • Pre-therapy and post-therapy monitoring of drugs by laboratory tests should be done whenever required.
  • This book does not insist that all the cases should be managed by nondermatologists. The book has attempted to provide a basic visual knowledge for diagnosis of certain skin disorders along with basic management strategy for the primary-care physicians. Referral to a dermatologist seems to be desirable whenever the situation arises.
