This book provides a refreshing view of several clinical presentations that generally require admission, and discusses all the diagnostic aspects and management in great details. Dedicated chapters on immunosuppressives, corticosteroids, antibiotics and signs in dermatology make reading interesting. Discussion on recent aspects (e.g. in relation to autoimmune-blistering disorders) improves the already rich value of the book. The book contains practically everything one would want to know about common, and some not-so-common clinical situations. It elaborates the theoretical discussions (which one would have anyway read elsewhere to build up the conceptual framework) and provides enough practical details.
