With the publication of his Textbook of Dermatology, the [late] Arthur Rook established it as the most comprehensive work of reference available to the dermatologist. Subsequent editions have been expanded as the subject has developed and the book remains the ultimate source of clinical information for the trainee and practising dermatologist alike. Two new editors (Drs Burns and Breathnach) have been brought to the team from complementary backgrounds in clinical practice and research. Dr Burns is a former editor of the British Journal of Dermatology.
The sixth edition contains three new chapters on epidemiology, molecular biology and wound healing. In addition, the chapter on physical and surgical therapies has been divided into two separate chapters to reflect the development of techniques such as laser treatment and chemical peels.
