From the reviews:

A practical atlas of frequent disorders of the hair, skin and nails encountered in a pediatric clinic. The Atlas describes the ailments by ethnic origin which is helpful. With many illustrations in color, and tables. Each of the 15 chapters has a relevant and updated reference list. Very useful for pediatric practitioners, students, interns and residents. (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 10 (2), January, 2013)

The purpose is to educate dermatologists in recognizing the range of clinical presentations various skin diseases have in different skin types. The audience is dermatologists and pediatricians. ... This book offers a relatively easy way to become familiar with the range of clinical presentations of a given skin condition in different skin color types. Medical students would benefit from studying the book during their pediatric dermatology rotation. (Patricia Wong, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2012)
