"Camisa's new edition of the Handbook of Psoriasis will be a
very useful reference for doctors treating psoriasis patients.
Camisa originally published a hardcover reference book on psoriasis
in the early 1990s. This is the second edition of a handbook that
is designed as a companion to that original book. However, it is a
complete book in its own right and a comprehensive summary of
current knowledge about psoriasis and treatment of this condition
in dermatological medicine. All chapters are well cross-referenced
with recent literature articles, useful for a dermatologist wishing
to follow up a particular direction. The book has an updated review
on all conventional therapies and a final chapter on the new
biological agents. Such is the pace of development with these new
therapies that this final chapter almost seems dated. The chapter,
however, still contains an excellent summary of the differences and
similarities between these remarkable and new potential treatments
for psoriasis. This book is recommended as an inexpensive addition
to a dermatologist's library, providing a well-researched update of
recent literature on psoriasis."
