It describes specific distinguishing features of diseases to enable the reader to make a diagnosis, and juxtaposes photos of similar or "look-alike" conditions for ready comparison where appropriate. Formatted approach to each disease (basics, description and distribution of lesions, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, differential diagnosis and management).
