Neonatal and Infant Dermatology is a unique comprehensive and heavily illustrated reference on the dermatologic diseases of newborns and infants. It includes discussions of common and uncommon conditions seen in infants at birth and in the first few months of life. With over 600 superb photographs of normal and abnormal skin conditions including images of rare conditions, this easily accessible resource is essential for pediatricians, neonatologists, and dermatologists as well as other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of dermatologic diseases in infants and newborns.

Book Reviews

2015 BMA Medical Book Awards: Highly Commended in Paediatrics

"In the third edition of this textbook (previously edited by Solomon and Esterly) the editors, Eichenfield, Frieden, Mathes and Zaenglein, have expanded its scope to include skin disorders arising in the neonatal period and infancy. The wonderful aspects of the prior editions have been preserved or improved upon. The text is clearly written and enhanced by the many color photographs of dermatologic disorders. Whenever possible there is a renewed effort to include evidence-based recommendations...Neonatal and Infant Dermatology is far more than an atlas. It is a state-of-the-art presentation of the diagnosis and management of skin disorders, and a road map for future interventions to enhance the well-being of the newborn infant."
