Dermatology for the USMLE 5th Edition PDF
Start reading this book early in your medical career. Being familiar with the key concepts and images provided will ease your USMLE preparation and clerkship experience. Associating a medical condition with its clinical appearance will improve memory retention and enhance recall. Bold or italic text and USMLE Pearls emphasize important and most tested information or distinctions between differential diagnoses. One way or another I came across almost every skin pathology discussed in this book during my USMLE preparation and clerkships. Dermatologic manifestations of disease are seen in almost every specialty and recognizing them will help you tackle difficult exam questions. For example, when you recognize Pyoderma gangrenosum or Erythema nodosum, you should be thinking of underlying inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as a possible diagnosis. Studying this book will help you answer the majority of dermatology questions in your board exams. It is my honor to provide this valuable tool for your development as a professional health provider.
