The format adopted for each topic is outstanding. It consists of a representative colour photograph of the condition, a brief clinical description, management strategy, specific investigations and three separate levels of treatments — first, second and third choices. Pertinent references are included within the text and there is a succinct one- to two-line summary. The inclusion of some references to what may appear to be anecdotal reports of successful treatments may serve to stimulate larger controlled studies. Most of the authors have been chosen for their recognised expert knowledge in their fields and each section is a distillation of their individual experience and assessment of current treatments.
