The three interlocking components of the book – the algorithms, the descriptive text and the colour photographs – should be used together in reaching a diagnosis. The chapters are divided into the different body areas, and the algorithms deal with the differential diagnosis of similar lesions or rashes.  In the 5th edition published in April 2021 is fully updated and includes treatment and multipe images off skin conditions in white and pigmented skin types.
