The article presents information about the book "Genetic Diseases of the Skin," by V.M. Der Kaloustian and A.K. Kurban. This book brings together, in one volume, information on inherited disorders of the skin. The book is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather a good reference source. Although the book is probably suited more to the needs of the dermatologist and medical geneticist, it certainly would be a valuable addition to the library of pediatricians, internists and family practitioners.
