- As both experience and evidence-based findings indicate, specific dermatological conditions can prove harder to diagnose in patients with darker skin tones. Lack of knowledge or experience can compromise effective treatment and management, leading to lasting consequences for the patient. This atlas strives to supplement a lack of real world experience by providing more than 800 hundred high quality photographs and illustrations help guide physicians in treating the nuances of darker skinned patient populations. Dr. Moiin's own professional experience in treating patients of color on a daily basis and the sheer volume with which he is acquainted with these diseases on darker skin, enable him to provide broader insight and include a myriad of photos to better illustrate diagnoses and treatment plans. Photos range from common to rare diseases to aid in delineating nuances in diseases. Since dermatology is a highly visual field, the focus is more on the images, while the text is comprehensive but concise and often bulleted to allow for practical use. Written for residents and practicing dermatologists and all other medical professionals, Atlas of Black Skin is an essential tool for practitioners looking to broaden the scope of their care.
