About this title:

Synopsis:

Pantheon of Dermatology provides an exciting introduction to the history of dermatology through the life stories of its most important protagonists.

From the reviews:

“The Pantheon is more than a history and more than a collection of biographies ― it is a monument on the history of dermatology.” (Jeff Bernhard, JAAD, December 2013)

“This tome is magnificent to view, and it will provide much education and reflection for even the most erudite readers.” (Jane M. Grant-Kels, Clin. Dermatol., November-December, 2013)

 “This truly magisterial ... voyage in words and pictures through dermatology ... is a terrific and exciting adventure.” (Robert Rudolph, UC Davis DermChat, May 2013)

From the Back Cover:

Auspitz sign, Kaposi sarcoma or Herxheimer reaction:  Who were the individuals who gave their names to these terms? What was the impact on medicine during their lifetime? What is the significance of their work today?

The authors introduce all who are interested in medical history and especially in the development of dermatology as a specialty to 209 outstanding personages covering a span of six centuries. Text and illustrations are combined to provide both a biographical sketch and an assessment of the individual’s impact on dermatology. There are over 2107 illustrations both from private collections and international libraries, including rare documents, portraits and other impressive mementoes of past medical epochs.

Pantheon of Dermatology provides an exciting introduction to the history of dermatology through the life stories of its most important protagonists. As Thomas Carlyle said:

History is the essence of innumerable biographies.
