VisualDx: Essential Dermatology in Pigmented Skin combines a desk reference and a powerful online decision support system to give point-of-care assistance in diagnosing and managing skin diseases in darkly pigmented skin.

The book is written and edited by clinicians with extensive experience caring for patients with pigmented skin, including Hispanics, African-Americans, and diverse patients from many countries. It features over 700 full-color illustrations depicting the distinctive presentations of skin diseases in adults and children with darkly pigmented skin. These illustrations are valuable aids to both diagnosis and patient teaching because they show patients how the disease appears in skin types resembling their own pigmentation.

The text is organized by skin lesion morphology to assist the differential diagnostic process. It covers 195 skin disorders, with illustrations and succinct text on visual signs and symptoms, diagnostic pearls, best laboratory tests, differential diagnosis, and treatment. An additional chapter covers dermatologic therapy.
