Description: Dermatology is a field for which traditional Chinese medicine is rightly respected. Proficiency in this field, however, requires specialized knowledge that is neither taught at most schools in the West, nor readily accessible to English- speaking practitioners. Manual of Dermatology in Chinese Medicine provides the practitioner with the information needed to properly treat skin diseases. Introductory chapters discuss the history of dermatology in traditional Chinese medicine, as well as aspects of diagnostics, differentiation and treatment that are peculiar to this field. The remaining 17 chapters provide detailed discussion of the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of specific skin conditions, including those most commonly seen in the clinic. Skin diseases are organized by biomedical categories, which will enable practitioners to easily reference available color atlases of dermatology to aid in diagnosis. The focus of this book is on treatment, especially herbal, but also acupuncture. Among its features is a comparision of the advantages and disadvantages of TCM and biomedical treatments for each of the conditions described.

Review: Good book for TCM practitioner
Good book to have as an additional source of information for dermatology cases, which has both: Herbal and acupunture/moxibustion treatment suggestions. It was my first book in dermatology in Chinese Medicine and served it’s prupose, altough I still go back from time to time to compare with another, more expensive and way more thorough “Dermatology in TCM” by Xu Yihou. I put 4 stars because it is lacking more detailed explanation, compare to the other one.
