When the first edition of the Manual was published in 1974, I could not have imagined how this set of guidelines to the treatment of common skin disorders would evolve into its current form. With the 2014 edition, the Manual is reframed and it is now a bigger, enhanced, and more colorful print and electronic publication.
My original goal in creating the Manual was to present rational and practical therapeutic guidelines that would be useful for physicians and other health-care personnel. The original publication and the subsequent editions were greeted with enthusiasm and they became widely used in the United States and throughout the world through Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Indonesian, French, and Chinese versions.
The understanding of the causes, course, and therapy of cutaneous disorders has changed dramatically over the past four decades, as has the whole field of dermatology and the biology of skin disease. The procedural aspects of the specialty have broadened enormously as has the expertise and interest in dermatologic surgery. As knowledge about the pathophysiology of the skin and the basis of cutaneous disorders has become better understood, sophisticated and highly effective therapies for many disorders have become available, such as the biologic agents in the treatment of psoriasis. The specialty has become bigger, broader, and better, and so has this Manual.
