Science is advancing at a rapid speed. With research work form different parts of the world, new outputs are pouring in sometimes changing the old concept totally. To keep pace with the recent developments all around even the most dedicated scholars are not getting enough time to get them updated. The "Continuing Medical Education in Dermatology" is meant for those interested group of doctors and scholars.

Professor Ganguly has assembled a group of authors, spanning over India, UK, and USA to get us informed about some glimpses of newer development and achievements in the field of Dermatology in his newly publish book.

The Editor with a calculated plan have included different and diverse subjects of current interest only in 25 articles without taxing our time and brain. It included subjects of clinical interest like atopic eczema, leg ulcers, vasculitis, melasma and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, adverse cutaneous drug eruptions, acute generalized exanthematous pustular eruption. Salivary diagnostic will definitely create new interest among dermatologists. Its utility in diagnosing systemic diseases may help other specialties too. Phototherapy, management of hemangioma, pediatric psoriasis and Steven-Johnson's syndrome has satisfied the desire of serving the ailing community in most modern way. Stem cell, human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, and few recent developments in dermatology show what dermatology is going to be in future. The topic of current interest like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease as well as age old Hansen's disease, which remains a great health burden in India, has rightly been taken care of. The Editor must be congratulated for including "Community Dermatology" and "Recent trends in managing a modern hospital" in this book, which has given it a new flavor and dimension. It indicates what community need from us.

The book is intended for all who likes reading, who believes evolving science, and who wants to move ahead with change in time. One can guess the Editors desire in framing and shaping of this book with resourceful topics to cater our needs. Except few spelling mistakes, the book has excelled in all other aspects like binding, printing, cover design, etc., and can be an asset for all academicians, faculties, postgraduate training schemes (PGTs) as well as practitioners.
