From the Foreword by Prof Kabir Sardana This book is a sincere attempt to picturize and present concisely acne which is arguably the most common skin disorder. The book covers in brief almost all the aspects that encompass the various aspects of the disease with a focus on treatments, both medical and cosmetic. Truly Acne encompasses almost all the aspects of clinical practice, though most focus on the cosmetic aspects which might not be needed if it is managed correctly. The classification, tables and photographs are appropriate and the general practitioners shall find it highly advantageous in their daily medical practice. The postgraduate students will find this compact book a handy addendum in their clinical practice.
