Summary

Can you Imagine this?
Do you remember the last time, if you ever had a minor burn, you watched as a small part of your skin peeled off? Picture what it would be like if your whole skin peeled off. How would you feel about yourself?

Stories about the skin are fascinating and compelling. The skin is the largest organ in the body and is vital for life support, but how much do we know about it and what can happen to it?

This book is an inspirational collection of tales from Dr Robert Norman's 18 Years as a dermatologist in Tampa, Florida. Based on real-life experience Dr Norman explains ailments of the skin, including melanoma, warts, albinism and toxic epidermal necrolsis, exploring the condition's history and etiology, and talks us through diagnosis with his patient stories. He also discusses topical issues in dermatology such as the importance of cancer prevention and the 'mad science' of cosmetic surgery.

The Women Who Lost Her Skin is invaluable reading for practicing and aspiring dermatologists and practitioners in primary care. It is also a jolly good read for anyone who has ever wondered about the mysterious stretchy covering of our bodies.
