Additional Titles by this Author
  • “Dr. Norman has written a unique and important text focused sharply on a single subject; namely, cutaneous diseases of the elderly, covering the topic thoroughly, presenting material which is not to be elsewhere in the dermatologic literature.  It qualifies as a masterpiece, a complete depository of substances to the entire literature which should sit conspicuously on the shelves of those who label themselves as geriatricians.”
