New, expanded, color illustrated Millennium 2000 edition of Dr. Jerome Litt's immensely popular, universally acclaimed reference book on drug eruptions. Published in large-format softcover binding with a full-color atlas section showing the most commonly encountered reactions, this new edition catalogs more than 700 generic and over 4, 200 trade-name drugs (cross-referenced for quick look-up) with their adverse cutaneous reactions: skin, hair, nails, mucous membranes, and others. New in the 2000 edition are sections on herbals, botanicals, trace elements and supplements, more reaction patterns and the drugs responsible for them, including indications, category, half-life and major interactions and even more color illustrations. The updated literature citations now include some 16, 000 references, many pre-Medline and some going back as far as 1922. This Millennium 2000 edition contains 332 references to 64 different reaction patterns caused by carbamazepine, 177 references to lupus erythematosus caused by procainamide, and thousands more. Indexed by both generic and proprietary drug names as well as by reaction patterns. Published annually.
