To my parents, James and Glenda, who were first to inculcate an enduring fascination with books and their contents.

I would like to dedicate this work to my always loving and supportive family, Gabey, Jason, and Laura, without whom none of this would be worth doing.

This effort to highlight life-threatening skin diseases is made in the spirit of the dermatology training I received at MetroHealth Medical Center (formerly Cleveland Metropolitan General Hospital). This was a department of faculty members never seeking national recognition, but dedicated to outstanding training in medical dermatology. The department was headed by Dr. Jerome Pomeranz and given much of its energy by the tireless teaching of the residency director, Dr. Bryan Davis, who instilled his enthusiasm and passion for dermatology into scores of dermatologists who have received their training in the department. Another prominent member of this department to whom I owe thanks is the late Dr. Richard Belcher, whose personal photographs are included in this book. I would also like to thank my colleagues, Drs. Christine Jaworsky and Arlene Rosenberg, for reviewing the manuscript and providing valuable suggestions and my colleague and good friend, Dr. Michael Morgan, for giving me the opportunity to participate in this project.

I would like to dedicate this work to my parents, Roberta Fox Somach and Dr. Fredric Somach, for countless gifts, especially a love of teaching, music, and medicine.
