Welcome to DermPearls!

By Perry Robins, MD


Over the course of many years of teaching residents, fellows, dermatologists, and other specialists, I am frequently asked, “Isn’t there an easier or better way to perform this procedure?”  Very often, the answer is “yes!”

It occurred to me that a collection of these practical tips and techniques would be useful to all.

In years’ past I published two extremely popular books on clinical pearls in dermatology, and to this day people inquire as to when I will publish more.  In response to this continued demand, I introduce to you DermPearls, a quarterly supplement to the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (JDD).

DermPearls presents the very best clinical knowledge in dermatology, authored by my esteemed colleagues worldwide.  I hope that you find our educational contributions through this exciting, new publication as beneficial as we do!
