This is an authorized English edition of a book titled A Dermatologic Correlation of Disease of the Periorbital Region, written by Gunter W. Korting, MD, professor and director of the Department of Dermatology of the University Hospital of Mainz, West Germany. (The first printing erroneously lists Dr. Korting as Director of the Department of Ophthalmology.) The original German edition was published in 1969. This edition was translated and adapted by three dermatologists, William Curth, MD, Helen O. Curth, MD, and Frederick F. Urbach, MD, and an ophthalmologist, Daniel M. Albert, MD, and was published in 1973.

The author's objectives are well stated in
