In their September 1993 entries the Shelleys recounted the Indiana Dermatology Society meeting. Dr. W.B. Shelley spoke on the fine art of dermatologic therapy, which was summarized as: "Do onto others as you would have doctors do onto you." An anecdote from these entries: "We feel that any 'double-blind' therapy steals your placebo power. We need (and use) every ounce of placebo we can get. Practicing without the placebo effect is like practicing without an effective drug." They also described grand rounds and a lesson from their infectious disease colleague, Haig Donabedian, MD, on Legionella infection. The Shelleys described cases of psoriasis of both palms, scaling ulcerative alopecia, chronic vaginal candidiasis, pruritus vulvae, actinic keratoses, and more.
