4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is an excellent textbook of dermatopathology in a highly competitive field."--Doody's Review Service
For virtually every kind of skin lesion, this skill-sharpening resource has everything you need to successfully perform differential diagnosis at the microscopic level. Dermatopathology features a systematic, algorithmic approach that cuts through the complexity of the discipline's traditional disease-oriented focus, providing a ready-to-use diagnostic tool that puts the entire world of dermatopathology into perspective.
Filled with hundreds of color photomicrographs, the book features a clear five-part organization and 37 detailed chapters-each reflecting the scientifically rigorous, up-to-date insights of authors who are acknowledged experts in the field. The book's vast scope encompasses all skin disease processes-inflammatory, non-inflammatory, infections, and proliferations (harmatomas, hyperplasias, and neoplasms, plus disorders of nails and oral mucosa).
NEW! Full chapters on laboratory methods, stains, and updated immunohistochemistry facilitate identification, interpretation, and subsequent accurate diagnosis
NEW! Revised chapters provide important new information on inflammatory conditions, infections, and melanocytic, vascular, lymphoid, and other neoplastic conditions

Numerous easy-access tables, bulleted lists, and charts in each chapter
