Atlas of Dermatopathology. Tumors, Nevi, and Cysts. Edition No. 1

  • Book
  • 528 Pages
  • November 2018
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
  • ID: 5228072

Differential diagnosis is at its most accurate and efficient when clinical presentation and histopathological features are considered in correlation with one another. With this being so, the expert team behind this atlas has integrated both perspectives to create an innovative and essential resource for all those involved with the diagnosis of tumors, cysts, and nevi. Almost 1,400 full-color images clearly illustrate common patterns and variants of tumorous lesions of the skin and are helpfully contextualized by concise, straightforward descriptions of key features and diagnostic clues.

Whether they are aspiring or experienced practitioners, dermatologists and pathologists of all levels will find this an insightful and practically applicable addition to their bookshelf. Its far-reaching and easy-to-navigate coverage of relevant diseases of the skin provides trainees with an excellent grounding in the area, while practicing specialists may benefit from its use as a tool for the differential diagnoses of borderline cases.

Atlas of Dermatopathology: Tumors, Nevi, and Cysts offers a uniquely balanced, clear, and comprehensive guide to what can be a difficult process, and will be of tremendous assistance tostudents, dermatologists, dermatopathologists, and pathologists everywhere.
