Professor Wilhelm Stolz, Department of Dermatology, University of Regensburg, Germany
The continous worldwide demand for this standard atlas has encouraged the authors and publishers to prepare an updated and enlarged third edition. Dermatoscopy is a relatively new technique and allows the doctor to make a rapid and highly accurate assessment of whether a pigmented lesion (mole) is likely to be malignant. Otherwise the patient would have to undergo a biopsy and laboratory analysis of the specimen. Thus a dermatoscope costing $100 can save lives or at least the high costs of unnecessary surgery. This book is a highly visual guide to the subject and will teach the necessary pattern recognition skills. It really is an atlas in that it contains over 500 high resolution colour photographs with detailed accompanying diagrams to explain how to recognise the key diagnostic features of each lesion. The main focus of the book is the daily challenge physicians face when evaluating patients with pigmented lesions. The major change to the third edition is the inclusion of a new section on advanced dermatoscopic diagnosis. This is a collection of actual cases which present particularly difficult features which greatly enhances the teaching value of this remarkable book.
