Dermatopathology is a subspecialty of both dermatology and pathology that studies causes and effects of skin disorders at a microscopic level.
This colour atlas is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of dermatological disorders by correlating pathological results with clinical features. Written from the perspective of both pathologists and dermatologists, the book begins with an introduction to the normal pattern of skin.
Each of the following chapters examines a different skin disorder, first providing a detailed description of the disease and its clinical features, then criteria for diagnosis, differential diagnosis and potential pitfalls.
Written by an internationally recognised author team from Utah and Pennsylvania, this invaluable guide is highly illustrated with nearly 800 clinical and histological photographs with detailed descriptions.
