by James W Patterson
Practical Skin Pathology is the only dermatopathology reference that uses a systematic pattern recognition approach to help you achieve more accurate diagnoses of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic skin diseases. This volume in the Pattern Recognition Series helps you to efficiently and confidently evaluate even the most challenging skin diseases and lesions.
Identify challenging types of skin cancer, including cutaneous lymphomas and melanocytic lesions, as well as non-neoplastic skin diseases such as panniculitis; drug eruptions, including reactions to newer chemotherapeutic agents; infectious diseases; and many more, with the only dermatopathology reference that uses a pattern recognition approach.
Progress logically from the histologic pattern, through the appropriate workup, around the pitfalls, to the best diagnosis.
Compare your clinical findings to more than 1,400 full-color, high-quality photos that capture the characteristic presentation of a full range of dermatopathology specimens.
