Written for trainees as well as experienced dermatopathologists, this 3rd edition of the Atlas And Synopsis Of Lever’s Histopathology Of The Skin provides a systematic approach to diagnosing skin diseases.

Classifying skin diseases by location, reaction patterns, and cell type if applicable, this new edition greatly improves the ability of the reader to recognize a wide variety of skin diseases and help in the development of differential diagnoses. Written to be a useful reference tool and teaching aid rather than a comprehensive textbook, this guide will aid dermatopathologists of all experience levels in the understanding of cutaneous reaction patterns and diagnosis.


• Expanded table of contents — key to the skin disease classification system

• Sections are color-coded for ease of reference throughout book

• New tables compare “lookalike” diseases

• Over 1600 color images

• Each disease illustrated with multiple color photomicrographs

• Online image bank

Based on Lever's Histopathology of the Skin, Ninth Edition, this full-color atlas presents an algorithmic pattern recognition approach to differential diagnosis of skin diseases. Whereas Lever's classifies diseases by pathogenesis, this atlas aids in differential diagnosis of unknown cases by classifying diseases morphologically, based on their location in the skin and the patterns and cell types seen through the microscope. Within each morphologic category, prototypic disorders are described and illustrated with full-color photomicrographs, and a list of differential diagnostic possibilities is presented. The atlas contains over 1,300 full-color illustrations. A bound-in image bank CD-ROM contains all the book's illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara M. Egbert, MD (VA Palo Alto Health Care System)
Description: This atlas of dermatopathology includes photomicrographs with arrows and labels, relevant accompanying text, helpful tables, and very useful differential diagnosis sections.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a small book that is affordable, but complete enough to be useful to both trainees and experienced practitioners, a worthy objective that the book meets.
Audience: This would be useful to medical students, residents in pathology and dermatology, and practitioners in these fields. It could also be used by those in other specialties such as internal medicine.
Features: The atlas covers major entities in dermatopathology. The outstanding photomicrographs are of high quality and pertinent, with useful arrows and labels. Tables are helpful in making diagnoses. Especially valuable are the sections on differential diagnosis. As with any synopsis, however, it is impossible to cover every subject.
Assessment: This is a very high quality book that provides a great deal of information despite its size. It covers similar material to Practical Dermatopathology, 2nd edition, Rapini (Elsevier, 2012). Given that this edition has 1,000 new microscopic images as well as additional discussion and more diseases, it is certainly justified.
From the Publisher

'Ill add the following quotes to the firebrand record.'

'the Atlas includes clinical pictures and more extensive clinical summaries than found in the text.'

'the most outstanding feature of the Atlas is the perfect photomicrographs'

'the combination of detailed legends and key features highlighted by block text and arrows make the pathological illustrations didactically superb'
