Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The latest addition to the Requisites In Dermatology Series is a concise, user-friendly guide, accompanied by full-text on-line access. This comprehensive quick-reference tool will be welcomed by dermatology and pathology registrars, both as an introductory text and for examination review. It is also a useful, convenient desk-top resource for practicing dermatologists and general pathologists. This book is a laser-sharp resource for students and for seasoned practitioners wanting a pictorial refresher course. If, heaven forbid, I were sitting for a dermatopathology exam in the near future, I’d be taking this book everywhere." Melbourne Pathology, July 2009

"Requisites in Dermatology - Dermatopathology is a comprehensive, free-standing work that rivals the content and complexity of any other standard textbook of dermatopathology. Its compact dimensions and on-line interface are sure to make it a first choice for many clinicians both within the office and on-the-go. I highly recommend it to the reading audience." Dermatopathology: Practical and Conceptual (, 2009

"This is an easy to use and essentially good guide to anyone wishing to obtain basic information on the histological appearances of most of the common dermatological conditions. It is directed at the trainee dermatopathologist but does have appeal to anyone in the medical field with an interest in dermatopathology. It is excellent value for money and should be regarded as a valuable assist to most histopathological libraries." BMA Book Awards 2009- judges comments

"The authors are to be applauded for this succinct yet comprehensive, highly usable text…It will be well-received by a broad audience at all training levels and will be of particular interest to dermatology and pathology residents seeking to establish a solid foundation in dermatopathology." Dermatopathology: Practical and Conceptual (, 2009

"This is one of the best concise texts for medical students and residents. For a long time, only long, all-inclusive books were available, which could be discouraging for neophytes. This book would be perfect for visual learners... The excellent photomicrographs are the best features of the book." - Doody's 5 Stars! *****

"Dirk Elston et al successfully capture the essence of hundreds of entities and topics within dermatopathology in a well-designed, "cut-to-the-chase" style... delightful and refreshingly versatile text... a comprehensive, free-standing work that rivals the content and complexity of any other standard textbook of dermatopathology. Its compact dimensions and on-line interface are sure to make it a first choice for many clinicians both within the office and on-the-go. I highly recommend it to the reading audience." - Reviewed by: Steve Alder, M.D., Director of Dermatopathology, Clin-Path Associates, PLC, Tempe, Arizona
