Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara M. Egbert, MD (VA Palo Alto Health Care System)
Description: This synopsis of the most common entities in dermatopathology includes tables of definitions, clinical features, histopathology, and differential diagnoses, accompanied by multiple pictures.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a well illustrated, basic book for beginners. This is a worthy objective, as there are numerous books for residents and practicing dermatopathologists.
Audience: Beginners would include medical students and some residents in nondermatologic allied fields. The book is well organized for this audience.
Features: The book covers the most important diseases in dermatopathology including inflammatory, neoplastic, and congenital. The summary tables and photomicrographs are excellent. Including a differential diagnosis table is especially helpful. Given the concise nature of the book, some entities are not included. It might be useful for the authors to poll students who have used the book to see what sections they would like to see expanded.
Assessment: This high quality book would be extremely useful for medical students. Its concise nature and the level at which it is written is right on target. The authors hope to share their enthusiam for dermatopathology with their readers.
