Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology

( 4 )

Overview

Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis-clinical, radiologic, and pathologic-and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

Hundreds of color images and analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies, and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate ...

Overview

Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis-clinical, radiologic, and pathologic-and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

Hundreds of color images and analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies, and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of the entities described are uncommon, Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees skin cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.

This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the skin. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of skin lesions that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.

Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology Features:

  • Over 400 high-quality images showcase the full range of nonneoplastic and neoplastic mimics in skin
  • Concise, specific text descriptions to make the book easy to use as a visual reference
  • Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Wei Cui, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a guide to the pseudoneoplastic mimics as they occur in the skin that could lead to inaccurate interpretations and missed diagnoses.
Purpose: Nonneoplastic processes and neoplasms can be alike at a macroscopic level, at a microscopic level, or both. Comparisons between neoplasms and their mimics at different levels and points that contribute to a differential diagnosis are emphasized in this book.
Audience: Dermatopathologists and general pathologists with a special interest in dermatopathology are the intended audience.
Features: The book covers the pseudoneoplastic mimics of epithelial tumors, melanocytic tumors, mesenchymal lesions, neurocutaneous rests, and hematopoietic neoplasms. Its best feature is the generous use of photos to illustrate the clinical findings of skin lesions along with the photos of microscopic findings. However, the quality of the printing could be better.
Assessment: This is a valuable book. The authors describe many cutaneous neoplasms and their mimics from a unique perspective. Unlike other books in this area, the authors focus on the unique morphologic features to differentiate these neoplasms from their mimics. Inclusion of many clinical pictures of different skin lesions in addition to histologic photos is a feature that differentiates this from other books in the field.
