Overview

This brilliantly presented atlas is designed to complement Lever's Histopathology of the Skin, Eighth Edition. Abundantly illustrated in vivid full color, the atlas allows practitioners to recognize a diagnosis that can lead to a more detailed exploration of the topic. Based on morphology rather than pathogenesis, each disease is typically illustrated with 5 color photomicrographs and is depicted within the framework of an algorithmic classification based on location, pattern, and cell type. Culled from an enormous volume of cases, this important collection of images represents material from the last several decades up to newly collected slides, including many from cases of a more obscure nature and normally unavailable. Most images have been photographed on a Zeiss Axiophot Photomicroscope — allowing images that represent the state-of-the-art in optics. Clinical photographs are liberally included, offering informative and enlightening material for non-dermatologist pathologists.A CD-ROM containing Lever's Histopathology of the Skin, Eighth Edition and Synopsis and Atlas of Lever's Histopathology of the Skin is available. See Media Products Section for details. Either book can be purchased together with the CD-ROM at a special low price.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Derived and shortened from the original text published as the eighth edition of in 1997, this color- illustrated atlas presents residents in the early period of learning their discipline and readers studying for a nonspecialty board exam with a less ponderous reference and resource. The cutaneous diseases are listed in morphological categories based on their location in the skin, their architectural patterns, and their cytology. At least one important example of essentially each of the possible reaction patterns in the skin is presented, with brief synopses of clinical aspects and histopathology for those diseases considered prototypic of particular reaction patterns. Major entities in the differential diagnosis of the prototypes, usually with an associated text synopsis, are also provided. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
