Consultant Dermatologist, Diplomate of the Royal College of Pathologists, UK

This is the new edition of a successful text book popular on both dermatology and pathology courses.  This third edition has retained the reader friendly format of previous versions – schematic diagrams, tables, decision trees, algorithms for diagnostic dilemmas, summary of findings and clues for easy diagnosis continue to feature predominately in the book.  There are now 70 colour plates to refer to, with better definition.

It contains the basic structure and format as before; - each entity is succinctly described with important clinical features and adjunct studies.  Even biopsy technique, pitfalls and limitations on histologic interpretation are all addressed.
