Published Reviews "This book is both well organized and well illustrated, making it an excellent resource for trainees and pathologists. The primary difference compared to other dermatopathology texts is the bulleted format. Many other dermatopathology texts disseminate information via a traditional paragraph format. However, due to this version's easily searchable format, this book will allow for quick reference when reviewing slides at the microscope. Additionally, the multitude of high-resolution histologic images will help trainees solidify their pattern recognition skills. The gross images will be useful for interdisciplinary discussions between clinicians and pathologists. This book is recommended for any specialist or trainee interested in learning about neoplastic dermatopathology." ©Doody's Review Service, 2022, Ashley Brent, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
