Written for both dermatologists and pathologists, this new, completely revised edition of this dermatopathologic classic contains a wealth of upto-date information and pertinent pathologic detail, something uncommon for a book that covers, almost in its entirety, the rapidly expanding field of cutaneous disease. It continues to be first in the field for its outstanding organization, practical clinicopathologic descriptions, histologic detail, extensive bibliography, and nearly exhaustive discussion of this histogenesis of the numerous entities covered.

This book is recommended for dermatologists and pathologists in training and for any serious student of cutaneous pathology.
