This short book on dermatologic histopathology is written primarily for the dermatologist, and yet the general pathologist will also find it most useful. The author gives more space to the cutaneous diseases in which the histologic examination is of diagnostic value than to those in which the histologic picture is not particularly characteristic. The discussion of each disease is preceded by a short description of the clinical features. The discussion of the histologic picture is short and precise and therefore very excellent and is aided by good photomicrographs. Wherever necessary the differential diagnosis is given.

Epidermal and mesodermal tumors are also considered. This book falls short only by omitting the rarer aberrations from and variations of the typical histologic picture.

An extensive bibliography, which will be most helpful to those who are interested in obtaining additional information is given.

This book is highly recommended to students of dermatology,
