This atlas is a CD-ROM in a series on systemic pathology. The program is easy to install and intuitive to use. The atlas is divided into 6 sections: disease atlas, features atlas, references, features definition, disease definition, and lectures.

The disease atlas section covers all of the common and many of the less common melanocytic lesions. Clinical and histological images are presented for each disease. A useful feature is the thumbnail sketch, which allows the user to view 8 small images with their accompanying legends all on 1 screen. The low-power histological images are of varying quality. The higher-power views are generally excellent and histological features are easy to appreciate. Unfortunately, it is not possible to compare lesions by showing them together on the screen.

In the disease definition section there is a description of each of the disease entities. Descriptions of the common entities are lucid and concise.
