This is a fascinating and comprehensive atlas on the various forms of melanocytic skin lesions associated with cutaneous melanomas and other pigmented skin tumors.
An up-to-date text on the practical issues surrounding the management of individuals with these lesions, the book encompasses the classical methods of morphology such as the clinical and dermoscopic examination and dermatopathology.
It also deals with the most up-to-date diagnostic approaches such as laser scanning in-vivo microscopy and automated diagnosis.
The visual ‘atlas’ includes superb clinical, dermoscopic and histopathologic images of melanocytic nevi, various types of melanomas and relevant other pigmented skin tumors including basal-cell carcinomas.
Each of these well illustrated entities is presented in the same structure characterized by definition, clinical and dermoscopic features, relevant clinical differential diagnosis as well as practical aspects of management.
