About this book

As a result to the recent significant developments, both in the field of cutaneous pathology and clinical dermatology, many cutaneous neural tumors are now being diagnosed by specialists like dermatopathologists, and treated by dermatologists or dermatologic surgeons. Cutaneous Neural Neoplasms: A Practical Guide provides an essential aid in diagnosis by discussing the cardinal clinico-pathologic features of cutaneous tumors relevant to these specialists. It covers detailed pathologic features, and their differential diagnosis. Applicable special diagnostic techniques are extensively illustrated. Whenever relevant, key therapeutic recommendations are provided. The authors approach each entity by presenting clinical and/or gross photographs when relevant with discussion of the clinical features, followed by the tabulated list of key pathologic features with corresponding histopathologic illustrations. Therapeutic recommendations are summarized. Cutaneous Neural Neoplasms: A Practical Guide is an important new volume that fills a major gap in the currently available resources for practicing physicians, and provides them with an appropriate knowledge base to handle these challenging tumors in the most up-to-date fashion.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a practical guide to cutaneous neural neoplasms both benign and malignant with numerous photomicrographs and helpful diagrams and tables. … Although written primarily for practicing dermatopathologists, this book is so well written that it would be useful to residents in both pathology and dermatology. … The book is filled with excellent photomicrographs to document the lesions and diagrams and tables to help with understanding the concepts. … This is an outstanding book that fills a gap in the dermatopathology literature.” (Barbara M. Egbert, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2012)
