About this book

The “Abtropfung” theory that nevi develop through the migration of nevus cells from the epidermis to the dermis prevailed for almost a century until the “Hochsteigerung” theory postulated the reverse pattern of migration. Most recently, however, new insights gained from epidemiology, cross-sectional and longitudinal studies of nevi, dermoscopy and confocal microscopy, and cellular and molecular studies have brought into question both of these theories. This book provides a comprehensive guide to current knowledge about nevogenesis by presenting these latest advances and in addition discusses issues yet to be resolved. It will assist practicing physicians in effectively managing patients with a variety of nevi and will also be of great value to researchers in the field. Importantly, since nevi are associated with an increased risk of melanoma, understanding nevogenesis may help to unravel some of the mysteries of melanomagenesis.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to provide an update on how nevi are formed, their evolution, and factors that influence their development. I haven’t read any other book that addresses this subject in this depth. The authors do a superb job. … This should be required reading for all dermatology residents and dermatologists out of training.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
