About this book

The interpretation of melanocytic tumors represents probably the most difficult task in the field of dermatopathology. The second edition of this text and atlas depicts a broad range of the most important and most challenging melanocytic lesions. Each individual case is illustrated with at least three high-quality color photographs and is commented on at length, highlighting the diagnostic clues. The goal of the authors is to assist the ordinary pathologist in making a precise workable diagnosis in their daily practice. They achieve this by providing simple criteria that will serve as a sound basis for an unequivocal diagnosis of either a benign or a malignant melanocytic neoplasm. The reader will find Histological Diagnosis of Nevi and Melanoma to be an invaluable guide to correct diagnosis even in difficult or rare cases.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“The book provides a logical, practical classification of melanocytic lesions, using the terminology most frequently used in dermatopathology laboratories. … This is a necessary book that provides useful information for both clinicians and pathologists. … This is a unique, comprehensive source of information for melanocytic lesion histopathology, and a likely must have for pathologists, dermatopathologists, and dermatologists.” (Susan M. Swetter, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2014)
