About the Authors
  • This step-by-step practical diagnostic guide takes a fresh look at inflammatory skin disorders by focusing on the practicalities of correlating the histopathologic and clinical features, and highlighting useful diagnostic tips and potential pitfalls. Covering a wide range of both common and rare but critically important inflammatory skin disorders, it outlines their clinical and microscopic features, including histopathologic variations. Highlighting the scope and limitations of a skin biopsy, the book actively encourages a closer liaison between the dermatologist and the pathologist, and demonstrates how correlating the clinicopathologic attributes allows for a more meaningful and accurate diagnosis. With over 600 clinical and microscopic images and featuring real-world scenarios and practical tips, Pearls and Pitfalls in Inflammatory Dermatopathology offers a vital new perspective towards the diagnostic approach to inflammatory skin disorders. The book is packaged with a password, giving the user online access to all the text and images.

    • Illustrated by over 600 images accumulated over many years of clinical practice, allowing the reader to visualise clinical and histopathologic presentations of skin disorders side-by-side
    • Highlights useful morphologic clues and alerts the reader to areas of diagnostic difficulties by creating an awareness of potential diagnostic pitfalls in order to prevent misdiagnosis
    • Features useful diagnostic tips at every step, making it an easy resource in day-to-day practice
    • Provides user-friendly, step-by-step guidance for making an accurate and speedy diagnosis of both classical and atypical presentations of inflammatory skin disorders
