Book Preface

Cutaneous neoplasms include a wide array of benign and malignant proliferations showing diverse etiology and differentiation. Many unusual and rare tumors unique to the skin have been described, and many proliferations more commonly seen in other organ systems, especially soft tissue and lymphatic tumors, can also involve the skin either primarily or secondarily. Many of these entities can be difficult to precisely classify, as they may show overlapping features with other tumors in the differential and can prove challenging for general pathologists, dermatologists, and even dermatopathologists in some cases. This second edition of Diagnostic Pathology: Neoplastic Dermatopathology is designed as a concise, practical, and richly illustrated reference covering the broad array of cutaneous neoplasms and their differential diagnoses to allow for accurate interpretation and diagnosis.

Although there are many dermatopathology textbooks currently available, they are mostly traditional textbooks written in a paragraph-based format, with relatively few clinical and histologic photographs. In contrast, this book is lavishly illustrated and written in a detailed yet concise bulleted format, which facilitates the reader’s ability to quickly find relevant information. Each chapter includes critical information such as definitions, etiology/pathogenesis, epidemiology, clinical presentation, prognosis and treatment, histologic findings, ancillary techniques including immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology, differential diagnosis, and pathologic interpretation pearls. In addition, current CAP-approved staging protocols for tumors, including melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma, are also included for reference. Moreover, the carefully annotated histological images focus on the histopathological features, making them readily recognizable.

As in other subspecialities of pathology, there is a rapidly growing body of knowledge in dermatopathology, including new diagnostic immunohistochemical, molecular, and genetic techniques, making it difficult for any textbook to remain fully up to date. To that end, this book includes Expert Consult, an ebook that provides users access to relevant topics, fully searchable text, and a complete listing of antibodies.

We hope that Diagnostic Pathology: Neoplastic Dermatopathology, Second Edition will be a useful and valuable reference for in-training and practicing pathologists, dermatologists, and dermatopathologists.
