Skin lymphomas are relatively rare but potentially fatal
They can easily be misdiagnosed as benign skin diseases. Dermatologists and pathologists need to have a good understanding of the clinical presentations and the pathological correlates of this challenging disease to ensure the correct diagnosis and most appropriate treatment is provided.
Skin Lymphoma: The Illustrated Guide is a full-color illustrated text and atlas that combines pathology with clinical features and treatment. Jam-packed with pictures that illustrate key diagnostic points and supplemented by teaching cases to highlight effective decision making. It includes all newly identified entities and provides pointers on how to differentiate these. In addition, it also covers all inflammatory conditions that may simulate skin lymphomas (cutaneous pseudolymphomas).
Skin Lymphoma: The Illustrated Guide provides
- Clinical and pathological guidance on diagnosis of skin lymphomas
- Clear illustrations to aid visual recognition
- Nomenclature according to WHO/EORTC classifications
- Cases to enhance the scope for teaching and learning
This fully refreshed fourth edition continues to provide the clinical excellence that has helped a generation of dermatologists and dermatopathologists to effectively diagnose skin lymphoma.
