Pathology of Challenging Melanocytic Neoplasms offers a dynamic text where readers will encounter a broad spectrum of challenging melanocytic lesions, both benign and malignant, and acquire a solid, working knowledge that they can immediately apply to daily diagnosis. The volume emphasizes the practical application of basic morphologic principles, immunohistochemistry, and ancillary methods in order to secure a confident diagnosis. Rather than being yet another encyclopedic work of reference, this volume takes a fresh approach as it resembles a series of stimulating seminars employing exemplary case material to highlight, illustrate, and succinctly discuss the key points. To this end, the reader is presented first with a section of introductory chapters and is then guided through a series of cases that pose a significant diagnostic challenge. By comprehensively comparing and contrasting two or more related entities, each such chapter illuminates an intellectual pathway through which an important diagnostic puzzle can be solved. To broaden the differential diagnosis even further, additional illustrative cases are added to each discussion. Tables also summarize key points. Written by experts in the field, Pathology of Challenging Melanocytic Neoplasms is of great value to surgical pathologists in practice and dermatologists as well as residents and fellows training in these specialties.
