Of all the techniques used to treat non melanoma skin cancer, the highest cure rates belong to the Mohs surgical procedure. Critical to this technique is optimal preparation and interpretation of frozen sections. With more than 400 high resolution figures, the Atlas of Mohs and Frozen Section Cutaneous Pathology is the premier textbook on the topic, serving as a highly practical guide to microscopic analysis, diagnosis, and discrimination of common and problematic cutaneous neoplasms.Highlights of the Atlas include diagnosis of basic and routine dermatologic entities, diagnosis and distinction of rare and/or deadly neoplasms such as dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans and merkel cell carcinoma, a troubleshooting guide dealing with quality control of the frozen section technique, and discussion of new techniques including immunohistochemistry.Comprehensive and presented in full color, the Atlas of Mohs and Frozen Section Cutaneous Pathology is an indispensable reference for anyone involved with the Mohs procedure, including dermatologic surgeons, Mohs cutaneous surgeons, as well as pathologists and dermatopathologists who perform frozen section analysis of cutaneous specimens.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is an atlas of frozen section tissue typically seen by practicing Mohs surgeons. . Practicing Mohs surgeons and any physicians training in Mohs surgery are the intended audience. . this is a comprehensive collection of high quality photomicrographs. . This should be a required text for all procedural dermatology fellowship programs. . most practicing Mohs surgeons will want a copy for their libraries as well. It is an excellent reference . ."
