As essential a text for GPs as for dermatologists, this book is an atlas-like representation of the various forms of melanocytic skin lesions associated with cutaneous melanomas and other pigmented skin tumors. It is a comprehensive and up-to-date text on the practical issues surrounding the management of individuals with these lesions. It encompasses the classical methods of morphology such as the clinical and dermoscopic examination and dermatopathology. The book also deals with the most up-to-date diagnostic approaches such as laser scanning in-vivo microscopy and automated diagnosis. The visual 'atlas' includes superb clinical, dermoscopic and histopathologic images.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The purpose is to teach dermatologists how to increase diagnostic accuracy of pigmented lesions, especially melanoma, by using the dermatoscope. . The audience is dermatologists and dermatology residents. . This is definitely a valuable reference at a reasonable price. I would recommend reading it from cover to cover." (Patricia Wong, Doody's Review Service, March, 2009)
