The book deals with dermatologic diseases involving serious cutaneous malignancies. The sections are organized alphabetically and color-coded. Approximately 40 disease states are discussed with accompanying full-color clinical and microscopic photography. Each entity contains a single clinical photograph accompanied by three photomicrographs detailing the diagnostic features of each case. Subsections detailing disease prognosis are presented in a bullet-style. The pedagogical value of this book is its unique presentation of a variety of dermatologic entities capable of leading to serious medical consequences including death.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Three dermapathologists have gathered available information on skin diseases that could have fatal outcomes. . Each chapter begins with a box highlighting key information. This is followed by text and references. . the current authors are to be commended for creating a book that could be a useful source for the physician-in-training and for clinicians dealing with seriously ill or potentially seriously ill patients." (Lawrence Charles Parish, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 298 (10), 2007)"This book offers a review of a wide variety of dermatologic disorders that can lead to death of the patient. Each disease entity begins with a summary table for quick reference. . It is written for dermatologists, pathologists, and general practitioners, as well as dermatology and pathology residents and appears to be appropriate for that audience. . This book will prove valuable for residents just learning dermatology as well for busy clinicians needing a quick reminder of disease characteristics or associations." (Renata H. Mullen, Doody's Review Service, November, 2007)
