This book shall assist the microscopist in a practical way, with the help of three mainstays, a. clinical information, b. the resources a standard histopathology laboratory may offer and c. the light microscope, to approach and solve the diagnostic problems he/she may face in the field of dermatopa¬thology. In fact, this is the way in which the senior author of this book has been successfully working over thirty years in his capacity as director of a private dermatopathology laboratory.

At a time when esoteric clinical entities and analytic techniques come and go, there is a need for a solid, updated, down to earth and "bench oriented" text in the field of dermopathology. This text provides a handbook which may be more helpful than an encyclopedic, "board oriented" textbook.
The senior author of this book has been successfully working for over thirty years in his capacity as director of a private dermatopathology laboratory. His experience and knowledge of the subject is reflected in this well-structured and clearly-written text.
