About the Authors
  • An essential examination resource for anyone sitting their primary or maintenance of certification examinations in dermatology, pathology or dermatopathology, Self-Assessment in Dermatopathology uses histopathology as a catalyst for constructive and critical thinking and to trigger relevant clinical, genetic and syndromic associations. Concise explanations at the end of each chapter give short answers to each question and expand on each answer choice. Each chapter consists of an increasingly difficult selection of questions, allowing the reader to develop and self-test their knowledge. Tables relevant to the section covered have also been incorporated in the answer section. Using this practical approach, the reader will become familiar with the pathologic basis of clinically relevant dermatoses and cutaneous tumors. The question and answer format make this book the first resource of its kind. Thinking about information in a new way is the foundation of this book, making it an invaluable addition for any trainee.

    • Unique in the field, this book is an essential resource for trainees across continents
    • Uses histopathology as a tool to trigger key clinical, syndromic and genetic associations
    • Provides a self-teaching review that offers an in-depth knowledge of all entities involving the skin

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Numerous tables and explanatory comments pertinent to the answers of the multiple choice questions provide a treasure of information which educates, inspires and encourages the reader not only to learn but also to think critically about specific conditions and beyond. Some of these 'gems' flagged up in sections with headings like 'short-guide', 'cheat-sheet', 'at a glance' and 'quick-recap' will no doubt catch the reader's attention and imagination.' Asok Biswas, University of Edinburgh

    'It is not necessary to being at the beginning, although it enhances the experience by moving through it in sequence. Yet, conversely, part of the fun of this work consists in discovering, serendipitously, 'gems' within the tables and the explanations of the correct answers to the questions. As challenging as the discipline of dermatopathology is, there is something for everyone here, from medical students, to residents, to fellows, and to seasoned dermatopathologists.' Mark A. Hurt, President, WCP Pathology, Cutaneous Pathology, and Laboratories, Maryland Heights, Missouri, former President of the American Society of Dermatopathology
