“This new textbook provides an invaluable resource for new and improving students of dermoscopy both to read and reference. It offers a methodical and comprehensive guide to understanding dermoscopy and using it to assess skin lesions.
…The breadth of material included and the clarity of writing have created a book that I suspect will be highly influential in its field, with the potential to become a standard reference for students of dermoscopy.” Ulster Medical Journal
“Training your eyes to recognize the subtle but important vascular and pigmented dermatoscopic patterns characteristic of melanoma and other skin cancers can be challenging and confusing. The clinical details in the color dermatoscopic photographs in this book are overall excellent and the findings are marked with different colored arrows. Each finding is described as what it represents histologically, making it easier to understand what a pseudopod, clod, etc., represents in a malignant lesion.
Dermatoscopic signs of malignancy are described in a step-by-step fashion. Multiple examples are shown giving readers a feeling for the range of how these features can present. There are very clear explanations of why these findings are indicative of a malignant process.
For novices, learning how to observe the proper patterns and vascular patterns can be daunting. From studying the multitude of dermatoscopic photographs, readers can begin to understand the subtleties that confirm the difference between benign and malignant lesions. There are decision tree diagrams to help in determining if a lesion is benign or malignant by categorizing it initially whether or not pigment is present, and then systematically evaluating it for the presence or absence of ulceration, “white clues”, and vessel morphology.” Doody’s Reviews
Dermatoscopy and Skin Cancer is a handbook to help dermatologists, dermatoscopists and GPs easily differentiate between benign and malignant tumours, leading to fewer unnecessary biopsies and earlier treatment of cancers.
Based around two easy to follow algorithms, Chaos and Clues and Pigment without Prediction, the book shows all dermatoscope users how to confidently diagnose skin lesions earlier and with greater precision.
In addition, this handbook also provides coverage of:
* the microanatomy of the skin
* specimen processing and histopathology
* the language of dermatoscopy to help name and define structures and patterns
* approaches to skin examination and photodocumentation
* revised pattern analysis as an additional diagnostic algorithm
* dermatoscopic features of common and significant lesions.
Using over 450 high quality images the authors provide a detailed algorithmic approach to assessing the skin – an approach that has been successfully taught to thousands of doctors around the world.
