"The latest addition to the Requisites In Dermatology Series is a concise, user-friendly guide, accompanied by full-text on-line access. This comprehensive quick-reference tool will be welcomed by dermatology and pathology registrars, both as an introductory text and for examination review. It is also a useful, convenient desk-top resource for practicing dermatologists and general pathologists. This book is a laser-sharp resource for students and for seasoned practitioners wanting a pictorial refresher course. If, heaven forbid, I were sitting for a dermatopathology exam in the near future, I’d be taking this book everywhere."
