Constituting a large percentage of everyday diagnostic practice, melanocytic pathology is a complex and challenging area with many difficult-to-diagnose lesions. This highly illustrated reference, written by three of the world’s leading dermatopathologists, provides authoritative guidance in the accurate diagnosis of even the most challenging pigmented skin tumors, helping you avoid pitfalls and recognize mimics.

Dr. Klaus Busam is a Professor of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the Director of the combined Memorial Sloan Kettering/Cornell Dermatopathology Training Program. His training is from the Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School combined program. His interests include the utilization of clinical, histological and molecular diagnostic methods to optimize diagnostic accuracy and best predict the behavior of melanocytic neoplasms. As a dermatopathologist, he is recognized as an international expert in the diagnosis of melanoma and is sent many second opinion cases both from within and outside of the United States. As a researcher he is focused on developing molecular based methods to improve the diagnosis and prognostication of melanocytic neoplasms. He has authored over 250 peer reviewed journal articles and numerous textbooks in dermatopathology.
