Eachcase is illustrated with at least three high-quality color photographs and iscommented on at length, highlighting the diagnostic clues. The goal of theauthors is to assist both general pathologists and dermatopathologists inmaking an accurate diagnosis applicable to their daily practice, and one thatcan be understood by clinicians. They achieve this by providing criteria that canserve as a sound basis for an unequivocal diagnosis in most cases.
