Filled with figures, tables, and schematics, Atlas of Dermoscopy introduces dermoscopy and provides a guidebook for those who use it regularly in their practice. Dr. Alfred W. Kopf, a pioneer in education and in the clinical aspects of malignant melanoma, has joined forces with Dr. Ralph Braun and Dr. Ashfaq Marghoob to produce this concise and practical guide. It can be used as a tutorial for learning dermoscopy, as a quick source during the clinical evaluation of a particular lesion, or as a general reference book. The editors have created an up-to-date resource on what is considered by many to be the standard method for assessing pigmented lesions.

Dermoscopy is a clinical technique which allows for detailed examination of skin lesions and is more clinically accurate in skin oncology than other diagnostic tools. Extensively used as an educational text, previous editions of this atlas have led to significant reductions in excisions or referrals of pigmented skin lesions. Dermoscopy: An Atlas 3rd Edition is a practical and comprehensive manual that will improve your results in diagnosis of skin tumors and related conditions. This well illustrated, highly acclaimed reference provides a complete understanding of the use of dermoscopy, explaining diagnostic features and examining benign melanocytic, melanoma and non-melanocytic lesions. This book will be of interest to general practitioners, skin cancer specialists, dermatologists and any clinician involved in diagnosing skin tumors and related conditions. NEW FEATURES IN THE THIRD EDITION - Extensively revised and includes 193 new figures - A new summary chapter - An on-line learning centre with a semi-interactive self-test quiz showing over 250 lesions

A lavishly illustrated guide to this important diagnostic technique Praise for previous editions: "Using the atlas as an education intervention resulted in a 39% improvement in the sensitivity for the diagnosis of melanoma by primary care physicians."--British Journal of Dermatology "The illustrations in this book are outstanding. The quality of the photographs of the clinical lesions, the histopathology and the surface microscopy are magnificent. The atlas is an important contribution to the process of improving diagnostic accuracy for melanoma. Anyone who uses a dermatoscope needs to have this book."--Prof. Robin Marks, Department of Dermatology, St. Vincent's Hospital, University of Melbourne "This is an extremely useful and educational text that formed the basis of my core knowledge of the principles of dermoscopy when I first became interested in treating skin cancers....Indispensable."--Dr. Ben Cook, Fellow of the Skin Cancer College of Australia and New Zealand Dermoscopy (also known as surface microscopy) is a clinical technique that allows for detailed examination of skin lesions and is more clinically accurate in skin oncology than other diagnostic tools.

Building on a successful first edition, this revised and extended Atlas of Dermoscopy demonstrates the state of the art of how to use dermoscopy to detect and diagnose lesions of the skin, with a special emphasis on malignant skin tumours. With well over 1,500 photographs, drawings, and tables, the book has extensive clinical correlation with dermoscopic images, so readers can appreciate the added benefits of dermoscopy by comparing the clinical morphology seen with the naked eye with the corresponding dermoscopic morphology; extensive illustrations from the image collections of internationally recognized experts, who have years of experience refining their techniques; and extensive schematic drawings to help readers single out the key structures and patterns to recognize in the dermoscopic images. The second edition has important new material on such topics as observed differences between polarized and non-polarized dermoscopy, newly recognized structures and patterns, refined and revised suggestions for pattern analysis, dermoscopy of the hair and nails, and how to integrate dermoscopy into general clinical practice. It also covers dermoscopically equivocal, false negative, and false positive lesions; discusses further indications for dermoscopy beyond skin cancer; and details common checklists of criteria and algorithms used to diagnose skin lesions.

This atlas, containing a wealth of clinical and dermoscopic images, describes and illustrates the applications of dermoscopy in a wide variety of skin disorders that may be encountered in the pediatric population. Key features and other salient aspects are highlighted with the aim of enabling the clinician to reach a fast and reliable diagnosis in all cases. Dermoscopy is a non-invasive technique that allows rapid and magnified in vivo observation of the skin, with visualization of morphologic features imperceptible to the naked eye. Dermoscopy has revolutionized the approach to pigmented skin lesions, greatly improving diagnostic accuracy. Furthermore, over the past few years it has been demonstrated to be very useful in the diagnosis, follow-up, and therapeutic monitoring of a range of other skin disorders, including cutaneous/mucosal infections, ectoparasitoses, inflammatory diseases, and hair and nail abnormalities. Being non-invasive, dermoscopy is particularly suitable for use in the pediatric population, in which invasive diagnostic procedures may be problematic.

Dermoscopy is a non-invasive, widely used diagnostic tool that aids the diagnosis of skin lesions and is proven to increase the accuracy of melanoma diagnosis. This book is a practical guide to dermoscopy for clinicians. The text begins with an overview of the technique, how it links clinical dermatology and histopathology, the dermoscope, and pattern recognition. The following sections provide in depth coverage of the application of dermoscopy and clinical features in the diagnosis of different dermatologic disorders, including vascular lesions, skin tumours, autoimmune dermatoses, pigmentary disorders, and much more. The final chapters discuss dermoscopy in diagnostic dilemmas and in therapeutic monitoring, also providing a selection of algorithms to assist learning. The text is highly illustrated with more than 500 clinical images and each topic concludes with a keynote message summarising the salient dermoscopic features.

This practical atlas describes the use of dermoscopy in the clinic, a technique that is increasingly used by the clinical dermatologist. It revolves around the use of clinical cases, simulating what happens in the clinic when the dermatologist is presented with a patient who has pigmented lesions. Dermatologists perform diagnoses based on what they see on the skin and with these images recognize different diseases. This whole spectrum of forms and shapes is reflected in colour. Dermoscopy opens a new and very wide field of structures and colors that can not be seen with the naked eye and, with appropriate training and the use of this book, improves our clinical diagnosis. Comprehensive Atlas of Dermatoscopy Cases teaches the technique through specially selected clinical cases that cover the entire field of dermoscopy, providing the reader a thorough understanding of the techniques and methodologies associated with diagnosis using dermatoscopy. It is of great use to the trainee dermatologist and any practicing dermatologist seeking to expand their skills with this important diagnostic tool.
