An excerpt from "Pathology of Melanocytic Nevi and Malignant Melanoma, Second Edition", Pathology of Malignant Melanoma provides a highly practical approach to the histopathological diagnosis of melanoma of the skin. Emphasis is placed on the differential diagnosis of major forms of conventional melanoma, and the book also discusses unusual or rare variants that are difficult to recognize. This portable, user-friendly handbook addresses epidemiology, criteria for diagnosis and classification of melanoma, risk factors, and other morphological and cytological variants. More than 30 easy-to-read tables provide at-a-glance reference and over 100 full color illustrations complement the text
