The interpretation of melanocytic tumors represents probably the most difficult task in the field of dermatopathology. The second edition of this text and atlas depicts a broad range of the most important and most challenging melanocytic lesions. Each individual case is illustrated with at least three high-quality color photographs and is commented on at length, highlighting the diagnostic clues. The goal of the authors is to assist the ordinary pathologist in making a precise workable diagnosis in their daily practice. They achieve this by providing simple criteria that will serve as a sound basis for an unequivocal diagnosis of either a benign or a malignant melanocytic neoplasm. The reader will find Histological Diagnosis of Nevi and Melanoma to be an invaluable guide to correct diagnosis even in difficult or rare cases.

Molecular diagnostics is an exploding field, and recent advances in our understanding of the molecular basis of disease have provided a platform for the development of new diagnostic tests as well as tests to predict tumor behavior and potential response to targeted therapy. This textbook provides a reference and practical guide to molecular diagnostics for dermatologists and dermatopathologists. It outlines our current understanding of the molecular underpinnings of dermatologic disease, describes the appropriate use of currently available molecular tests, and explains the interpretation of these tests in the context of diagnosis and management. Tests relating to various disorders are covered, including but not confined to melanoma, genodermatoses, and infectious disease. Pitfalls are highlighted and user-friendly algorithmic approaches, presented.

A thorough updating of the best-selling, vital reference and textbook on melanocytic proliferations PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION: “Well-written and entertaining” —Modern Pathology “An extremely helpful guide for the practicing dermatopathologist or general pathologist” —Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine “An incredibly relevant clinical-histopathologic text” —Doody’s Melanocytic proliferations comprise a large number of pigmented lesions of the skin and muscosa. Of these, melanoma is of particular interest to clinicians and their patients. The rising number of incidences of melanoma has led to increased interest in the disease from diagnostic, management, and basic science perspectives. The Melanocytic Proliferations: A Comprehensive Textbook of Pigmented Lesions is the most complete single-source treatment of the subject available—thoroughly updated to reflect the very latest studies and clinical experience in diagnosing and treating melanocytic proliferation. This new edition of the bestseller presents an experience- and evidence-based review of pigmented lesions that encompasses the biology, diagnosis, and treatment of melanocytic proliferations and disorders, including melanoma. It comes with over 300 new color images—bringing the total to over 600—and contains two completely new chapters: Dermatoscopic Diagnosis of Melanoma; and Reflectance Confocal Microscopy. Chapter coverage includes: • An approach to the clinical diagnosis of melanoma, its precursors, and its clinical mimics • Freckles and lentigines • Benign acquired nevi • Dermal dendritic melanocytic proliferations/dermal melanocytoses • Spitz nevus • Combined nevus, deep penetrating nevus, plexiform spindle cell nevus, and borderline tumors of the deep penetrating nevus variant • Recurrent melanocytic nevus • Congenital nevi • Dysplastic melanocytic nevi, de novo intradermal epithelioid and lentiginous melanocytic dysplasias, and nevi at specific anatomic sites • Melanoma • Conjunctival melanocytic proliferations • Use of adjunctive immunoperoxidase, molecular, and ultrastructural studies in the diagnosis of melanocytic proliferations • Biology of melanoma • Borderline melanocytic proliferation • Dermatoscopic diagnosis of melanoma • Reflectance confocal microscopy • Therapy of melanoma The Melanocytic Proliferations: A Comprehensive Textbook of Pigmented Lesions is an incredibly important text for all clinical pathologists, dermatopathologists, surgical pathologists, dermatologists, cosmetic physicians, and surgeons.

This book details the histologic clues in diagnosing the inflammatory dermatoses and neoplastic process of the vulva. The inflammatory dermatoses are divided into histologic patterns to aid recognition. Expert authors provide updates on ancillary techniques such as special stains, immunohistochemistry and chromogenic in situ hybridization when applicable. New advances in classifying squamous lesions as well as staging melanocytic lesions are outlined. They include the recent CAP/ASCCP (College of American Pathologists and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology) lower anogenital squamous terminology for HPV-associated lesions and the 2009 AJCC (American Joint Committee on Cancer) staging system for melanoma. New advances in molecular findings and potential targeted therapy are discussed for the squamous, melanocytic, adnexal and soft tissue tumors whenever it is pertinent. Vulvar Pathology will be a useful diagnostic guide for general pathologists, pathology trainees, dermatopathologists, dermatologists, and gynecologic pathologists in rendering diagnoses in vulvar inflammatory dermatoses as well as melanocytic, squamous, adnexal, and soft tissue neoplasms of the vulva.​
