"I liked the layout of this textbook and it provided an excellent synopsis of the diseases that were included. The book is also accessible online...It is a textbook that should be available in all training departments for both dermatologists and histopathologist."
The Bulletin, October 2010
"Busam and a group of experienced diagnostic dermatopathologists hit that mark precisely with this text...Books offering an introduction to the field and those aiming to cover the "essentials" also abound. What sets this volume apart, however, is the emphasis on differential diagnosis, logical organization, and liberal use of summary tables. Very few books are as practical for a busy practicing pathologist or resident as this volume." - Barbara M. Egbert, MD, Doody's Review Service
