Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology

 Dermatology, Pathology  Comments Off on Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology
Feb 272019

“Neoplastic mimics or ìpseudotumorsî can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysisóclinical, radiologic, and pathologicóand thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

Hundreds of color images and analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies, and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of the entities described are uncommon, Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees skin cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.

This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the skin. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of skin lesions that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.

Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology Features:

Over 400 high-quality images showcase the full range of nonneoplastic and neoplastic mimics in skin
Concise, specific text descriptions to make the book easy to use as a visual reference
Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens”

Child Abuse and its Mimics in Skin and Bone

 Dermatology  Comments Off on Child Abuse and its Mimics in Skin and Bone
Jan 272019

Of all children reported to child protective services for suspected maltreatment in any form, the percentage of substantiated cases of actual physical abuse is quite small. There are a number of dermatological or radiologically demonstrable musculoskeletal lesions that have been, or could be mistaken for, intentional physical abuse by the inexperienced or untrained observer.

Child Abuse and Its Mimics in Skin and Bone illustrates the classic manifestations of physical abuse by dermatological and radiological examination as a standard against which the mimickers of physical abuse can be compared. Beginning with a historical perspective on child abuse, the book explores manifestations of superficial and musculoskeletal trauma in children. It examines conditions often mistaken for child abuse, ranging from rubella to leukemia and bowing deformities to vitamin A intoxication, as well as a plethora of dermatological conditions that can mimic signs of physical abuse.

Designed for a broad spectrum of individuals who may first encounter a possibly abused child, the book presents hundreds of photos—many in color—and examples collected by the authors over their years of experience in their respective fields. Where appropriate, the authors provide pertinent historical, physical, and laboratory information in support of the diagnosis.

With the combined insight of top experts in forensic radiology and dermatology, this volume enables clinicians and others confronted with cases involving these conditions to avoid a rush to judgment that could wreak havoc in a family and quite possibly delay needed treatment for an actual medical condition.

Acneiform Eruptions in Dermatology: A Differential Diagnosis

 Dermatology  Comments Off on Acneiform Eruptions in Dermatology: A Differential Diagnosis
Jan 122019

Dermatologists commonly treat acne, which affects 40 to 50 million Americans each year and about 85 percent of all patients at some point in their lives. Dermatologists, primary care doctors, and pediatricians see these patients every day in practice. It is important to treat the skin effectively not only to reduce the risk of physical scarring, but also to address the negative psychosocial impact this disease carries. Improving the skin can improve self-confidence, interpersonal relationships, and performance in school or at work. Acneiform Eruptions in Dermatology is a practical, full-color guide to the differential diagnosis of acne vulgaris and the treatment of acne-like conditions. It is organized into sections by subtype of condition (e.g., infections, genetic syndromes, medication-caused) and includes a section of variants of acne that may be misdiagnosed. Within the sections, individual chapters discuss each variant of the condition and begin with a helpful bulleted summary of its defining clinical features. Extensive color clinical images appear throughout the book.
