Although many skin lesions are pigmented, Dermatoscopy of Non-pigmented Skin Tumors: Pink – Think – Blink addresses non-pigmented lesions, which may be more difficult to diagnose. It discusses dermatoscopy not only as a reliable tool for diagnosis, but also for the monitoring of treatment outcomes following topical therapy.
The clinical diagnosis of non-pigmented skin lesions is one of the most challenging in the daily routine. To arrive at a correct diagnosis—or at least an adequate management plan—the clinician needs to collect many pieces of information and put them together like a puzzle. Illustrated with nearly 200 color clinical and dermatoscopic photographs, this book is an invaluable guide for clinicians striving to solve the diagnostic puzzle and correctly identify non-pigmented lesions.

This book summarizes the potent effect of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) on the photoaging and cancer formation. Skin is the largest human organ which continually reconstructs itself to ensure its viability, integrity, and ability to provide protection for the body. This protection can be compromised by the aging of the skin which ultimately promotes skin inflammation, impaired wound repair, and increased risk of skin cancer. The book entails mechanistic insights into the UVR-induced immunomodulation and DNA damage in the skin to delineate the pathogenesis, and develop novel ways for prevention of photoaging of the skin cells. It also elucidates the potential of nanotechnology in the treatment of skin cancer. Further, it discusses the bioinformatics approaches to understand the molecular mechanism of photoaging and cancer formation.
