Description

Lever's Histopathology of the Skin is a classic, comprehensive work that has been used by generations of dermatopathologists, pathologists, and dermatologists to further their knowledge, in their current practices, and in the training of their students. The pathophysiologic organization is based on Walter Lever's original scheme, with appropriate modifications over the years, and is more efficient than the pattern method, since related entities are discussed in juxtaposition.

This edition contains over 1,400 full-color illustrations, including photomicrographs and clinical photographs of diseases not covered in previous editions. The chapter on algorithmic pattern recognition has been expanded and extensively cross-referenced to the chapters on diseases to aid readers in generating differential diagnoses for unknown cases.

A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

Annotation

Established for 55 years as the preeminent dermatopathology text, Lever's Histopathology of the Skin is now in its Ninth Edition--thoroughly updated and now illustrated entirely in full color. With contributions from over 50 recognized experts, comprehensive coverage of the histopathologic diagnosis of skin diseases, and up-to-the-minute information on pathogenesis, immunohistochemistry, and contemporary molecular techniques, this text is a must for in-training and practicing dermatologists and pathologists. This edition contains more than 1,300 full-color illustrations, including photomicrographs and new clinical photographs of dermatologic conditions and reaction patterns. The chapter on algorithmic pattern recognition has been expanded and extensively cross-referenced to the chapters on diseases to aid readers in generating differential diagnoses for unknown cases.

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Barbara M. Egbert, MD(VA Palo Alto Health Care System)
Description: This has been a major textbook of dermatopathology for over 50 years. It covers the major and many minor diseases of the skin using photomicrographs, clinical photographs, graphs, and charts that add to its usefulness. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose of this edition is to provide an incremental revision and update of two previous editions. These are worthy objectives, but the changes are minor. Much of the current edition is the same as the 2005 edition, although important updates are included, such as those on molecular mechanisms and techniques currently used to study skin disease.
Audience: The book is targeted at practitioners of dermatopathology, dermatology, and pathology. Residents in these fields and physicians in other fields would find this book helpful in answering specific questions about dermatopathology. The authors are experts in the field of dermatopathology.
Features: Using traditional clinicopathologic classifications of cutaneous diseases, the book covers inflammatory, neoplastic, and congenital lesions of the skin. Some algorithmic classification features are also included. The best features include a description of the clinical features of the entity along with a full discussion of the histopathology. The illustrations are very good and this edition includes additional clinical photographs. Shortcomings of the book include the continued repetition of some facts from the prior editions, such as those regarding malignant melanoma. The indication that lentigo maligna is 10 percent of melanomas should be changed. Lentigo maligna is the primary malignant melanoma we see. Also, lentigo maligna is accepted as melanoma in situ and does have a classical and a more "dysplastic" appearing histology, often within the same lesion.
Assessment: This is an excellent and the most up-to-date dermatopathology textbook. McKee et al.'s Pathology of the Skin: with Clinical Correlations, 3rd edition (Elsevier, 2005), also a useful book, has a large number of color photographs. The pictures in Lever's are small in comparison, although the authors do recommend using their atlas (Atlas and Synopsis of Lever's Histopathology of the Skin, 2nd edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007) for additional photographs. There is justification for replacing the prior edition with the addition of the clinical photographs and the changes in the field. Waiting one more year might have allowed incorporation of even more changes.
