Used by generations of physicians who encounter patients with dermatological diseases, Lever’s Dermatopathology: Histopathology of the Skin comprehensively covers skin disease in which histopathology plays an important role in diagnosis. The updated 12th Edition, edited by Drs. David E. Elder, Rosalie Elenitsas, George F. Murphy, Misha Rosenbach, Adam I. Rubin, John T. Seykora, and Xiaowei Xu, maintains the proven, clinicopathologic classification of cutaneous disease while incorporating a “primer” on pattern-algorithm diagnosis. It features larger images throughout, as well as thoroughly revised content with new diseases and new information on pathophysiology and molecular pathogenesis—all in an easy-to-navigate, highly readable format.
