The rise in popularity of dermoscopy has meant that more and more practitioners need a ready reference to consult in a clinical setting where larger atlases are less practical. The Handbook of Dermoscopy features a wealth of photographs, checklists, and algorithms to assist in spot diagnoses. Coverage includes melanocytic lesions, seborrheic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma, dermatofibroma, vascular lesions. Melanoma, pattern analyses, the ABCD/ABC/ABCDE rule, and Menzies's method.


"…I have found this book extremely useful in patient care. For residents and dermatologists learning to use a dermatoscope, it is a valuable tool. There are several other books available on this subject, but none is as concise and portable as this one."
