A Systematic Approach to Dermatopathology
Color Atlas with 420 Pages and Virtual Dermatopathology Slides
by Fred F. Soeprono, M.D., J.D. and Daniel E. Buxton, M.D. (Illustrator)
A lavishly illustrated guide to over 600
diseases of the skin and hair. Each
entry includes synonyms, clinical findings, histologic
features for diagnosis, differential diagnoses
and references when pertinent.
Through 25 years of teaching and reading dermatopathology
using the method of pattern recognition first propounded
by Dr. Bernard Ackerman of New York University,
Dr. Soeprono organized and presented the voluminous
material in A Systematic Approach which is both
comprehensible and digestible.
Over the last two decades, Dr. Soeprono personally
examined and collected the real cases of dermatopathology
that are included in this book.
Dr. Soeprono also visually demarcated the
histologic features of each entity for easy
illustration of the findings.In addition to being
a histologic primer, this is also a work of scientific
research and contains the entire exhaustive field of dermatopathology.

The four DVDs contain virtual slides
for most of the
entities described in the textbook. The virtual slides can
be viewed and interacted with using the
digital slide viewer (available for download on the
Internet and on the DVDs). The software enables rapid
access to crisp, true-color digital slide images
including magnification, panning, zooming, and
annotation of areas of interest.
