Tropical Dermatopathology

by Manoj Singh

This book Tropical Dermatopathology is a handy and useful reference manual for practicing histopathologists, and an excellent knowledge base for resident trainees in pathology and dermatology. The book highlights the practical and assessable aspects of cutaneous diagnostic problems, and details its subject matter in a simple, understandable and assimilable manner, and is excellently illustrated. The explanation of terms commonly used in dermatopathology, which are conventionally considered the most jaw breaking ones in medicine, have been clarified at the very beginning of the book. Detailed procedures of skin biopsy have been outlined so that the subsequent processing of tissues for proper microscopic interpretation can become easy. The reaction patterns for categories of dermatological lesions and general diagnostic features have also been highlighted to guide the histopathologist in the correct direction to establishing a specific diagnosis. Immunofluorescence, which is of vital importance in the identification of several skin diseases has been emphasized from time to time with very good color illustrations. The text matter and the illustrations amply demonstrate the large body of experience and superb communicative ability of the author and his colleagues. Special emphasis has been laid on leprosy, tuberculosis, fungal infections of the skin, etc. This book will be found useful as a ready reference by all students of this subject, whether postgraduate students of pathology or dermatology, or practicing diagnostic pathologists and dermatologists.
