Dermoscopy: An Atlas (3rd Rev. Edition)


Dermoscopy is a clinical technique that allows for a detailed examination of skin lesions and is more clinically accurate in skin oncology than other diagnostic tools. Extensively used as an educational text, previous editions of this atlas have led to significant reductions in excisions or referrals of pigmented skin lesions.

This well-illustrated, highly acclaimed reference provides a complete understanding of the use of dermoscopy, explaining diagnostic features and examining benign melanocytic, melanoma and non-melanocytic lesions.
