Skin lymphomas are relatively rare and can be easily misdiagnosed as psoriasis or dermatitis. These lymphomas can be fatal. Consequently, those in training in dermatology and pathology need to have a good understanding of the clinical presentations and the pathological correlates of this challenging disease.
This updated edition provides:
•A full-colour illustrated text and atlas that combines pathology with clinical features and treatment
•updated nomenclature according to WHO/EORTC and WHO classifications
•Images to expand the diagnostic potential
•Cases to enhance the scope for teaching and learning
