About this book
Of all the techniques used to treat non melanoma skin cancer, the highest cure rates belong to the Mohs surgical procedure. Critical to this technique is optimal preparation and interpretation of frozen sections. With more than 400 high resolution figures, the Atlas of Mohs and Frozen Section Cutaneous Pathology is the premier textbook on the topic, serving as a highly practical guide to microscopic analysis, diagnosis, and discrimination of common and problematic cutaneous neoplasms.
Highlights of the Atlas include:
- microscopic anatomy of the various cutaneous and mucosal sites of the body
- diagnosis of basic and routine dermatologic entities, including basal cell carcinoma and its variants as well as squamous cell carcinoma and its variants
- the discrimination of benign epidermal-derived or adnexal-derived neoplasms
- diagnosis and distinction of rare and/or deadly neoplasms
- a troubleshooting guide dealing with quality control of the frozen section technique, including cutting and staining
- discussion of new techniques, including immunohistochemistry.
Comprehensive and presented in full color, the Atlas of Mohs and Frozen Section Cutaneous Pathology is an indispensable reference for anyone involved with the Mohs procedure, including dermatologic surgeons, Mohs cutaneous surgeons, as well as pathologists and dermatopathologists who perform frozen section analysis of cutaneous specimens.
