Synopses & Reviews
Lever's Histopathology of the Skin, first published in 1949, is a classic work that has been used by dermatopathologists, pathologists, and dermatologists in their own training, in their current practices, and in the training of students. The organization used in the book is based on Walter Lever's original scheme, which is centered on general attributes of the diseases including pathophysiological and etiological considerations. Considering the comprehensive nature of the book, this structure is more efficient than a pattern approach since related entities are discussed in juxtaposition, instead of being scattered throughout the book. However, the pattern-recognition "primer" (Ch. 5) used since the eighth edition will be retained and extended, based on ideas developed for the Atlas. Chapters will also include discussions of the pattern-based approach in relation to differential diagnoses. Increased attention and visibility will also be given to the book’s clinical correlations by adding related sections to each chapter. An expert clinician, Misha Rosenbach, will serve as an associate editor to ensure accuracy and currency of these sections.
- Addition of new diseases and updates to information on existing diseases
- Comprehensive coverage
- Emphasis on pathogenesis, immunohistochemistry and molecular techniques as used in the laboratory
- Expansion of pattern-recognition "primer" with extensive cross-referencing to the chapters
- Increased attention and visibility to clinical correlations – “Clinical Summary” and “Principles of Treatment” added to each chapter
- Maintains traditional organization of pathophysiological classification of disease while incorporating "primer" and discussion on pattern-algorithm diagnosis
- Over 1800 full-color images
- Over 200 new images

Lever's Histopathology of the Skin is a classic, comprehensive work that has been used by generations of dermatopathologists, pathologists, and dermatologists to further their knowledge, in their current practices, and in the training of their students. The pathophysiologic organization is based on Walter Lever's original scheme, with appropriate modifications over the years, and is more efficient than the pattern method, since related entities are discussed in juxtaposition.
This edition contains over 1,400 full-color illustrations, including photomicrographs and clinical photographs of diseases not covered in previous editions. The chapter on algorithmic pattern recognition has been expanded and extensively cross-referenced to the chapters on diseases to aid readers in generating differential diagnoses for unknown cases.
