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

"As ever, difficult things are difficult and few, if any, books provoke an epiphany of understanding and clarity. But this book makes its subject as clear as it can be, probably. It certainly appreciates the inherent difficulties and genuinely tries hard to help its reader - the 'teaching cases' are valuable. It emphasises and depicts well the clinical aspects of cutaneous lymphoma which, as even the casual observer will appreciate, is hugely emphasized by all authorities in the field." (ACP News, Autumn 2010)

"The authors have produced a compact, up-to-date and superbly illustrated book which is a pleasure to read and easy to comprehend. This book should serve as a vital reference tool not only for pathologists and dermatologists, but also for haematologists/oncologists involved in the care of patients with cutaneous lymphomas.... I would urge owners of the previous edition to consider obtaining the new one!" (The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, January 2010)
