Synopsis and Atlas of Lever's Histopathology of the Skin
by David Elder

Synopsis and Atlas of Lever's Histopathology of the Skin allows practitioners to recognize a diagnosis that can lead to a more detailed exploration of the topic.

Synopsis and Atlas of Lever's Histopathology of the Skin provides each disease typically illustrated with 5 color photomicrographs and is depicted within the framework of an algorithmic classification based on location, pattern, and cell type.

This important collection of images represents material from the last several decades up to newly collected slides, including many from cases of a more obscure nature and normally unavailable.
