A complete guide to the diagnosis and management of cutaneous lymphomas and pseudolymphomas.
Easily misdiagnosed as benign skin diseases, malignant cutaneous lymphomas can present a variety of challenges to trainees and practicing specialists alike. Skin Lymphoma: The Illustrated Guide has been designed to alleviate some of these difficulties, providing all those working in the dermatological field with a complete and easily consulted text on this potentially fatal cancer. Authored by renowned dermatopathologist Professor Lorenzo Cerroni, its exhaustive contents cover the clinical presentations and pathological correlates of cutaneous lymphomas in their various forms, alongside their prognoses and strategies for treatment.
This expanded fifth edition features a wealth of enhancements and additions, including new chapters, updated content, and more than 1,300 full-color illustrations. Revised to reflect the most recent World Health Organization (WHO) and European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) classifications, its cutting-edge approach to its subject incorporates the latest molecular data, alongside more familiar histopathological and clinical features. The book's considerable scope has been broadened into new and groundbreaking areas, the details of which are explored in chapters discussing primary cutaneous acral CD8+ T-cell lymphoma, composite lymphomas, and non-neoplastic cutaneous signs of systemic lymphomas, as well as in new sections on previously unexamined entities such as implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
