Description

A comprehensive review of all the vascular proliferations involving the skin and subcutaneous tissue, including recently described disease entities. Superbly illustrated with both clinical and histopathologic photographs, the book moves from a proposed new system of classification and nomenclature for vascular neoplasms, to a full discussion of benign and malignant proliferations, including hamartomas, benign neoplasms, malignant neoplasms, and several related newly reported diseases. The authors describe in-depth the clinical and morphologic aspects of each entity and detail their clinicopathologic correlation, differential diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy.show more

Review quote

...find a place on the shelves of those who are interested in this complex but exciting area of vascular tumors. The references are extensive, and would be useful when researching unusual conditions. - Eur J Plast Surg"...only truly knowledgeable clinicians and pathologists can identify other rare malignant vascular tumors at an early enough point in their course to offer patients the possibility of a cure. I know of no better way to acquire this essential knowledge than from this masterful book." -Arch Dermatolshow more

Back cover copy

Cutaneous vascular proliferations are exceedingly common, and with the recent identification of new diseases, their diagnosis, classification, and treatment can be complicated. In Pathology of Vascular Skin Lesions: Clinicopathologic Correlations, Omar P. Sangueza, md, and Luis Requena, md, review in detail all the vascular proliferations involving the skin and subcutaneous tissue, including recently described disease entities. Superbly illustrated with both clinical and histopathologic photographs, the book moves from a proposed new system of classification and nomenclature for vascular neoplasms, to a full discussion of benign and malignant proliferations, including hamartomas, benign neoplasms, and several newly reported related diseases. The authors provide an in-depth description of the clinical and morphologic aspects of each entity and detail their clinicopathologic correlation, differential diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy. Additional chapters outline the normal embryology, histology, and anatomy of skin vasculature, as well as the use of special techniques for the study of vascular proliferations. Comprehensive and practical, Pathology of Vascular Skin Lesions: Clinicopathologic Correlations provides dermatologists, pathologists, and skin researchers with a complete, authoritative guide to the diagnosis and treatment of vascular proliferations of the skin, all generously illustrated with a wide-ranging array of clinical cases and histopathologic specimens.show more
