Book Description

November 10, 2009 0702039411 978-0702039416 3

Thoroughly revised and up-dated, this comprehensive, authoritative reference will help both the experienced and novice practitioner diagnose skin diseases and disorders more accurately and effectively. A superb full colour art programme illustrates the salient pathological features of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions and will help the reader easily interpret key clinical and diagnostic points. This single-authored text incorporates the wealth of Dr Weedon's own personal observations and experience in his approach to the diagnosis and interpretation of skin biopsies and is full of useful diagnostic clues and pearls. This remarkable book is an indispensable resource for all those involved in the identification and evaluation of skin disorders.

Encyclopedic reference work that discusses established disorders, unusual and rare disease entities as well as incompletely defined entities.

The book is comprehensive enough to meet the requirements of trainee and practicing dermatopathologists or pathologists when reporting on the histopathology of skin specimens.

Over 1,200 large-sized, high quality illustrations.

Will facilitate an accurate diagnosis by accurately reproducing in the book what is seen through the microscope and thereby help identify the characteristic features of the lesion demonstrated.

For many of the features listed there will be practical advice on pitfalls and how to avoid them drawn from Dr Weedon's unrivalled personal experience.Will facilitate the daily practice of dermatopathology and save the practitioner a lot of time and money.

Tables and boxes that organize diseases into groups, synthesize diagnostic criteria and list differential diagnoses makes the book user friendly and the information easy-to-access.

Remarkably authoritative, comprehensive, current and relevant reference list for each entity. There are over 35,000 references in the text.This degree of inclusivity facilitates the identification of both key articles and more rare and unusual reports.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book provides complete and in-depth coverage of dermatopathological entities. The photomicrographs are of excellent quality and this edition has added tables listing the pertinent findings in various diseases. Our copy of the book is taped together -- a tribute to how much use it has already gotten from our residents.

This is one of the highest quality textbooks of dermatopathology. Splitting it into two volumes makes it easier to use. The prior single volume edition was a distinct threat to one's toes." - Barbara M. Egbert, MD(VA Palo Alto Health Care System), Excerpts from Doody's review service, Rating- 5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 volume set vs 1 volume version November 18, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
ISBN 978-0702039416: Two volumet set. Volume 1 is probably the same as the single volume version (since it bears a separate ISBN identical to the single volume version). Volume 2 is 881 pages of references (claimed to be 35,000 in all), and references only. Volume 2 is kind of a waste: the paper is the same as volume 1, with identical marginal color codes. Large type face. The set is currently sold at USD 351.

ISBN 9780702034855: single volume version, which is probably the same as volume 1 in the two-volume set. Currently sold at USD 315. Full access to the online materials (including references).

So the extra 36 bucks of the two-volume set is for a thick volume of references. Want it or not, you decide.

(By the way, the Odze book of Surgical Pathology of GI Tract .... also eliminates the references and leaves it all to the online database. )

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive..perhaps to a fault June 2, 2011
By Ben
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The latest edition of Weedon's now classic book will probably be the last, or at least the last Weedon will write. This is perhaps lucky, since by my calculations if the book continued to increase in size at the same rate compared with previous editions, it would break most bookshelves in a couple more editions.

This book is as close to comprehensive as one can get in a single author/single volume text (and it is in reality a single volume, the second is solely references!!). The approach is familiar: inflammatory conditions covered predominantly by a pattern approach which is a modification of Ackerman's, with separate (in many cases additional)coverage of some areas (e.g. infections) by a more traditional disease mechanism based classification. I think Weedon has struck the correct balance in dealing with the difficulty of a single disease manifesting with varying patterns- most conditions are covered in detail in the single most logical place, with brief descriptions and referral to the major section being found with the "secondary importance" reaction pattern or patterns. The coverage of neoplastic conditions is pretty standard and sound, the pictures in this section are a little patchy in quality and for some lesions more scant than might be ideal.

My criticisms of this book are:
1. Sometimes there is too much detail. The book is stuffed with unfiltered descriptions of single case reports and small series, many which seem to be of dubious merit when one looks at the original sources. In many places there are huge lists of disease associations, medication causes etc. with no real attempt to focus on the most critical issues. Weedon seems to have rarely taken a decision to leave something out.
