Lever's Histopathology of the Skin is a classic, comprehensive work that has been used by generations of dermatopathologists, pathologists, and dermatologists to further their knowledge, in their current practices, and in the training of their students. The pathophysiologic organization is based on Walter Lever's original scheme, with appropriate modifications over the years, and is more efficient than the pattern method, since related entities are discussed in juxtaposition.

This edition contains over 1,400 full-color illustrations, including photomicrographs and clinical photographs of diseases not covered in previous editions. The chapter on algorithmic pattern recognition has been expanded and extensively cross-referenced to the chapters on diseases to aid readers in generating differential diagnoses for unknown cases.

A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

--Comprehensive coverage
--Emphasis on pathogenesis, immunohistochemistry and molecular techniques as used in the laboratory

--Over 1,300 full-color illustrations


  • Addition of new diseases and updates to information on existing diseases
  • Over 200 new images (histopathology of "new" diseases and clinical images) will be added
  • Expansion of pattern-recognition "primer" and extensive cross-referencing to the chapters and perhaps also to the second edition of the Atlas
