Stolz: Color Atlas of Dermatoscopy
By Wilhelm Stolz
2015 (3rd ed), 320 pages, 500 illus, $180 list
The continuous, worldwide demand for this standard atlas has encouraged the authors and publishers to prepare an updated and enlarged third edition. Dermatoscopy is a relatively new technique and allows the doctor to make a rapid and highly accurate assessment of whether a pigmented lesion (mole) is likely to be malignant. Otherwise, the patient would have to undergo a biopsy and laboratory analysis of the specimen. Thus, a dermatoscope, costing a 100 dollars, can save lives, or at least, the high costs of unnecessary surgery. This book is a highly visual guide to the subject and will teach the necessary pattern recognition skills. It really is an atlas, in that, it contains over 500 high resolution colour photographs with detailed accompanying diagrams to explain how to recognise the key diagnostic features of each lesion. The main focus of the book is the daily challenge which physicians face when evaluating patients with pigmented lesions.
