Summary
*** The fourth edition of this volume is expected mid-2018. ***

This book provides an authoritative guide to the histological and genetic typing of human tumours of the skin. This volume covers keratinocytic, melanocytic, appendageal, haematopoietic, soft tissue and neural tumours, as well as inherited tumour syndromes. Each tumour is introduced with a concise definition and discussion of nomenclature, followed by a summary of what is known about its incidence, age and sex distribution, location, clinical signs and symptoms, pathological features, associated genetic alterations, and predictive factors. Distinctive features are further characterized through the inclusion of over 600 colour photographs and numerous MRIs, CT scans, and charts showing genetic alterations. The classification uses ICD-O codes from the third edition.
