The Lives of Lesions: Chronology in Dermatopathology
Each disease engaged in this handsome volume is traced throughout its course, from inception to completion, including involution of it where appropriate. That sequence is pictured for diseases as disparate as erythema multiforme and mycosis fungoides, nevus sebaceus and melanoma, pilomatricoma and squamous-cell carcinoma (including the superficial expression of one type of it known conventionally and wrongly as actinic [solar] keratosis). The method applied and the principles propagated in this volume can be utilized for every disease, not only of the skin, but of every organ. For this reason, Lives of Lesions enhances capability to think of disease in dynamic, rather than static, terms.
