The 4 th edition of the book "Fundamentals of Pathology of Skin" by Venkataram Mysore is a very concise and handy book. The field of dermatopathology has always been intriguing as well as interesting. After being in the discipline of pathology for the last 39 years, I can say that it is a skin biopsy which forces me to open a dermatopathology book for the interpretation and accurate diagnosis.

This book has a list of various abbreviations commonly used by the dermatologists and is divided very aptly into 2 sections - inflammatory diseases and tumors. The diagrammatic representations of the various microscopic changes in skin pathology are useful for not just the residents in dermatopathology, but for the consultants too. The microphotographs, differential diagnosis and histopathological changes in various dermatological lesions are dealt with in detail along with a diagnostic algorithm.

Line diagrams in the book are very helpful for the residents to understand the pathology. Improvement of histopathology pictures in subsequent editions is recommended.

I, once again, recommend this book for residents and consultants in dermatopathology and also for practicing dermatologists as a ready reckoner.
