Preface
During my career as a ghter pilot and then a pilot-physician, checklists were an integral part of procedures and ying. Similarly, this book was created as a study guide, review book, rapid reference and microscope “wingman”.Weedon’s Skin Pathology Essentials indicates the classic features, both clinically and histologically, including numerous photographs of each side-by-side. Additionally, genetic defects, classic treatments, commonly associated disorders and “memory joggers” were included to assist in remembering the vast amount of information.
As a result, this book describes the more common location and appearance, and not every variation or possibility is described. Thus, to complement this book, it is designed for use in conjunction with the primary referenceWeedon’s Skin Pathology. Enjoy my dermatologist’s “checklist”!
