Common traps/pitfalls and emergency diagnosis in dermatopathology

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Although all diagnoses in dermatopathology are important, three main groups may be highlighted. One group includes diagnoses that need to be communicated to the treating physician as soon as possible (this review includes infectious process while erythema multiforme and related diseases are discussed elsewhere in this series). A second group has diagnoses significant for their association with syndromes or internal malignancies. And a third group includes malignant lesions that can be confused histologically with benign ones or lesions that have an aggressive behavior unexpected for their apparently low-grade histology. This manuscript describes some of these important diseases and the method we use to reach the diagnosis, and as such it may be considered to be a “survival” guide for the dermatopathologist.
