    The new ediition of McKee’s is an outstanding textbook of dermatopathology and the baton has clearly been passed smoothly to Eduardo Calonje in maintaining and improving what was already a good book. The numerous clinical and histological photos are of uniformly good quality and the text is well written. The coverage (particularly of recondite reports from the literature) is perhaps a little less comprehensive than that in Weedon, but in many ways this is more a strength than a weakness, as the book is thus more readable.

    The coverage of the subject matter is fairly standard- a pattern based approach to inflammatory conditions and a fairly traditional approach to tumours. The chapters on hair, nail, genital and oral pathology are a useful feature in dealing with these specimens which constitute a less routine area of practice for many of us. I have viewed a few of the short on-line case presentations which are made available with purchase of the book and have particularly enjoyed Dr McKee’s methodical style of presentation.

    This book is clearly a joy for anyone who takes pleasure in reading beautiful textbooks of dermatopathology. In an age when there are so many good texts available and innumerable journal articles just a mouse click away, there is probably no such thing as a must have textbook- but if there were, this would be it!
