Dermatopathology: We've Only Just Begun!

General Approach to Histopathology

Dermatopathology is pattern recognition. From that perspective, a dermatologist is uniquely qualified to excel in this specialty. The key is to adapt the same skill sets that enable you to recognize clinical disease patterns and apply it to the microscope slide. It may take some of you more time to master the basic skills of reviewing a dermatopathology slide, but don't worry, you will all reach this goal!

The secret to learning dermatopathology is to view microscopic slides with a clinical eye and to view clinical lesions with a microscopic eye.
