The continous worldwide demand for this standard atlas prompted the authors to assemble an updated and enlarged second edition.

Recent developments and insights are described in a new chapter on "Advanced Dermatoscopical Diagnosis." It covers new aspects, predominantly on pathological changes of the facial skin, such as in melanoma.

Approximately 70 illustrations have been included keeping the didactical concept of combining macro- and microscopical images in one figure plate.

Excellent physican review of dermatoscopic criteria for diagnosis of melanoma and associated lesions. With the epidemic increase in melanoma, a good guide for dermatologist as well as GP's. ABCD criteria is a generally good algorithmic approach, however some data suggest more detailed global approach in trained hands is more sensitive. Good photographs. Clear descriptions.
