Practical Dermatopathology recalls the historical sessions in dermatopathology given in Palm Springs by Dr. Bernard Ackerman, an annual event that attracted dermatopathologists and dermatologists to his charismatic personality and profound knowledge. Under the direction of Dr. Steven Billings of the Cleveland Clinic, a vibrant, modern and pragmatic version of dermatopathology offers the morphology of soft tissue and melanocytic lesions, adnexal tumors, cutaneous lymphoma and inflammatory skin lesions with molecular correlations. The faculty are preeminent and engaging.
