What is Dermatopathology?
Dermatopathology is a branch of medicine that deals with the study of diseases of the skin. It combines both pathology (the study of disease) and dermatology (the study of the skin). A dermatopathologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis of skin diseases.
What Does a Dermatopathologist Do?
A dermatopathologist examines biopsy specimens of the skin under a microscope to diagnose various conditions, such as skin cancers, inflammatory disorders, and infectious diseases. They may also perform direct immunofluorescence studies and electron microscopy to further characterize certain conditions. In addition, dermatopathologists often provide consultations and second opinions for other physicians and patients.
