What does a dermatopathologist do?
- Dermatopathology cases may include melanoma, and other skin disorders; immunologic, infectious and pediatric diseases.
- Specialized pathology of the skin.
- A dermatopathologist is a highly trained physician who specializes in diagnosing disorders of the skin under a microscope. The subspecialty of dermatopathology is a combination of both dermatology (the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and nail diseases) and pathology (identification of diseases microscopically).
- A dermatopathologist is often referred to as the Sherlock Holmes of Skin because, in order to make a definitive diagnosis, he or she must make microscopic observations regarding your skin tissue, as well as assess information received from your physician.
- Because of this highly specialized pathology, a dermatopathologist should be the diagnostician of choice when your physician suspects various skin diseases. Dermatopathology cases may include melanoma, and other skin disorders, immunologic, infectious and pediatric diseases. Since a misdiagnosis of certain skin disorders can be fatal, it is imperative that you and your physician receive the most accurate and timely diagnosis.
- Diagnosing your skin tissue is not another automated laboratory test. Dermatopathologists provide a personal, consultative service to your physician, which includes analyzing your medical information in conjunction with observations through the microscope. The ultimate goal is to provide the best possible patient care for you, the patient.
