About this book

Introduction

Complete with dozens of color clinical photos to aid readers in diagnosis and treatment, this book includes TNM staging, description of the histopathology, and a step-by-step guide through the diagnosis of the disease. It is the most common form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, generally affecting the skin, though sometimes progressing internally over time. However, there is very little comprehensive information on this subject for dermatologists, dermatopathologists, and oncologists seeking deeper insight into this lymphoma in one all-inclusive text. Clinician's Guide to Mycosis Fungoidesmeets this need, covering the history, categories of disorder, molecular analysis, etiology, epidemiology, effect on body systems, disorder symptoms, and treatment. Additionally, the various recommended treatments of mycosis fungoides are explained, using clinical research and case studies as guidance.

Reviews

“The purpose is to provide an inclusive reference for clinicians who suspect a patient may have MF or have a patient with a known diagnosis of MF who seeks care. The audience is dermatologists and oncologists. … this guide provides a very good basis for understanding the complexities of this disease.” (Patricia Wong, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
