Special Issue "Advances in Diagnostic Dermatopathology, from Histopathologic to Molecular Studies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2022) | Viewed by 45105
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: anatomic pathology (surgical pathology); clinical pathology (laboratory medicine); immunopathology (particularly B-cell immunity); glycobiology (particularly carbohydrate addressin)
Dermatopathology is the most sophisticated area in anatomic pathology; we can easily observe superficial skin lesions using our eyes without the need for an invasive approach and can easily compare gross configurations to microscopic findings. Meanwhile, dermatopathology has recently focused on the study of various cutaneous diseases at molecular biology level. Additionally, dozens and dozens of cutaneous diseases are now being well-researched—melanocytic nevus and malignant melanoma, psoriasis, pemphigus, allergic dermatitis, autoimmune diseases, skin infections, and so on.
Here, we invite investigators such as dermatologists and pathologists to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that reveal novel findings of diagnostic dermatopathology such as diagnosable new morphological (histopathologic) findings, immunohistochemical and immunofluorescent markers, and molecular techniques. We also invite articles that discuss prognostic examinable factors in skin tumors and intractable dermatitis. Relevant case reports will be warmly acknowledged.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
