Abstract

The skin is the biggest organ of our body; hence limitless diversity of the various types of lesions leaves a general pathologist struggling. This diversity ranges from allergic, inflammatory, bullous to melanocytic and non-melanocytic neoplasms including a wide variety of adnexal tumours. At times distinguishing features are subtle, and not enough clinical presentation and details are provided which are mandatory for critical evaluation of skin biopsies in correct perspective. For the obvious reason, a general pathology atlas cannot do justice with this subject as the subject demands; however an attempt is made to adequately describe diagnostic features of more commonly encountered lesions.
