Dermatopathology in the Desert is an annual resource for surgical pathologists and dermatopathologists to refine their diagnostic skills when confronted with complex and unusual melanocytic lesions, adnexal tumors, cutaneous lymphomas/soft tissue tumors, and diseases of the nails. The struggle to diagnose lesions in these categories is manifest by the nature of consultations received by the faculty, provoking their awareness of need for continuing education and updates in the context of contemporary revisions to precise diagnostic criteria and ancillary studies.
