DermatopathologyDermatopathology is the combination of the specialized sciences of dermatology (the treatment of skin disorders) and pathology (the diagnosis of disease through microscopic observation). Therefore, dermatopathologists use information from your general dermatologist combined with first-hand observation of skin cells and other samples through microscopes to diagnose skin conditions.

Because of their specialized training in diagnosing skin disorders and their observations and study of skin cells at the microscopic level, dermatopathologists are the best possible choice for diagnosing a skin condition, or for confirming a dermatologist’s diagnosis.
