Occult Patient Intervention Leading to Misleading Histopathology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Patients with skin conditions may apply or consume a wide variety of "remedies" with a similarly wide range of effects that may alter the clinical and/or dermatologic presentations of the lesion. Dermatologists or other clinicians should probe for this and carefully document such treatment, as well as any treatment administered by a health care professional or any other person. The dermatopathologist, however, cannot assume that this has been done or done successfully, and therefore must be on constant alert to recognize the effects of such "remedies."
