Dermatopathology is a subspecialty of dermatology and surgical pathology that represents the study of skin disease at a microscopic and molecular level. It encompasses both the diagnosis of individual patients through the examination of skin biopsies, and the study of the causes, or pathogenesis, of skin diseases at the cellular level.
