Abstract

Skin biopsy remains one of the most important tools in the evaluation of dermatologic disease in hospitalized patients and is diagnostic for many common inpatient dermatoses, including various drug eruptions and cutaneous infections. The dermatopathology team thus plays a crucial role in the care of many of these patients and can add significant value through timely and precise diagnoses. Here, we review the unique challenges of dermatopathology in hospital-based medicine, discuss approaches to timely care, and examine effective clinicopathologic correlation in this setting.
