    ABSTRACT: A large number of congenital/nevoid and acquired skin diseases on the human skin and mucosae assume a characteristic morphological pattern following the Blaschko lines. This pattern recognition is important for dermatologists so as to have an idea about the etiopathogenesis as well as to categorize various such disorders. This article is an attempt to overview and classify a variety of blaschkoid disorders described so far in the literature.

    ABSTRACT: Mosaicism is a powerful biologic concept, originally developed from studying plants and animals. All cutaneous neoplasms, both benign and malignant, reflect mosaicism, which is the necessary basis to explain numerous human skin disorders. For example, various mosaic patterns visualize the embryonic development of human skin and X-linked skin disorders explain why women live longer than men, and so on. This book presents, for the first time, a comprehensive overview on the strikingly manifold patterns and peculiarities of mosaic skin disorders. This reader-friendly structured and straightforward publication will help the dermatologist to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms of skin disorders in order to further improve the treatment outcome. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
