Skin cytology is invaluable for managing skin case effectively, and is the single most helpful tool in dermatology. Tips will be provided for optimising collection and processing techniques for common tests relevant to general practice, including adhesive tape and glass slide impressions, scrapings and squeeze tape impressions, wet preps, trichograms, and fine needle aspirates.
