Abstract :

Unfortunately, the cytopathology exam of the skin is not practiced by physicians in general dermatology. To take a fragment of the skin is very easy technique by cutaneous biopsy. In 1947, Dr. Tzanck in France had introduced the study of cutaneous cytology by publishing the view of pemphigus cells. Cutaneous cytology is an excellent, practical and cheap diagnosis method. We can take a correct diagnosis in few minutes. It is a complementary test comparing with histopathology test. Many cutaneous diseases can be diagnosed quickly by this exam with high accuracy. In 1960 in Brazil, Dr. Estevam Almeida Neto was a pioneer at Sao Paulo University, Department of Dermatology when he published a thesis on Leprosy Cytology during his doctorate course. While I was doing my Residence in Dermatology at Sao Paulo University, Dr. Estevam Almeida Neto had taught me Cutaneous Cytology and the process to take sample slides for examination. In my speech, I intend to show the importance of this exam and my experience for many years.
