The history of dermatopathology is closely linked to the invention of the microscope, that allowed to explore an unknown world, and led to many discoveries, not only in dermatology but in all fields of medicine. Galileo Galilei, Robert Hooke, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and Marcello Malpighi are just some of the many scientists who contributed to the birth of dermatopathology. More recently, A. Bernard Ackerman (1936-2008), eclectic scholar of modern dermatopathology, interpreted in an innovative and personal way the classification of inflammatory dermatological diseases (“pattern analysis”) and fought against the decline of medical dermatology and dermatopathology.
