  • Thoroughly updated and expanded
  • New section on biomechanics
  • Both a bench-side companion and ready reference
Bone Pathology is the second edition of the book, A Compendium of Skeletal Pathology that published 10 years ago. Similar to the prior edition, this book complements standard pathology texts and blends new but relatively established information on the molecular biology of the bone.  Serving as a bench-side companion to the surgical pathologist, this new edition reflects new advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of bone.  New chapters on soft-tissue sarcomas and soft-tissue tumors have been added as well as several additional chapters such as soft-tissue pathology and Biomechanics.  The  volume  is written by experts who are established in the field of musculoskeletal diseases.  Bone Pathology is a combined effort from authors of different specialties including surgeons, pathologists, radiologists and basic scientists all of whom have in common an interest in bone diseases. It will be of great value to surgical pathology residents as well as practicing pathologists, skeletal radiologists, orthopedic surgeons and medical students.
