About this book

Manual of Pathology of the Human Placenta, Second Edition is a concise, practical manual of placental pathology. While references are made to the more encyclopedic Pathology of the Human Placenta, this Manual is designed as a user-friendly, easy-to-read bench manual that can be used in the grossing room as well as at the microscope.

Features of the text include:
- A section on the approach to the placental specimen, providing suggestions on what to do, as well as when and how to do it.
- Discussion of detailed development and normal histology of all parts of the placenta for those wanting to learn about specific areas of the placenta.
- Discussion of placental lesions, disease processes related to the placenta, neoplasms, and trophoblastic lesions.
- An overview of the legal implications of placental examination and future directions.
- "Suggestions for Examination and Report" includes key points in gross examination, sectioning, and diagnosis. Suggestions for comments in the surgical pathology report guide the reader in problematic situations or when the diagnosis or diagnostic implications are unclear.
- An abundance of tables summarize pertinent information and provide easy access to the differential diagnoses of various lesions.

Manual of Pathology of the Human Placenta, Second Edition is a must-have reference for every pathologist, resident and pathology assistant.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This second edition remains true to the goal of the first edition - to be a concise, practical manual of placental pathology. … Written by an expert in placental pathology, this book is diagnostically useful for all practicing pathologists and pathologists in training. … This concise, practical manual of placental pathology is a reasonably priced, beautifully illustrated book which is easy to read and is a relevant placenta reference for all practicing surgical pathologists.” (Maura F. O’Neil, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2011)

“The book is aimed at general pathologists, but there is sufficient information and detail to keep the specialist pathologist happy as well. … The book is well illustrated, with a mix of gross photographs and micrographs, and useful line diagrams demonstrating early placental development, as well as photographic demonstrations of various techniques for examination. … Overall, this is a succinct and practical bench manual, which I would commend to anyone involved in the examination of placentas.” (Caroline Gannon, Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, October, 2011)
