About this book

During the past decade the ability of surgical pathologists to reach a definitive diagnosis has been greatly enhanced-but also complicated-by the availability of many new markers and innovative immuno- histochemical techniques. In Essentials of Anatomic Pathology, a distinguished panel of experts concisely reviews these diagnostic advances in classic pathology to produce a readily accessible guide that helps the practicing pathologist achieve accurate everyday diagnoses. Arranging the important diagnostic features of the most common diseases and tumors by bodily organ, the book provides for each disease the pertinent clinical information, its salient diagnostic features, relevant ancillary data (e.g., immunohistochemical profiles), the main differential diagnoses, and the latest tumor staging information, thus ensuring easy access to all the information essential for case sign-out. Additional chapters afford background reviews of the fundamentals of general anatomic pathology, including diagnostic molecular pathology, diagnostic electron microscopy, human genetic disorders, forensic pathology, cytopathology, and microbiology for surgical pathologists.
Authoritative and richly detailed, Essentials of Anatomic Pathology concisely summarizes all the critical information every pathologist needs today to recognize, understand, and accurately interpret both gross and light microscopic findings in anatomic pathology specimens.

Reviews

"The book covers the entire general and organ system pathology. In the first part it also covers topics like molecular biology diagnostic techniques, human genetic disorders, microbiology for the surgical pathologist, diagnostic electron microscopy, forensic pathology and cytopathology. In the second part, the book covers the specific diseases that affect each organ system. The important things are emphasized and are easily found. Histopathologic findings are supplemented with ancillary data providing, in one place, truly comprehensive coverage of each pathologic entity. . .This is a very good outline of pathology that will be used by residents preparing for the specialty boards. It is up to date, comprehensive, and well done." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"This book is concisely written heady-duty manual with a broad and extensive spectrum, covering all aspects of Anatomical Pathology and (surprisingly!) including Forensic Pathology...quick reference manual with comprehensive coverage of all aspects of Anatomical Pathology combined with a simple layout. To the trainee this therefore is an invaluable and indispensable aid for last minute panic induced study. Practicing pathologists will find it useful when navigating unfamiliar or long-forgotten waters after years of sub-specialisation....The book is laid out in two parts and follows the traditional tried-and-tested pattern of pathology teaching: General Pathology followed by Systemic Pathology...The chapter on Breast Pathology is a work of art....At the end of each chapter the authors provide a helpful list of suggested reading. This is a helpful inclusion....Priced at $99.00 for the paperback version the book is good value for money and should be affordable. Big departments of pathology with a number of trainees should invest in the hardback version." - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine

"The present book is presented in a user-friendly format and will rarely gather dust on the shelves of a pathologist...it can be recommend not only to practicing pathologists, but also to pathologists in training, to medical students and to physician's from other specializations that have a special interest in surgical pathology." -Annals of Anatomy

"The present book is presented in a user-friendly format and will rarely gather dust on the shelves of a pathologist." -Annals of Anatomy

"This book has many great qualities: it is written by an impressive panel of authoritative experts; it is concise yet complete; it is well structured, practical, and easy to consult...Essentials of Anatomic Pathology achieves the challenging task of incorporating information on new ancillary tools in a general reference on anatomic pathology and at the same time rendering it in a readily accessible format without sacrificing substance. For practicing surgical pathologists, it is an up-to-date practical source of information for daily sign-out." -The American Journal of Surgical Pathology
