Reviews

“The purpose is to provide a systematic overview of head and neck pathology in an encyclopedic fashion and to supplement the medical literature with a reference work. … Although written primarily for general pathologists, this will also be useful for pathology residents and fellows in head and neck pathology. … this volume will find its place in the expanding arena of pathology books, as it is a valuable contribution to the field.” (Anamarija M. Perry, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2016)
