About this book

The book covers all relevant topics of uropathology (tumoral and non-tumoral), from the normal histology of the genitourinary tract to pathological findings of diseases in the male genital and urinary tract. To make the content more accessible, all content is arranged alphabetically and each entry is uniformly structured, presenting the epidemiology, the clinical signs, the gross and histological features, the immunohistochemical stainings, and the molecular data for each disease. Histological pictures clarify the microscopic findings and help readers understand the differential diagnosis for genitourinary tract diseases.

In addition to internationally respected experts on pathologies of the prostate, bladder, kidney and testis, researchers coming from other disciplines such as molecular biologists, soft tissue pathologists, dermatopathologists, hematopathologists and gynaecopathologists have contributed to this book, thus making it interesting for uropathologists, but also for students, residents, clinicians (surgeons, radiotherapists, oncologists, urologists, dermatologists) and researchers who deal with disciplines that call for knowledge of the pathologies of the male genital and urinary tracts.

Since 2013, she has served on the Scientific Committee of the European Congresses of Pathology, helping to plan all gynaecopathology sessions and courses. She serves as a reviewer for 25 peer-reviewed journals, and has published more than 150 scientific papers and chapters in textbooks in the field of gynaecological and genitourinary pathology. In addition she is co-editor of the following textbooks: “Gynecologic and Urologic Pathology. Similarities, Differences and Challenges” with Antonio Lopez-Beltran for Cambridge University Press, UK (2017) and “Pathology of the Prostate: An algorithmic approach” with Antonio Lopez-Beltran, Liang Cheng, and Rodolfo Montironi for Cambridge University Press, UK (2017). Antonio Lopez-Beltran is a Professor of Anatomic Pathology and Director of the Service of Anatomic Pathology at the Champalimaud Clinical Center, in Lisbon, Portugal and a Full Professor of Anatomic Pathology at Cordoba University Medical School, Cordoba, Spain (since 2007). Prior to this, he was Director of Anatomic Pathology for Althia Health in Barcelona and Full Professor of Anatomic Pathology at the University of Cordoba, Spain. He spent 27 years at the University of Cordoba, Spain creating The Uro-Onclogy Research Lab. Professor Lopez-Beltran has authored or co-authored nearly 500 scientific papers (mostly on Uropathology and Urooncology) and contributed to several books on the WHO classification of urologic tumors (2004 WHO classification; 2016 WHO classification).
