About this Textbook

This book presents clinicopathological insights into common genitourinary diseases, especially those of neoplastic nature, and introduces experiential learning based on case presentations (case-based learning). One of the tasks that trainees face is converting the extensive amount of data into medical experience. Using successive microscopic images, the book gradually and analytically presents diagnostic procedures for the genitourinary system (kidney, urinary bladder, prostate gland and testis). Characteristic cases are presented for each organ, each ending with a clinical commentary and key messages. This form of presentation helps readers acquire the valuable skill of effective diagnostic thinking, focusing their attention on the essential microscopic findings and disregarding insubstantial findings. 

Although clinical applications are frequently based on pathological findings which therefore need to be clearly described and recorded, the importance of this in everyday medical practice is often ignored by medical students and downplayed by clinicians. Demonstrating how knowledge can be practically applied, the book is a valuable resource mainly for residents in pathology, urology and oncology but also for medical students with a special interest in histopathology.

His contribution to medical education was acknowledged with his election as a first rank Professor of Pathology at the Athens National and Kapodistrian University Medical School. His work includes diagnostic pathology practice with a special interest in genitourinary pathology; he has been involved in 300 international and domestic scientific publications with more than 4500 citations in international medical literature.


Reviews

“The 530 pages of ‘Clinical Genitourinary Pathology: a case-based learning approach’ offers a comprehensive and superbly illustrated coverage of the most common diseases in genitourinary pathology pathology. The numerous illustrations have been carefully chosen from the editor’s personal archive to support and ex-tend the information given in the text. I am sure that this book will be the first in a long series of case-based learning volumes in all aspects of surgical pathology.” (European Society of Pathology Newsletter, 2018)
“Pathology, is a constantly evolving medical discipline, with new entities and new molecular data being incorporated in everyday practice. … this book presents with a useful case-based approach all important topics on Genitourinary Pathology. It can be read pleasantly chapter by chapter, for a global view, or as a quick reference during diagnosis. Its inclusion in the Pathology Laboratory library would benefit all: residents, young and senior Pathologists.” (Anna Batistatou, Journal of Surgical and Molecular Pathology, Vol.4 (1), 2018)

“Demonstrating through this innovative approach how knowledge can be practically applied, the book is a valuable resource for residents and novices to the field, not only in pathology but also in urology and oncology. The interested medical student can also benefit from it. It is to be highly recommended among the educational medical  literature helping the development of competent pathologists and clinicians alike.” (Prof. Dr Sven Seiwerth, Head of Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, Croatia)

“With this book, trainees and early-stage Pathologists will learn to recognize the most important histologic features in order to reach the correct diagnosis and provide accurate prognostic information to the clinicians and will gain experience with the most common disease entities of Genitourinary Pathology and their immunohistochemical features. The book may also serve as a reference book for more experienced Pathologists and will help them enhance their educational skills when teaching younger doctors. Urology and Oncology Fellows will also benefit from the book, by understanding the prognostic information included in the Pathology report and their clinical relevance. In summary, this book is an invaluable tool for Pathology education and provides important insights into Pathology for Urology and Oncology Fellows. I strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Genitourinary Pathology.” (Vasiliki Tzelepi, Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology, Medical School, University of Patras, Greece)
