About this book

This book provides a comprehensive resource on the pathology of the human singleton placenta. Agreed nomenclature, nosology, definitions and, where possible, thresholds for meaningful clinical corrections for lesions ideal for practical application in clinical practice are presented. Evidence is also featured on relevant potential clinical correlations to aid the reader in deciding upon the most appropriate management strategy. Areas of current uncertainty are also covered for potential future research.

Pathology of the Placenta systematically describes placental pathology, and represents a valuable resource for practising and trainee pathologists, obstetricians, neonatologists and epidemiologists.

Reviews

“This book is intended as a resource for practicing anatomic pathologists in a community or academic hospital setting. As the book provides significant correlation between macroscopic and microscopic findings, it is excellent for pathology residents and/or fellows who may both gross and microscopically evaluate a placental specimen. Additionally, it may serve as an additional reference for clinical obstetricians or pediatricians specializing in neonatology.” (Lauren Stanoszek, Doody's Book Reviews, July 26, 2019)
