Each concise desktop reference in the Essentials in Cytopathology Series is designed as an easy-to-use and authoritative synopsis of site-specific topics in cytopathology.

Thyroid Cytopathology uses a simple algorithmic approach to the diagnosis of thyroid fine needle aspirations (FNA).

Organized in 11 easy-to-read chapters, this volume discusses the background, diagnostic approaches and criteria, differential diagnoses, and clinical management of inflammatory, colloid, follicular, Hurthle cell and cystic lesions, as well as, papillary, medullary and undifferentiated carcinomas.

With 116 full-color images, 12 tables and a series of algorithms, Thyroid Cytopathology is the ideal quick reference guide covering the essentials of thyroid FNA. It is a must-have for every pathologist, cytopathologist, cytotechnologist, fellow and trainee.
