About this book


During the past decade the ability of surgical pathologists to reach a definitive diagnosis has been greatly enhanced-but also complicated-by the availability of many new markers and innovative immuno- histochemical techniques. In Essentials of Anatomic Pathology, a distinguished panel of experts concisely reviews these diagnostic advances in classic pathology to produce a readily accessible guide that helps the practicing pathologist achieve accurate everyday diagnoses. Arranging the important diagnostic features of the most common diseases and tumors by bodily organ, the book provides for each disease the pertinent clinical information, its salient diagnostic features, relevant ancillary data (e.g., immunohistochemical profiles), the main differential diagnoses, and the latest tumor staging information, thus ensuring easy access to all the information essential for case sign-out. Additional chapters afford background reviews of the fundamentals of general anatomic pathology, including diagnostic molecular pathology, diagnostic electron microscopy, human genetic disorders, forensic pathology, cytopathology, and microbiology for surgical pathologists.
Authoritative and richly detailed, Essentials of Anatomic Pathology concisely summarizes all the critical information every pathologist needs today to recognize, understand, and accurately interpret both gross and light microscopic findings in anatomic pathology specimens.
