About this book


This second edition of a much praised and widely used reference manual on anatomic pathology has been extensively revised and expanded to cover the entire field of anatomic pathology, including molecular pathology, human genetics, electron microscopy, microbiology for surgical pathologists, transplant pathology, and cytopathology. A distinguished panel of 70+ recognized experts from around the world have incorporated recent advances in molecular pathology, cytology, and immunohistochemistry, adopted the new series of World Health Organization classification books, and used the 2002 TNM staging system and classifications throughout the book. Several new chapters on transplant pathology, the spleen, non-neoplastic skin diseases, the head and neck, the eye and ocular adnexa, the vulva and vagina, and the penis and scrotum significantly expand the book's coverage. The 2000+ new black-and-white images added to the text are also available in full color on a companion CD-ROM packaged with each book. The comprehensive, evidence-based practice information is presented in an outline format that is clear and easy to follow. A full text version of the book, including the color images, is available on CD-ROM and sold separately (ISBN 1-59259-926-5).
Up-to-date and richly detailed, Essentials of Anatomic Pathology, Second Edition offers both the pathologist-in-training and the practicing pathologist a concise summary of all the critical information needed to recognize, understand, and interpret anatomic pathology.
