About this book


This fifth edition of a successful book provides an overview of fetal and perinatal pathology, concentrating on common problems, especially where the anatomical pathology findings guide the direction of further investigations.

A new feature of this edition is an emphasis on the molecular aspects of pathology in the perinatal setting. There are four new chapters, including one on the genetic and epigenetic basis of development and disease, and over 300 new illustrations. The format of the book remains the same as previous editions with the first half covering general areas in perinatal pathology. The second half is based on organ systems and covers specific pathological entities, now including discussion of the relevant molecular pathology. There is extensive cross-referencing between chapters.

Keeling’s Fetal and Neonatal Pathology, 5th edition is aimed at the practising pathologist who is called upon to provide a perinatal pathology service. It is also a valuable resource for the pathology trainee and a reference for obstetricians, maternal and fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, paediatricians and forensic pathologists.
