About this book

This text provides a comprehensive review of the most frequently encountered diagnostic pitfalls in thyroid cytopathology. Written in a case study format, the text provides the most current and complete information on both non-neoplastic and neoplastic thyroid conditions.  Each chapter focuses on a specific diagnostic challenge and/or pitfalls that help in the differential diagnosis as well as the judicious use of ancillary studies when necessary. A review of the current literature as it relates to each disease entity is also incorporated into respective chapters. Highly illustrated with ample illustration of microscopic features to tackle common and uncommon diagnostic challenge in everyday routine practice. This book provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the common cytologic features needed to resolve the diagnostic pitfalls.

Common Diagnostic Pitfalls in Thyroid Cytopathology serve as a very useful resource for pathologists and physicians dealing with, and interested in the thyroid.

Reviews

“Common Diagnostic Pitfalls in Thyroid Cytopathology is ideal for a range of interests giving good examples of clinical history with pertinent clinical/testing points for general clinicians and pathologists for correlation with cytologic findings. The book lends itself to the interest of a broad range of scholars (such as medical students, medical technologists, residents, cytology fellows or general/specialty practitioners) that are seeking a quick, easy introduction to thyroid cytopathology and its associated everyday nuances.” (Elizabeth M. Kurian, The ASC Bulletin, Vol. 54 (4), July, 2017)
