This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the soft tissues and bones. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of lesions that are considered benign neoplasms but may mimic malignant tumors. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms (and benign neoplasms with sarcomas) are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.
More than 300 color images and this analysis of neoplastic and malignant mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of entities described are uncommon, Neoplastic Mimics in Soft Tissue and Bone Pathology emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees soft tissue and bone cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.
Neoplastic Mimics in Soft Tissue and Bone Pathology features:Over 300 high-quality images showing the full range of neoplastic and malignant mimics in soft tissue and bone specimens Concise, specific text descriptions make the book easy to use as a visual reference Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens
The Practice of Surgical Pathology: A Beginner’s Guide to the Diagnostic Process lays the foundation of practical pathology and provides a scaffold on which to build a knowledge base. It includes basic introductory material and progresses through each organ system. Within each chapter, there is a brief review of salient normal histology, a discussion of typical specimen types, a strategic approach to the specimen with a list of what to look for, and a discussion of how the multitude of different diagnoses relate to each other.
This book offers generous coverage of epidemiology, clinical features, radiology, pathology, differential diagnosis and treatment, not only for common lesions, but also those less frequently encountered. Clues in the images and histopathology needed to arrive at a sharp differential diagnosis are discussed. The content is arranged based on the World Health Organization’s Consensus Classification, with the addition of other lesions not included therein.
Tumors and Tumor-Like Lesions of Bone is aimed at general and specialised surgical pathologists, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and oncologists, in practice and in training.
The authors are expert educators in surgical and cytopathology and experienced diagnosticians in the complexities of soft tissue and bone pathology. This richly illustrated and concise reference will be a practical and indispensible tool for general pathologists and pathologists in training, who are required to diagnose bone and soft tissue pathologies. It is also an excellent resource for physicians seeking a quick survey of sarcoma.Key Features:Offers a practical, pattern-oriented diagnostic approach that mirrors the working method used in daily practiceAugments histologic photographs with illustrations of imaging findings, cytology, and molecular and cytogenetic informationAuthored by recognized expert diagnosticians and teachers in the field
