Atlas of Pulmonary Cytopathology: With Histopathologic Correlations offers concrete diagnostic guidance for anatomic pathologists to accurately identify pulmonary disease using exfoliative and fine needle aspiration techniques. It not only illustrates the classic cytomorphology of common lung lesions, but also presents and contrasts important problem areas that can lead to erroneous interpretation. Clearly and concisely written by leaders in the field, this volume is a practical desk reference for all facets of the diagnostically challenging areas of pulmonary cytopathology.

The Atlas features more than 500 carefully selected high-resolution images detailing important aspects of the full range of lung diseases and conditions including infections, reactive lesions, benign neoplasms, and malignant tumors such as adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, neuroendocrine tumors, malignant mesothelioma, and metastatic tumors. Additionally, the book contains images of the histopathology and gross characteristics of certain lesions to provide morphologic correlations that will be relevant to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike. To provide a broader, more enriching perspective, the Atlas features a special chapter on the radiologic characteristics of lung lesions to provide a differential diagnosis through the eyes of an experienced radiologist. This multidisciplinary approach to enhance the reader’s understanding of how cytopathology, histopathology, and radiologic information together create a powerful tool for understanding the neoplastic, reactive, and infectious disease of the lower respiratory tract.

Key Features:

Provides practical, expert diagnostic guidance for the full range of pulmonary cytopathologyDiscusses common diagnostic pitfalls and interpretive errors encountered in respiratory tract specimensCorrelates cytologic features with those seen on histologyPresents more than 500 high-resolution imagesIncludes radiologic-pathologic correlations from an expert radiologist
Atlas of Exfoliative Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is a comprehensive reference for interpreting body cavity fluid, respiratory, and gastrointestinal exfoliative cytopathology specimens. Generously illustrated and user-friendly, this Atlas guides the reader through common and unusual non-gynecologic and non-urinary exfoliative specimens to detect neoplastic and non-neoplastic disease.

Over 500 high-resolution color images demonstrate the important cytomorphological features and pitfalls encountered in exfoliative specimens. The book provides detailed descriptions for entities encompassing variations of benign serous lesions, peritoneal, pericardial and pleural fluids, cerebrospinal fluid, bronchial brushings and washings, normal and induced sputum, gastric exfoliative specimens, and anal Pap tests. Additionally, selected images demonstrating histopathologic characteristics of the lesions for morphologic correlation will appeal to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike. Written by experts from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Atlas of Exfoliative Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is an invaluable resource for any pathologist looking to improve diagnostic skills and patient outcomes using various exfoliative techniques.

Key Features:

Contains over 500 outstanding color illustrationsIncludes cytologic variations of effusions, brushings, washings, and smears from non-gynecologic and non-urinary sites.Provides clear descriptions of entities and practical diagnostic guidance
Clinical and radiologic examinations cannot reliably distinguish benign or inflammatory pancreatic disease from carcinoma. The increased use of pancreatic fine needle aspiration (FNA) along with advances in imaging techniques and the introduction of endoscopic ultrasound guidance have led to significantly better detection and recognition of pancreatic masses. Consequently, pancreatic cytopathology is integral to accurate pre-operative diagnosis yet it is a challenging diagnostic area with a variety of potential pitfalls and "look-alike" lesions. Skillful recognition and an awareness of the limitations of the procedure are essential in avoiding misdiagnosis of these dangerous lesions.

Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations fills a void in current pathology literature. With 450 high-resolution images, including images of histopathologic and radiologic features, this practical atlas presents an integrated approach to diagnostic cytopathology that will help physician cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, and pathologists avoid potential pitfalls and "look-alike" lesions. Written by recognized experts in the field, the extensive high-resolution color images of the characteristic features of pancreatic disease are presented with detailed descriptions that cover classic features, diagnostic clues, and potential pitfalls.

Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is a valuable resource for the seasoned cytopathologist, general and surgical pathologists, pathology trainees, and cytotechnologists.

This Atlas offers concrete diagnostic guidance for anatomic pathologists to accurately identify gynecologic tract disease using PAP tests. It not only illustrates the cytomorphology of cervical specimens, but also presents and contrasts common problem areas that can lead to erroneous interpretation. Clearly and concisely written by leaders in the field, this volume is a practical desk reference for all facets of the diagnostically challenging area of gynecological tract exfoliative cytopathology.

The Atlas features nearly 500 carefully selected high-resolution color images detailing important aspects of gynecologic tract disease. Additionally, the bookís images of the histopathology and gross characteristics of lesions provide morphologic correlations that will be relevant to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike. To provide a broader, more enriching perspective, the Atlas features a special chapter on the colposcopic characteristics of cervical lesions to provide a differential diagnosis through the eyes of an experienced gynecologist. It also reviews the updated management guidelines of the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP), providing a multidisciplinary approach to enhance the readerís understanding of how cytopathology, histopathology, and colposcopic information together create a powerful tool for the prevention and early detection of cervical dysplasia and cancer.

Key Features:

Provides practical, expert diagnostic guidance for the full range of gynecologic cytopathology Illuminates common diagnostic pitfalls Presents nearly 500 high-resolution color images Includes colposcopic-pathologic correlations from an expert gynecologist Reviews updated ASCCP guidelines emphasizing a multidisciplinary management approach
