Atlas of Practical Mohs Histopathology


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Sumaira Z. Aasi, David J. Leffell, Rossitza Z. Lazova

Mohs surgery is microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer and allows for the removal of a skin cancer with a very narrow surgical margin and a high cure rate. However, for those involved with the Mohs procedure, it is critical to understand the optimal preparation and interpretation of frozen sections.

Complete with hundreds of high resolution figures, Atlas of Practical Mohs Histopathology is written by leading experts in the field and discusses everything from normal skin histology and rare tumors to pitfalls and incidental findings. Dermatologic surgeons, Mohs cutaneous surgeons, dermatopathologists and pathologists alike will find this book to be a comprehensive and indispensable reference.

Photographic Regional Atlas of Bone Disease: A Guide to Pathologic and Normal Variations in the Human Skeleton


By (author): Robert W. Mann, David R. Hunt

The Photographic Regional Atlas of Bone Disease is intended to serve the needs of a diverse audience including paleopathologists, physical anthropologists and other anthropologists, police, crime scene technicians, medical examiners, radiologists, anatomists, and other medical specialists, regardless of training or experience. Although originally written as a manual for physical anthropologists, it has become a reference for anyone examining skeletal remains or dealing with bone disease, especially in dry-bone specimens. Over the years it has gained in popularity as one of the few ‘required’ manuals in most skeletal laboratories throughout the U.S. and, in fact, many countries. The purpose of the book is to bridge the gap between clinical medicine, radiology and physical anthropology by providing researchers with a single source and photographic atlas of what they might encounter in one bone or an entire skeletal collection, regardless of antiquity or origin. Unlike most texts written by clinicians for clinicians, or those that focus on one specialty, the Regional Atlas was compiled by biological anthropologists using a ‘dry bones’ approach and simple yet precise terminology, based on examination of nearly 10,000 skeletons. The authors expertise and diversity in anatomy, radiology, pathology and human variation provide them with a unique perspective for distinguishing normal variation from pathological conditions. The book was written as a basic stand-alone reference for bone disease and normal variation. It contains black and white photographs and an extensive use of color plates depicting a variety of disease conditions and stages of progression that one might expect to encounter in one or many skeletons. The purpose of this text is to provide readers with sufficient information on bone disease and human variation for them to recognize, describe and interpret them. Once they have identified a disease, normal variant or other condition, they can turn to the bibliography for references and additional information. The Regional Atlas is intended to provide readers with enough information to do their own skeletal analysis. It is this ‘dry bones’; approach, combined with the vast experiences of the authors, vivid photos and simple terminology, that sets the Regional Atlas apart from all others.

Color Atlas of Pathophysiology


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Stefan Silbernagl, Florian Lang

Books on pathophysiology tend to specialize in a certain field such as endocrine or cardiovascular pathophysiology. This is the only pocket atlas that treats aspects of pathophysiology for all important disorders. The book’s organization gives the reader quick access to the informative texts and the 181 comprehensive and clear color images. Informative images show the causal relationships between disturbances of physiological processes and the resulting malfunction and illness.

This flexi is designed both as a reference both for the student preparing for exams and the trained physician wishing to update his knowledge on pathophysiology.

Pathophysiology of Blood Disorders (Lange Medical Books)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Howard Franklin Bunn, Jon C. Aster

A concise full-color review of the mechanisms of blood diseases and disorders – based on a Harvard Medical School hematology course

2015 Doody’s Core Title!

4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!

“This is a superb book. Deceptively small, yet packs a wallop. The emphasis on principles instead of practice is welcome….The text is clear, concise, and surprisingly approachable for what could have been a very dense and dry discussion. I could not put this book down and read it entirely in one sitting. When was the last time anyone found a hematology textbook so riveting?”–Doody’s Review Service

Hematological Pathophysiology is a well-illustrated, easy-to-absorb introduction to the physiological principles underlying the regulation and function of blood cells and hemostasis, as well as the pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for the development of blood disorders. Featuring a strong emphasis on key principles, the book covers diagnosis and management primarily within a framework of pathogenesis.

Authored by world-renowned clinician/educators at Harvard Medical School, Hematological Pathophysiology features content and organization based on a hematology course offered to second year students at that school. The book is logically divided into four sections: Anemias and Disorders of the Red Blood Cell, Disorders of Hemostasis and Thrombosis, Disorders of Leukocytes, and Transfusion Medicine; it opens with an important overview of blood and hematopoietic tissues.

 

Features

  • Succinct, to-the-point coverage that reflects current medical education
  • More than 200 full-color photographs and renderings of disease mechanisms and blood diseases
  • Each chapter includes learning objectives and self-assessment questions
  • Numerous tables and diagrams encapsulate important information
  • Incorporates the feedback of 180 Harvard medical students who reviewed the first draft — so you know you’re studying the most relevant material possible

Pathology of Testicular and Penile Neoplasms


This user-friendly book is a practical guide to the diagnosis of testicular tumors and rare tumors of the penis. It describes and illustrates pathology findings for each tumor type and provides information on clinical features, differential diagnosis, tumor staging, and prognostic factors. Since an effective dialogue between urologists and pathologists is essential for optimal patient care, due attention is paid to such aspects as the role of frozen section in the management of small testicular nodules and the accurate reporting of testicular and penile neoplasms to ensure that all knowledge required for diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making is available. The key information is presented in straightforward tables for ease of reference. This book, which includes more than 250 full-color photos, is not only a valuable resource for surgical pathologists and pathology residents but also an important reference tool for all clinicians who care for patients with genitourinary tract tumors.

Histophilus somni: Biology, Molecular Basis of Pathogenesis, and Host Immunity (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)


This volume reviews the current understanding of the taxonomy, disease syndromes, genetics, biology, and pathogenic factors of Histophilus somni, as well as the host immune response to this pathogen. H. somni is one of the most important bacterial pathogens in cattle and other ruminants, and its virulence factors are highly conserved with Haemophilus influenzae and other members of the Pasteurellaceae. H. somni has been recognized as a major cause of thrombotic meningoencephalitis, respiratory disease syndromes, myocarditis, reproductive disease syndromes, polyarthritis, mastitis, ocular disease, and septicemia. The only known habitats of H. somni are the mucosal surfaces of ruminants, making this bacterium an opportunistic pathogen. Although it is capable of causing inflammation at systemic sites and is toxic to epithelial and phagocytic cells, the bacterium’s wide array of virulence factors act primarily as a defense against, or to escape recognition from, host innate and adaptive immunity.
