Atlas of Lymph Node Pathology (Atlas of Anatomic Pathology)

By (author): Roberto N. Miranda, Joseph D. Khoury, L. Jeffrey Medeiros

Atlas of Lymph Node Pathology reviews the histopathology of nodal diseases, illustrating the use of ancillary studies and includes concise discussions of pathogenesis, clinical settings and clinical significance of the pathologic diagnosis. The atlas features an overview of the benign reactive processes secondary to infectious, environmental or unknown insults, as well as relevant illustrations of virtually all primary and secondary neoplasms involving lymph nodes. The atlas also includes macroscopic images of some disorders, tables that help readers understand and comprehend diseases that look alike, and diagnostic algorithms for certain groups of diseases.

Authored by highly experienced pathologists, Atlas of Lymph Node Pathology is a valuable resource that illustrates the vast majority of diseases practicing pathologists, clinicians and oncologists are likely to encounter in daily practice.

Colorectal Tumors: Atlas of Large Section Histopathology

By (author): Tibor Tot

Large-section histopathology widens your perspectives…

Correct diagnosis and staging are essential in determining the appropriate
therapy of colorectal carcinoma, one of the most common malignancies in America
and Europe. As medical science continues to develop rapidly, histopathology
remains an essential part of diagnosis in most malignant diseases. In this era
of interdisciplinary medicine, the role of pathology has expanded to provide
images that easily correlate with endoscopic, radiological, or operative

In this remarkable atlas, Tibor Tot presents colon pathology in large
histological sections, with cross-sections of entire tumors in their anatomic
environments and their circumferential surgical margins. These unique images
form a guide to diagnosis, tumor typing and staging according to TNM criteria.
They help to assess the completeness of a surgical excision and to understand
the heterogeneity of colorectal carcinomas.


  • Cases illustrated in two-page spreads with clinical
    information, conventional histopathology, and large-section histology images
    enlarged to almost a full page.
  • Pathology seen in the context of surrounding tissues

  • The margins of malignant tumors visible in their
  • Schematic guides to interpretation of the
    large-section images
  • Emphasis on diagnostic advantages of using large
    section technique
  • Technical guidelines for obtaining large-section histopathology specimens

This atlas is the result of seven years of studying almost 2,000 cases of colorectal
carcinoma and other intestinal lesions and is highly recommended for
pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, and oncologists alike.

Following on the favorable reception of the first edition, the authors have thoroughly revised and updated the second edition of this resourceful clinical handbook. The book has been well received internationally by a wide audience of clinicians, including general dentists, oral surgeons, otolaryngologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, dental hygienists, physician assistants, and dermatologists, and sales have been strong among students and post-graduate residents training in medical, dental, and allied health fields, supporting the versatility of this work and serving as testimony to its value in both the academic and private practice arenas.   Several key updates and improvements have been made to the second edition. All informational content has been updated to ensure accuracy and relevance, particularly in the rapidly evolving fields of oncology and pharmacology. A new chapter has been added entitled “Oral Sequelae of Cancer and Cancer Therapy” which better organizes and consolidates previous content while expanding on topics such as targeted therapies and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Additional clinical images have been included throughout the book so that the full clinical spectrum of any given condition is well-represented. Furthermore, the print quality, as well as the positioning and layout of the clinical images has been improved for optimal utility. Lastly, the summary boxes that follow each condition have been reconfigured with color-coded icons for improved definition, ease of use and cross-referencing.

Emerging and Evolving Topics in Multiple Sclerosis Pathogenesis and Treatments (Current Topics in Behavioral Neurosciences)

Over the past decade, we have made great advances in the field of multiple sclerosis (MS) research, and this book focuses on those advances in MS pathogenesis and treatment. While some of these advances have been through new approaches and ideas that have emerged in the last decade such as the newly identified protective role that amyloid proteins may play in MS or the use of helminths to treat autoimmune diseases, others have evolved from previous theories and ideas that have only now gained momentum and a deeper understanding such as the role of HLA or gender in MS susceptibility. This book covers these emerging and evolving topics and highlights the substantial advancements made in elucidation of the factors regulating susceptibility or disease progression, identification of new ways to monitor or predict MS pathology, and development of new strategies for treating MS.

Immunopathology in Toxicology and Drug Development: Volume 1, Immunobiology, Investigative Techniques, and Special Studies (Molecular and Integrative Toxicology)

This book provides a fundamental understanding of immunopathology and immunopathologic processes, with particular attention to nonclinical toxicology studies. Chapters provide an overview of general immunobiology, cells of the immune system, signaling and effector molecules, and immunopathology assays. A companion volume, Immunopathology in Toxicology and Drug Development: Volume 2, Organ Systems, offers summaries of organ-specific immunobiology and immunopathology as well as common responses to xenobiotics.

These informative and strategic books were created in response to the large segment of drug development that focuses on chronic diseases, many of which involve alterations to the immune system. Therapies that target these diseases commonly involve some form of immunomodulation. As a result, the two volumes of Immunopathology in Toxicology and Drug Development are critical texts for individuals involved in diverse aspects of drug development. Readers will acquire a thorough understanding of immunopathology for detection and accurate interpretation of pathologic effects of xenobiotics on the immune system.
