The Frozen Section Library series provides concise, user-friendly, site specific handbooks that are well illustrated and highlight the pitfalls, artifacts and differential diagnosis issues that arise in the hurried frozen section scenario.

Written by expert surgical pathologists, Frozen Section Library: Endocrine Organs presents common and practical problems including follicular adenoma versus follicular carcinoma, papillary thyroid carcinoma versus reactive change and freezing artifact, follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma, and medullary thyroid carcinoma. Anaplastic carcinoma, thyroid lymphoma, resection margin of a pancreatic endocrine tumor,  pheochromocytoma within an adrenal gland and extra- adrenal gland, parathyroid tissue versus a thyroid tissue and versus a lymph node are also explored in detail. All chapters are illustrated with color pictures and accompanied legends.

As a handbook for practicing pathologists, this volume is an indispensable aid to diagnosis and for avoiding dangers in one of the most challenging situations that pathologists encounter.  Rapid consideration of differential diagnoses and how to avoid traps caused by frozen section artifacts are readily accessible. Tables and charts provide guidance for differential diagnosis of various histological patterns. Frozen Section Library: Endocrine Organs is a highly valuable guide for practicing surgical pathologists, both community and academic, and to pathology residents and fellows.

The second edition of this book has been extensively revised and updated. There has been a lot of scientific advances in the radiology, pathology and risk assessment of benign breast lesions since the publication of the first edition. The first edition concentrated on screen-detected lesions, which has been rectified. New symptomatic and screen-detected lesions are discussed in the second edition and include: mastitis and breast abscess, idiopathic granulomatous mastitis, diabetic mastopathy, phyllodes tumour, gynaecomastia and pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia. The chapters on columnar cell lesions and mucocele-like lesions have been extensively updated. Where applicable, genetic analysis of the benign lesions which in breast cancer is becoming part of personalised medicine has been included. The book includes detailed analysis of the main models such as the Gail Model used to assess the subsequent risk of breast cancer in individuals. The current trend in the management of all cancers is preventative. Screening mammography detects early curable cancers as well as indeterminate lesions. These indeterminate mammographic lesions are invariably pathologically benign. The author collated important benign lesions and based on peer-reviewed publications documented the relative risk of subsequent cancer to allow the patient and the clinician to institute preventative measures where possible. This book therefore will be an essential part of multidisciplinary management of patients with symptomatic and screen-detected benign breast lesions.

A myriad of different scenarios await those entering the field of forensic pathology, ranging from gunshot wounds to asphyxiation to explosives to death from addiction. Essential Forensic Pathology: Core Studies and Exercises helps prepare pathologists in training by establishing what they must know about the most common death scenes they will encounter.

The book begins by discussing the coaching objectives in medical education and follows with a description of the 15 different rotations of the forensic pathology resident. Using a consistent and concise format, the book describes the facility where the rotation takes place, the necessary skills, the laboratory equipment, and other components of the rotation.

The main portion of the book presents forensic pathology essentials in the form of learning objectives—each delineated with a code: "M" for items students must know, and "S" for those they must do. This section begins by discussing the government’s role, describes medical examiner and coroner systems, and analyzes the academic discipline of forensic pathology. Next, the book focuses on hands-on elements of forensic pathology, with chapters on scene investigation, identification, and postmortem changes (signs of death). Objectives are also presented for various causes of death, including gunshot wounds, stab wounds, asphyxiation, sex-related death, and death from addiction. Additional chapters cover bombs and explosive devices, mental disease, epidemics, and issues related to forensic entomology.

Each chapter contains a list of pertinent vocabulary and references for further study. By mastering the objectives contained in each chapter of this manual, forensic pathology students will be ready to pass certification exams and work confidently in the field.

First published in 1924, Muir's Textbook of Pathology has set a standard in this subject by linking the scientific aspects that underlie pathological processes, relating these to pathological changes specific to the various organ systems, and placing it all in context for students of clinical medicine and surgery. Subsequent editions have retained this popular approach, while introducing novel concepts and taking into account the evolution in the teaching of general pathology that has occurred.

This fully-revised fourteenth edition maintains its clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure and includes new photographs and explanatory line diagrams, all in full color. It also retains its applicability to both systems-based and problem-based undergraduate courses. Focusing on core material presented in sufficient detail, this book is a key text for students and has significant appeal for pathology trainees.

Divided into two main sections, the text opens with a series of introductory chapters on the mechanisms of general pathology before progressing to a discussion of pathology in relation to specific body systems. The emphasis on the clinical application of pathology is enhanced in this new edition through the use of clinical case studies that relate pathological mechanisms to patients, problems, and prognoses. Useful directions for further inquiry are suggested by the special study topics that appear in each chapter, while other reader-friendly aids enhance the value of the text during exam preparation.

Medical students new to the topic and postgraduates looking for a ready reference to the subject will find the 14th edition of Muir's Textbook of Pathology an invaluable tool during study and in clinical practice.

Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast (Biopsy Interpretation Series) (Hardcover)

By (author): Stuart J Schnitt, Dr. Laura C. Collins MD

A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this new edition of Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to that in which they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped together according to their histologic patterns rather than by the traditional benign-malignant categorization in order to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides on a daily basis. The role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems in breast pathology is emphasized where appropriate.
In addition, the clinical significance and impact on patient management of the various diagnoses are discussed and key clinical and management points highlighted.
 
Features include:
·          Lesions grouped by histologic patterns to simulate real-world experience
·          Many sections updated to reflect the most recent advances in the field
·          More than 550 color images, including over 100 new images, highlight key pathologic features and streamline visual diagnosis
·          Bulleted tables summarize key diagnostic features of various lesions
·          A concise, convenient format that serves as a practical reference and diagnostic guide for pathologists
 
 
Included with the companion web site:
·          Fully searchable text
·          More than 300 full-color images
·          Test bank that is ideal for board exam preparation
