100 Cases in Clinical Pathology (Paperback)

By (author): Eamon Shamil, Praful Ravi, Ashish Chandra

A 27-year-old Ghanaian woman presents in the emergency department with a three-day history of headache, nausea, and vague lower abdominal pain. She has no significant past medical history, but is eight-weeks pregnant with her first child. She lives in London and returned from a trip to Ghana two weeks ago. You have been assigned her initial assessment...

100 Cases in Clinical Pathology presents 100 clinical scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency department, outpatient clinic, or in general practice in which an understanding of the underlying clinical pathology is central to arriving at the correct diagnosis. A succinct summary of the patient's history, examination, and initial investigations—histopathology, chemical pathology, haematology, microbiology, and clinical immunology as appropriate—is followed by questions on each case, with particular emphasis on the interpretation of the results and the arrival at a clinicopathologic diagnosis. The answer includes a detailed discussion on each topic, providing an essential revision aid as well as a practical guide for students and junior doctors.

Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions, and choosing the best course of action to take as a result, is one of the most important and challenging parts of training to become a doctor. These true-to-life cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important clinical conditions, to request the appropriate pathological investigation and correctly interpret those results, and, as a result, to develop their diagnostic and management skills.

Histology for Pathologists (Hardcover)

By (author): Stacey E Mills

A strong grounding in basic histology is essential for all pathologists. However, there had always been a gap between histology and pathology in which histologic information specifically for the pathologist was often lacking. Histology for Pathologists deals with the microscopic features of normal human tissues, from the perspective of the surgical pathologist. This is the only text that uses human (vs. animal) tissues for the histology. It is the best reference in the literature for information on normal histology, and, as such, is essential for all clinical pathologists. Written by pathologists for pathologists, the new edition will update the pathologist's understanding of normal histology up to date with the incremental advances made in the last five years. The 3rd edition has become a "classic" purchased by virtually all residents beginning their pathology training, as well as pathologists in practice. The 4th edition will build on that substantial foundation.

Needle biopsy is a simple, reliable, inexpensive, well-tolerated, and minimally invasive procedure for the diagnosis of tumors, both in superficial and in deep sites. Today, following the shift to a more conservative approach to tumor treatment, and in this era of "tailored" or "targeted" oncological therapies, the use of needle biopsy in the diagnosis of neoplasia, at all phases of the disease, is expected to increase dramatically. The efficacy of this technique is, however, strongly influenced by the experience of the physician performing the technique and by the pathologist’s ability to interpret the results derived from the minimal cellular harvest. The aim of this volume is to provide all of the information and insight needed to obtain a correct diagnosis based on needle biopsy evaluation. In a problem-oriented approach, the author describes the optimal interventional maneuver and biopsy-sample triage for all types of lesions. The reader is then guided through the interpretation of all possible cytological findings based on a pattern-analysis methodology. The integration of this information with clinical and preanalytical data is the best approach to obtain a correct diagnosis.

Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections (Hardcover)

By (author): Hernani Cualing, Parul Bhargava, Ramon L. Sandin

Most books on hematopathology are neoplastic in scope and offer little non-neoplastic content. In Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections, the authors fully describe the hematologic manifestations in tissue and blood of infectious agents, including many rare and exotic diseases found in both Western and Eastern hemispheres, in order to assist pathologists and medical laboratory professionals all over the world in better diagnosing and treating such infections.

Thoroughly illustrated with photographs, tables and text, this book features a wide range of non-neoplastic hematologic disorders, as well as reactive patterns of non-infectious and infectious agents. Comprehensive and state-of-the-art diagnostic materials are described, as are the epidemiology, pathobiology, clinical and pathologic manifestations in blood and lymphatic organs—as well as the approaches to treatment.

In addition, Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections:

  • Contains detailed information on the pathology and patterns of blood, lymph node, and a number of bone marrow and splenic infections and infectious agent manifestations

  • Thoroughly updates the classic pathology of reactive lymphadenopathies and extends this pattern-based approach to tropical and emergent infections

  • Promotes the multidisciplinary integration of hematopathologists and microbiologists in the analysis and diagnostic work-up of tissue and blood

  • Complements current major treatises on such tropical diseases as Manson's, Ashworth's, and Doerr's and updates the classic tomes of William St. Clair Symmers and current texts on neoplastic hematopathology

Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections is an important book for any medical professional interested in non-neoplastic hematology, infections and tissue hematopathology, infectious diseases and tropical medicine, and tropical hematopathology.
