Pediatric tumors comprise a unique set of diseases that may pose diagnostic challenges to pathologists, oncologists, and pediatricians. Pediatric Tumor Pathology: A Practical Approach serves as a state-of-the-art reference for understanding the fundamental biology and diagnostic aspects of pediatric tumors. This volume stands apart from other books covering pediatric neoplasia by providing an in-depth analysis of the pathogenetic and diagnostic aspects of the most commonly encountered tumors. The volume covers the new advances in our understanding of the molecular processes underlying a number of pediatric tumors and the novel, sophisticated diagnostic tools that have now become an integral part of practice standards. Pediatric Tumor Pathology: A Practical Approach will be of great value for many practicing clinicians and pathologists for characterizing and diagnosing childhood tumors. Oncologists, radiologists, surgeons and pediatricians will also find this book a unique and valuable resource for understanding the biological and diagnostic aspects of pediatric tumor pathology.
This book offers a practical approach to the histologic analysis of a wide range of melanocytic skin lesions, including various nevi and different forms of melanoma, as well as pigmented non-melanocytic lesions. In addition, sentinel node biopsy findings and the use of special ancillary studies are covered in detail. Each chapter presents illustrative cases that document the route to correct diagnosis. An important feature of the book is the clinical-pathologic correlation of challenging melanocytic tumors; accordingly, it will appeal not only to pathologists (general surgical pathologists and dermatopathologists) but also to dermatologists (including dermatopathologists). The book contains some 250 color photos as well as tables and algorithms designed to assist in the diagnosis of difficult cases.?
This handbook addresses the need for a straightforward reference for managing a hemostasis laboratory and coordinating testing across multiple locations and technologies. The handbook format allows quick reference to specific topics and is useful for answering specific questions or for Board exam review. The full spectrum of coagulation testing, basics of methodology and instrumentation, and the responsibilities of the laboratory director are covered.

For three editions, Rosen’s Breast Pathology has been widely recognized as the “gold standard” reference. Now in its Fourth Edition, this classic text continues its legacy of being the leading reference work on the pathology of the breast.
Precise pathological diagnosis of breast disease is the most critical factor in determining treatment and establishing prognosis. The Fourth Edition of Rosen’s Breast Pathology provides the most comprehensive, updated information on diseases of the breast. Intended primarily for pathologists, the book will be an indispensible reference for all surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, as well as other physicians and medical personnel who require a thorough knowledge of breast pathology to provide optimal care for their patients.
Discussions of most disease entities include clinical and radiological presentation, epidemiology, gross pathology, microscopic pathology, treatment, and prognosis. Surgical and oncological aspects of the various diseases are addressed wherever appropriate. Numerous images, a large proportion of which are new, complement the encyclopedic descriptions of the surgical pathology and cytology of diseases of the breast.
More than 1,900 full color images highlight key diagnostic features, including hundreds of new illustrations.
Thoroughly updated and revised chapters from renowned experts in the field, drawn from four leading medical centers in the United States, all edited by Dr. Paul P. Rosen.
Emphasis on histopathological features of breast diseases.
The latest advances in immunohistochemical, pathobiological and molecular aspects of benign and malignant breast diseases.
Recommendations for appropriate management of specific breast diseases.
New chapter on molecular aspects of breast diseases.
The role of pathology in the multidisciplinary management of breast diseases is stressed.
