Diagnostic Pathology of Infectious Disease presents a comprehensive, organ-based approach to the effective and accurate diagnosis of infectious diseases. Dr. Richard L. Kradin covers the latest information on H1N1, as well as the use of immunohistochemical stains, PCR, Immunoperoxidase, and other molecular techniques for a current representation of the field. High-quality, full-color illustrations and differential diagnosis tables accompany each lesion so you can quickly identify and diagnose whatever you see. This reference is an invaluable tool for the accurate diagnosis of any infectious disease—from the common to the most challenging.

Covers the latest techniques in immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics integrated throughout the text for comprehensive information on all investigative contexts relevant to ensuring diagnostic accuracy.
Emphasizes the host responses critical in differential diagnosis to serve as a second opinion when non-infectious diagnoses mimic and confound the diagnosis of infection.
Provides a complete visual guide to suspect lesions through superb, high-quality, full-color illustrations of key aspects of various diseases that facilitate the rapid identification of biopsy specimen.
Presents contents organized by organ as opposed to pathogen to more effectively address diagnostic and management issues.
Features tables that list differential diagnosis for each lesion for quick summaries of key points in problem areas.
Highlights morphological characteristics and landmarks of tissue samples throughout the text for easy access to information necessary for signing out specimen.
Focuses on clinicopathologic features and correlations so you can deal with the diagnostic problems you face every day.

Koehler/Zimmer’s Borderlands of Normal and Early Pathological Findings in Skeletal Radiography

 Pathology, Radiology  Comments Off on Koehler/Zimmer’s Borderlands of Normal and Early Pathological Findings in Skeletal Radiography
Jul 062021

Still normal, or already pathologic? Every radiologist, surgeon, and orthopedic surgeon are confronted with this question on a daily basis, indeed it accompanies them for their professional life. For more than 90 years, “Koehler/Zimmer” has been the reference for differentiating borderline findings.Generations of physicians have considered this work indispensable in learning skeletal radiology, and have profited immensely from the unique selection of images.


This standard work in diagnostic radiology is now in it’s 5th edition, and has been completely restructured and expanded to include:

– 4200+ images

– findings between normal and pathologic; in both pediatric and adult patients

– integration of appropriate CT and MR Imaging findings

– completely new didactic concept: structuring of all possible changes in five pathologic categories: dysplasia, trauma, necroses, inflammation, and tumor.


This work will greatly help the radiologist to increase his or her certainty and confidence in describing findings in skeletal radiology, and in arriving at appropriate diagnosis.

MRI Atlas of Pituitary Pathology 1st Edition

 Pathology  Comments Off on MRI Atlas of Pituitary Pathology 1st Edition
Jul 042021

MRI Atlas of Pituitary Imaging focuses on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the imaging modality of choice for the evaluation of pituitary disorders, since it provides a detailed anatomy of the pituitary gland and surrounding structures, particularly the soft tissues. A basic understanding and interpretation of MRI is important for many clinicians outside of the field of radiology, especially endocrinologists who may receive limited formal training in such areas.

This concise Atlas includes a brief review of the principles of magnetic resonance imaging and then reinforces these principles by utilizing a case-based approach to review various pituitary pathologies. The Atlas serves as a strong clinical teaching aid for endocrinologists, radiologists, and neurosurgeons in training. It also serves as a great reference for physicians who are currently in practice.

NETosis: Immunity, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics 1st Edition

 Immunology, Pathology  Comments Off on NETosis: Immunity, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics 1st Edition
Jun 162021

NETosis: Immunity, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics takes a focused approach to the clinical aspects of NETosis and drug development, bringing critical findings. Chapters introduce NETosis, consider mechanisms and antimicrobial strategies regulating NETosis, examine NETosis in neonates, explore the role of NETosis in autoimmunity, delve into NETosis and other diseases, and present therapeutic approaches for dysregulated NETosis. Since Brinkamm, et al, discovered an unrecognized neutrophil anti-microbial mechanism responsible for the extracellular killing of invading pathogens in 2004, the novel process in which nuclear chromatin de-condenses and DNA is ejected into the extra cellular environment, trapping and inactivating tissue pathogens has rapidly evolved.

Presents an up-to-date and detailed analysis of NETosis
Brings together critical findings on NETosis as a comparatively novel immune mechanism
Focuses on the clinical aspects of NETosis that lead to drug development
Covers the topic with a cogency and passion that is based on years of scientific research
