Overview

Biopsy Interpretation of the Bladder, Second Edition presents state-of-the-art, practical information that is required to evaluate biopsies of the urothelial tract. From normal anatomy and histology to a range of both common and unusual pathological findings, this diagnostic resource delivers current information to help accurately identify all lesions, tumors, and tumor-like lesions for the bladder. Highlights of this edition include full-color illustrations throughout, a new chapter on urine cytology, increased emphasis on differential diagnosis, more tables with immunohistochemistry panels, and the latest World Health Organization and International Society of Urologic Pathology classification system.

A companion website includes the fully searchable text, an image bank with 1,500 additional e-figures, and an interactive quiz bank that is ideal for board exam preparation.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Ivan Damjanov, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This rewritten and reorganized second edition of a urologic pathology book contains new up-to-date concepts, the most recent WHO classification, a new chapter on cytology, and many new illustrations, as well as more recent references.
Purpose: Like the others in Biopsy Interpretation series, this book presents the histopathologic features of a given organ as seen in the biopsy specimens. This one is devoted to the biopsy pathology of the urinary bladder, and with a few exceptions, it deals only with the bioptic material. Its main purpose is to provide a concise but complete review of bladder pathology. The authors have produced a very useful book.
Audience: It is intended for practicing surgical pathologists and their trainees, but it could be useful to urologists and oncologists as well. The authors belong to the elite of urologic pathologists in the U.S., and are well known for their expertise in urologic pathology and for their teaching skills.
Features: The 14 chapters cover normal bladder anatomy, various neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions affecting the bladder, and urinary cytology. Except for the chapter on cytopathology and some aspects of normal anatomy, as well as a few pictures in other chapters, most of the photo documentation is based on urinary bladder biopsies. There is also reference to staging, which obviously requires examination of surgically obtained material and is not based on biopsy alone. The text is lapidary but informative and well illustrated with numerous photomicrographs. All illustrations are in color, taken at proper magnification and thus very informative. Most illustrations are based on hematoxylin and eosin slides, but there are also photos illustrating immunohistochemical stains and cytology smears. At the end of each chapter there are well chosen references. Using an access code, readers can access the Online Companion which contains the fully searchable text, 1,500 full-color images, and a test bank replete with board-type questions that could be used in preparation for examinations.
Assessment: This is a completely rewritten and updated version of a book which in its first edition was praised as the best compact textbook of bladder pathology. This edition contains many new features such as reference to the latest WHO classification of bladder tumors, the most widely used (AJCC) staging system of tumors, and numerous high-quality color illustrations. Residents preparing for the board examination will find the online test bank very useful. I liked the first edition and am duly impressed with the thoroughness of the revision, the wealth of new facts, and the high quality of the illustrations. The authors deserve plaudits for their efforts and the book deserves to be read by practicing diagnostic pathologists as well as their residents. The book also belongs in all hospital libraries and libraries in major pathology or urology departments.
