Biopsy Interpretation of the Upper Aerodigestive Tract and Ear [NOOK Book]

Overview

Although many tumors of the upper respiratory tract are squamous cell carcinomas, the varied tissues of this region can give rise to a bewildering array of neoplasms. This text reviews the interpretation of biopsies of neoplasms and neoplasm-like entities arising in the head and neck region, including the ear. It discusses both neoplastic and non-neoplastic pathology to help make the correct diagnosis and guide patient management.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a compact yet complete reference dedicated to a common surgical pathology diagnostic field - the upper aerodigestive tract and ear. All chapters in this second edition have been revised to include the current knowledge and understanding of disease, such as HPV-related tumors. The addition of bony lesions and odontogenic lesions in this new edition make it more complete and inclusive. I would highly recommend this book as a quick go-to guide for everyday sign-out."

Weighted Numerical Score: 91 - 4 Stars!

'recent advances in our understanding of aerodigestive tract pathology,” are presented in a user-friendly manner, incorporating selected and targeted use of ancillary techniques to help reach a diagnosis'
'printed photomicrographs are easy to interpret,'
'Kudos to the index: Finally, a book that lists where to find the entity without re-direction or a “see also…,'
'This book would be a welcome addition to any pathology department providing services to otorhinolaryngologists'

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Fang Fan, MD, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a book describing the neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions of the head and neck region encountered in biopsy specimens. The first edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The aim is to aid in the interpretation of biopsies of neoplasms and non-neoplastic lesions arising in the head and neck region, including the ear.
Audience: Practicing pathologists, pathology residents, and surgical pathology fellows are the intended audience.
Features: The book begins with a chapter reviewing normal anatomy and histology. The next 11 chapters cover different lesion/tumor types, ranging from squamous lesions/carcinomas (chapters 2 to 5) to salivary gland-type neoplasms (chapter 6), adenocarcinomas (chapter 7), neural, neuroectodermal, and neuroendocrine neoplasms (chapter 8), hematopoietic and lymphoid disorders (chapter 9), germ cell tumors (chapter 10), soft tissue tumors (chapter 11), and bone, cartilaginous, and jaw lesions (chapter 12). The next three chapters deal with nonneoplastic lesions of different sites, including the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, and nasopharynx (chapter 13), the oral cavity (chapter 14), and the larynx (chapter 15). The final chapter covers the pathology of the ear. The chapters are well organized, focusing on histologic features, differential diagnoses, and ancillary tests, and enriched by tables and high-quality images.
Assessment: This is a compact yet complete reference dedicated to a common surgical pathology diagnostic field - the upper aerodigestive tract and ear. All chapters in this second edition have been revised to include the current knowledge and understanding of disease, such as HPV-related tumors. The addition of bony lesions and odontogenic lesions in this new edition make it more complete and inclusive. I would highly recommend this book as a quick go-to guide for everyday sign-out.
