Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sarah Thompson McHugh, M.D.(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a good general overview of tumor pathology that highlights the most common and most important entities encountered in surgical pathology. Ample good quality pictures illustrate the key histological features and tables highlight the differences between new and old tumor classification systems and help with immunohistochemical stains.
Purpose: This edition aims to discuss the recent advances in molecular diagnostics and tumor classification and prognostication. This is a lofty objective, given the seemingly constant influx of new scientific advances. The book not only meets this goal, but exceeds it with well-organized tables and flowcharts.
Audience: It is intended as a reference for both practicing pathologists and pathology residents.
Features: It provides practicing pathologists with succinct descriptions of pertinent molecular and immunohistochemical findings. Of note, the pulmonary, gynecologic, soft tissue, and gastrointestinal chapters are especially helpful. The colorful tables and flowcharts do an excellent job of illustrating some of the recent changes in pathology.
Assessment: This book does a great job of updating readers on recent changes in tumor classification. Despite its size, it is user friendly and helpful, with an ideal number of color illustrations.
