Dabbs, MD and other leading experts bring you state-of-the-art coverage on genomic and theranostic applications, molecular anatomic pathology, immunocytology, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and more. Additional features such as tables discussing antibody specifications, differential diagnosis boxes, ancillary anatomic molecular diagnostics, and full-color histological images ensure user-friendly coverage that makes key information easy to find and apply. The fully searchable text is also available online at expertconsult.com, along with a downloadable image bank and access to Path Consult. This concise and complete resource is today’s indispensable guide to the effective use of immunohistochemical diagnosis.

• Discusses diagnostic pitfalls through immunohistologic differential diagnosis wherever appropriate so you can provide the most accurate diagnoses.
• Presents chapters arranged by organ system for comprehensive coverage of all relevant information in a convenient and intuitive organization.
• Provides quick reference graphs for antibodies throughout the text that illustrate the frequency of immunostaining for a variety of antibodies in tumors.
• Includes Key Diagnostic Points boxes in every chapter for a quick summary of text areas that are of particular importance.
• Features an expert author for each chapter to ensure coverage of the current state of the art.

• Includes access to the full text online at expertconsult.com, along with a downloadable image bank and Path Consult.
• Provides guidance on the role of genomics in identifying genetic and molecular aspects of disease that may affect patient care and therapeutic approaches.
• Covers theranostic applications to enable you to evaluate therapeutic choices based on immunohistochemical results.
• Reflects the latest developments in the field through new chapters on molecular anatomic pathology and immunocytology, as well as updated chapters on immunohistology of the prostate, bladder, testis, and kidney and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
• Discusses antibody specifications with tables that convey information on uses, clones, vendors, sources, antibody titers, and types of antigen retrieval.
• Presents key differential diagnoses boxes that provide tabular summaries of DDx and algorithms.
• Features discussions of ancillary anatomic molecular diagnostics as an adjunct to immunohistochemistry for a more well-rounded diagnostic approach.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tejashree A Karnik, MBBS (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: Aside from a few chapters dedicated to techniques in immunohistochemistry, the rest of the 23 chapters in this book deal with organ systems. Chapters are very well structured, and the book includes access to an online version. The previous edition was published in 2010.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate pathologists about the use of immunohistochemistry and theranostics in accurate diagnosis and to be better prepared to help oncologists and their patients with therapy-related decisions.
Audience: It will be useful for residents and practitioners in pathology, as well as interested oncologists.
Features: In every chapter dedicated to a particular organ system, each tumor-specific antibody is described with a brief explanation about where the antibody binds, including neoplastic or normal cells. The book has lovely tables that list the immunohistochemical profile of all the tumors. For example, in the chapter on renal neoplasms, there are separate tables listing the immunohistochemical profile for all renal tumors along with differential diagnoses. A separate section in each chapter covers theranostic applications for various tumors. Chapters on immunohistochemistry techniques include standardization methods, pitfalls, and troubleshooting artifacts in staining. The book is easy to navigate and read, and the tables make it a great reference source. Also worth mentioning are the many pictures showing various staining patterns, a good aid for visual learning.
Assessment: This is a great contribution to the field of pathology. The book will be very useful for anyone who wants to know immunohistochemistry and theranostics in detail.
