Overview

Thoroughly updated and revised in line with the latest World Health Organization classification system, the second edition of Diagnostic Lymph Node Pathology continues to be an essential guide to the interpretation of lymph node biopsies for all professional and trainee general pathologists and haematopathologists alike.

Tthe new edition covers both classical and less well known features of individual disease processes together with the differential diagnoses of lymph node biopsy specimens. B-cell lymphomas have been reorganized in line with WHO guidelines. Topics such as Epstein-Barr virus, age-related lymphomas and prognostic indicators have been expanded, and new cases using needle core biopsies are presented.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Wei Cui, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: Both benign/reactive and malignant lymphoid processes are covered in this concise but high-yield book. The boxed summary of each entity listed in each chapter is very helpful. The previous edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: The understanding of the biology and pathology of malignant lymphomas and the way to interpret lymph node biopsies have changed significantly since the previous edition. New entities were introduced in the WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues, 4th edition, Swerdlow et al. (World Health Organization, 2008).
Audience: This book is good for a wide-ranging audience that includes residents, pathologists, and hematopathologists.
Features: It covers benign/reactive and malignant lymphoid processes, non-lymphoid neoplasms, and interpretation of needle core biopsies of lymph nodes. The immunohistochemistry and differential diagnosis sections are well done. The summary boxes in each chapter are very informative and are easy to remember.
Assessment: This is a nice, concise book to have for a quick reference with many illustrations that provide graphical information. With the addition of new entities and the expansions of existing chapters, this edition is justified.
