Overview

Here's a new, practical, "bench" guide for the diagnosis of neoplastic and non-neoplastic bone, muscle, and soft-tissue disorders. The author used histologic/cytologic approaches coupled with fine needle aspiration biopsy and clinicoradiologic correlations to create a unique, one-stop reference. Over 1,050 illustrations aid the diagnostic process, and a consistent approach helps readers get the information they need fast.

• Covers bone, skeletal muscle, and soft tissue disorders and neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions, in one convenient volume.
• Incorporates histologic diagnosis with cytologic and clinicoradiologic correlations.
• Discusses the hottest topics in the field, including fine needle aspiration findings · osseous tumors of bone and soft tissue · infectious, metabolic, and arthritic conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
• Features superb images from the author's extensive personal collection.
• Includes over 1050 illustrations, summary immunohistochemistry tables, and boxes, highlighting key information.

Reviewer: Ivan Damjanov, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This new textbook of orthopedic pathology covers mostly neoplastic diseases of the bones and soft tissues. It deals with gross pathology, histopathology, cytologic aspects of orthopedic neoplasms and related conditions, and correlates these pathologic findings with the radiologic and clinical manifestations of these diseases.
Purpose: The authors have prepared a practical bench side guide to orthopedic pathology. Their purpose was to integrate the classical microscopic and macroscopic features of orthopedic diseases with the cytologic findings and then correlate all these pathologic findings with the radiologic and clinical aspects. The authors achieve goals, but it remains questionable whether a new textbook of orthopedic pathology is needed.
Audience: The book is intended for residents in pathology and practicing pathologists and cytopathologists. The author has studied orthopedic pathology with the most prominent authorities in the field and has incorporated the lessons learned during the years spent in training as well as in his own practice.
Features: This relatively small book is divided into 16 chapters. The chapters have more or less descriptive, morphologically defined names such as "small round cells tumors," "spindle cell tumors," "giant cell tumors," "cysts," etc. A chapter devoted to infectious metabolic and arthritic disease is included for sake of completeness, but it only highlights the fact that the emphasis is on neoplastic diseases. All these diseases are covered systematically but in an abbreviated form. The book is illustrated with color figures presenting macroscopic microscopic and cytologic aspects of various diseases, and correlates them with the radiologic and clinical. There are good tables correlating the clinical and pathologic findings. Tables dealing with grading of tumors or the principal immunohistochemical findings are also included in many chapters.
Assessment: This is a brief, practical guide to orthopedic pathology. However, it is not novel in its approach and only time will tell whether it will survive in an overcrowded field that contains several well known books. The only unique aspect of the book not found in other books of orthopedic pathology is the correlation of macroscopic microscopic features of orthopedic diseases with the cytology. The fact that the authors' style is lapidary and the information is presented in brief paragraphs is also a virtue. These aspects of the book will be appreciated by those looking for a relatively short textbook of orthopedic pathology.
From the Publisher
"One of the amazing things about this book is that it is able to present this material in succinct format without appearing to omit any necessary detail. It almost makes this subject seem easy...The pictures are terrific and in full color, the tables are useful, and the other lesions that are in the differential for any entity are all in the same chapter and easily cross referenced. This clearly is a textbook that was meant to be used...The strength of this book is that it is different than the other textbooks available on this subject. It is clearly the best textbook on the cytology of bone and soft tissue tumors." Advances in Anatomic Pathology

"I wholeheartedly recommend it." The Journal of Histotechnology

"Its uniqueness stems from the fact that this book gives a quick and practical overview of dieases affecting the locomotor system in an extreme user-friendly fashion. A book of similar attributes is hard to find.
The text is written in 393 pages with over 1,250 illustrations including 1,104 full-color images. These illustrations are not only of suberb quality and clarity, but also highly educational. Many remarkable tables and summary boxes complement the text and illustrations.
This textbook provides a comprehensive and quick practical guide to understanding modern cytologic and histologic diagnosis of musculoskeletal surgical pathology. This book is useful to all treating clinicians, practicing pathologists, residents, cytotechnologists, and physician assistants with interest in this field of Pathology. It is one of a kind and should be placed close and handy in our reference bookshelf." Wiley InterScience, 2005
