More About This Textbook

Overview

Designed as an easy-to-use and comprehensive reference for the practicing pathologist, Diagnostic Pathology: Head and Neck is the highly anticipated title in the Diagnostic Pathology series offered by Amirsys. This book is a multiauthored, comprehensive overview of the pathology of head and neck essentials, including the thyroid and parathyroid glands. The Amirsys-pioneered bulleted text is easy to follow with detailed information per disease entity. As with our other Diagnostic Pathology titles, chapters include definitions, terminology, etiologies and pathogenesis, demographics, clinical presentations, therapy, prognoses, radiologic imaging, pathology, and differential diagnoses. The pathologic features are extensively detailed with descriptions of the macroscopic features, microscopic findings, cytopathology (as indicated), and as needed, ancillary studies. The latter include histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, molecular diagnostics and ultrastructural findings. Each entity is enhanced by superior medical images, including gross and microscopic pathology, a wide range of pathology stains, and detailed medical illustrations. In addition, you’ll find cancer staging and specimen examination protocols—one of the most useful hallmarks of the series—plus detailed immunohistochemistry panels. This state-of-the-art volume will guide the reader through the intricacies of head and neck pathology to provide the information required in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of head and neck pathology.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Grant Derek Schafer, DO (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This book describes in detail the numerous pathological entities of the head and neck using an outline format and color-coded pages that help in locating particular sections.
Purpose: It is intended to provide a comprehensive review of head and neck pathology and enable easy access to pertinent information. This is the only book in head and neck pathology in outline format that I have used. It is as complete as any other book on the subject and absolutely accomplishes its primary objective.
Audience: It is written primarily for pathology residents and practicing pathologists and it most definitely succeeds as a quick and succinct reference. The layout allows pathologists (or medical students) to acquire the most pertinent information without wading through pages of text.
Features: The book is divided into 11 sections covering the nasal cavity to the parathyroid and thyroid glands. Each section is then divided into subsections on congenital, infectious, reactive, benign neoplasms, and malignant neoplasms. Each subsection describes multiple entities with many pictures, differential diagnoses, and references (although the reference section appears somewhat out of place). The sheer number of pictures, particularly in the salivary gland section, is absolutely stunning. Add to that the cytology and histology photos, and this becomes a very powerful tool and wonderful diagnostic aid.
Assessment: This book is quick and easy to use, but does not sacrifice information. The outline format helps pathologists gather a lot of information quickly and, even more important, information wholly applicable to practice. The unique outline format sets it apart from other books in this area of pathology.
