Description: This concise book takes a well-organized approach to describing the most important points of the most common diseases and lesions in bone and soft-tissue pathology.
Purpose: The book provides a systematic approach to the most common diseases and lesions in bone and soft tissue. It is not intended to replace more complete textbooks and references on bone and soft tissue pathology, but rather to provide a starting place and practical guide for common lesions.
Audience: This is a perfect overview for pathology residents in training or for practicing pathologists who want a concise refresher in this area. Medical students, orthopedic surgeons, and radiologists who have an interest in orthopedic pathology may find it useful as well. The authors all have expertise in the field of orthopedic pathology.
Features: Chapters include normal anatomy and histology, arthropathies, infection, metabolic bone disease, and tumors of bone and soft tissue. The tumor discussions include clinical information, radiographic characteristics, and gross and microscopic descriptions. The exceptional, high quality radiographic, gross, and histologic photomicrographs highlight the salient features of each entity.
Assessment: This practical, concise, and beautifully illustrated book encompasses the most common diseases in bone and soft-tissue pathology.
