From the PublisherThis book aims to bridge the gap between the histology of normality and pathologic alterations. A strong grounding in basic histology is essential for all pathologists. However, there had always been a gap between histology and pathology in which histologic information specifically for the pathologist was often lacking. Histology for Pathologists deals with the microscopic features of normal human tissues, from the perspective of the surgical pathologist. This is the only text that uses human (vs. animal) tissues for the histology. It is the best reference in the literature for information on normal histology, and, as such, is essential for all clinical pathologists. Written by pathologists for pathologists, the new edition updates the pathologist’s understanding of normal histology with the incremental advances made in the last five years. The previous edition has become a ‘classic’ purchased by virtually all residents beginning their pathology training, as well as pathologists in practice. “The book is an essential reference for anyone wanting an understanding of clinically relevant histology especially postgraduates undertaking training in histopathology. The book’s main strengths are its focus on the clinically relevant aspects of normal histology delivered with a clear, consistent writing style and expert authorship. Every chapter focuses on the relevant aspects to the daily work of a pathologist including special stains, immunohistochemistry and tissue artefacts. The text is well-illustrated by full colour figures which are a necessity in a reference text. In terms of the key features of the text it fulfils these excellently. The text has been updated in places with very recent references making a new edition worthwhile. It is invaluable to any histopathology trainee wanting to learn about normal histology and may be an excellent reference for practicing consultants especially those practicing general pathology however even subspecialised pathologists may find it useful. The online text is fully searchable although there are no chapter hyperlinks which make browsing the text less easy than it should be. The image bank is an excellent resource however both these features only last as long as the current edition and therefore the CD-ROM with the previous edition and missing here was superior. This text is a worthwhile update to an excellent text. Although focused solely on the pathologist and written with their clinical practise in mind, a goal which it succeeds at expertly, the book would be an excellent educational resource in any medical library and could answer those difficult questions about structure and function for medical students and clinicians in other specialties.”

"Normal histology is the foundation for diagnosing disease. A histology book focused on bridging the gap between histology and pathology is a much-needed resource for pathologists. This fourth edition provides updated information on the incremental advances in our understanding of immunohistochemistry and variations of normal tissue, which certainly warrants a new edition."
