Sixty three problems cover the wide range of approximately of problems encountered in intraoperative consultations. Each presentation provides the case information as presented to the consultant, the evaluation and analysis of the specimen, discussion of the results and teaching points observed in the case, and an overall comment providing additional context for the diagnostic problem that has been presented. This problem-oriented format makes the book a superb reference resource for the working diagnostician and an ideal teaching tool for the resident or fellow.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This unique book provides insight into the minds of experienced practicing pathologists and advice on how to better phrase frozen section diagnoses so as to avoid inappropriate surgical management." - Doody's Reviews, December 2013
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sarah Thompson McHugh, M.D.(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: Written in a case format and divided into chapters by organ system, this book is intended to highlight some of the pitfalls encountered with frozen section pathology. Each case begins with a patient history and images of the frozen sections performed for that case. Following these images is a case discussion that details some of the pitfalls and how the authors worked through these concerns.
Purpose: The purpose is to highlight pitfalls and give advice on how to manage these difficult scenarios. This is an interesting approach to frozen section pathology and one which I have not seen prior to this. The text and images serve the purpose of making the reader think about the various trip-ups that they might encounter and perhaps better prepare them to manage them.
Audience: This book targets general surgical pathologists that participate in intraoperative consultations. The objective of educating pathologists about how to better manage diagnostic difficulties can be applied to both residents and practicing pathologists. Although not intended to be comprehensive, the book does a good job of highlighting a wide range of frozen section conundrums.
Features: The 10 chapters are divided by organ system. Each chapter contains a collection of intraoperative consultation cases with which the authors experienced difficulty. The first page of each case contains patient history and images of the frozen section histology. The remaining pages of the case are devoted to discussing the appropriate intraoperative diagnosis and differential diagnoses.
Assessment: This unique book provides insight into the minds of experienced practicing pathologists and advice on how to better phrase frozen section diagnoses so as to avoid inappropriate surgical management. Its case-by-case nature makes this an educational book, but limits its utility as a reference.
