Overview

This text-atlas is a practical, integrated, and modern approach to lymph node pathology. Intended for both practicing pathologists and pathologists in training, it provides a personal view of lymph node diagnosis by one of the international leaders in the field. Illustrated with over 250 full-color photographs, this book covers the entire range of disease that may be encountered in lymph node pathology. It features extensive coverage of non-neoplastic lymphoid lesions and non-lymphoid lesions, as well as discussing all malignant lymphomas and other neoplasms that may involve lymph nodes in both adult and pediatric populations. The orientation is unique, as the text not only showcases various disease entities but also portrays the progression of disease states from incipient to advanced. Finally, the author emphasizes differential diagnosis, covering all of the methods used in distinguishing different easily confused entities.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anamarija M Perry, MD (University of Nebraska Medical Center)
Description: This text-atlas presents a practical, integrated, and modern approach to lymph node pathology. It covers non-neoplastic lymphoid lesions as well as malignant lymphomas and other neoplasms that may involve lymph nodes. It is well illustrated with numerous microscopic images reproduced in full color.
Purpose: The book imparts the author's personal approach to lymph node diagnosis and covers all the lymph node diseases that pathologists may encounter in everyday practice. The author's great experience in diagnostic pathology and his profound understanding of lymph node pathology are tangible throughout. His clear writing makes the book readable and his approach fully understandable.
Audience: Practicing general pathologists who deal with lymph nodes in everyday practice are the intended audience. Pathology residents and hematopathology fellows, as well as hematopathologists and oncologists also will find it useful.
Features: The book is divided into 11 sections, which are further subdivided into specific diseases. The first two chapters briefly describe specimens and studies used in lymph node pathology, as well as the structure of a normal lymph node. The third section is dedicated to benign lymphadenopathies. Sections four and five describe nonlymphoid lesions encountered in lymph nodes, such as epithelial, melanocytic, and stromal lesions. Sections six and seven are dedicated to Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Section eight describes composite lymphomas, while section nine deals with immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferative disorders. Histiocytic and dendritic cell neoplasms are described in section ten, while section eleven describes myeloid and mast cell neoplasms. A list of references and a very useful index end the book. Most of the microscopic images are excellent, well chosen, and informative.
Assessment: This is a great tool for general surgical pathologists and covers virtually all diagnostic problems that they may encounter in everyday practice. It outlines the key aspects of the most important forms of lymphoma, and also portrays the progression of disease states from initial to terminal. It is written concisely in simple declarative sentences, constantly addressing questions typically raised by the practicing pathologists. The emphasis is on diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and the appropriate use of ancillary techniques. Color illustrations are of excellent quality, carefully chosen to complement the text and demonstrate the most characteristic features of described entities as well as their variants. The references are well chosen and the emphasis is on review articles which provide guidance for further reading. Most busy pathologists, who do not have the time for lengthy textbooks, will be delighted with this book which will provide in a condensed form all the essential facts and will definitely help them in dealing with lymph node diseases. The book deserves to be widely read and I recommend it most enthusiastically. It belongs in the working libraries of all surgical pathologists dealing with lymph node pathology. It also should be available to pathology and hematology residents and fellows and deserves to be on the shelves of departmental and hospital libraries.
