Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Mark Oscherwitz, M.D.(University of Kansas School of Medicine)
Description: In this brief forensic neuropathology atlas, the authors cover the major topics of forensic neuropathology with an emphasis on trauma, as well as many common neurological disorders. Special charts are found at the end of the chapters to highlight key points of the examination.
Purpose: The goal of the authors is to provide a concise neuropathologic guide for pathologists performing forensic and hospital-based autopsies. With this short atlas, the authors have provided an easily accessible resource to correlate neuropathologic findings. This well illustrated book has a clear niche in the pathology and forensic literature. The authors, well respected authorities in the field, have thoroughly achieved their goals.
Audience: The intended readers of this book are primarily pathologists who perform forensic and hospital-based autopsies. It will also be helpful to students and residents in pathology trying to find their way in forensics and neuropathology.
Features: In the book, the authors have covered the essential areas of forensic and general neuropathology. Topics covered range from basic trauma to neoplastic and infectious diseases. The authors have nicely covered the various hemorrhagic lesions frequently encountered by the pathologist at autopsy. Each chapter contains excellent gross and microscopic photographs with pertinent clinical information and descriptions. Several chapters contain sample gross descriptions, which are particularly useful. A special added feature is the discussion on posterior neck dissection and spinal cord removal. For quick reference, the authors have included a nice review of cranial and neuroanatomy.
Assessment: This is a well written and extensively illustrated text and atlas. The case-oriented format allows for quick referencing. The book is particularly useful for training forensic pathologists with an emphasis on neuropathology. Overall, the authors have made a significant contribution to forensic pathology.
From The Critics
This atlas of forensic neuropathology provides 550 color autopsy photographs accompanied by explanations of the medical findings that should be documented by pathologists during the investigation of death. The approach is case-oriented, with specialized chapters on skull fracture, subdural hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, firearm injury, epilepsy, pediatrics, infection, and decomposition. The final chapter reviews normal human neuroanatomy as a reference. Dolinak is a medical examiner in Dallas. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Wow! It's about time

    As a practicing medical examiner, I have waited a very long time (since Leestma) for a complete and accurate resource for forensic neuropathology. Medicolegal Neuropathology is just that book. Not only is it very useable, but wow, are the photos amazing. 2 thumbs up to CRC Press for designing such an attractive and user-friendly atlas!
