Neoplastic Mimics in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Pathology [NOOK Book]

Overview

Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis-clinical, radiologic, and pathologic-and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

Hundreds of color images and analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies, and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate ...

Overview

Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis-clinical, radiologic, and pathologic-and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

Hundreds of color images and analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies, and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of the entities described are uncommon, Neoplastic Mimics in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Pathology emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees skin cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.

This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the skin. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of skin lesions that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.

Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology Features:

  • Nearly 500 high-quality images showcase the full range of nonneoplastic and neoplastic mimics in skin
  • Concise, specific text descriptions to make the book easy to use as a visual reference
  • Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Natalie M Webster, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This book describes non-neoplastic pathology that mimics neoplastic processes within the realm of thoracic and cardiovascular pathology.
Purpose: It is intended as an effective adjunct to existing books on thoracic and cardiovascular pathology while extending the coverage to include neoplastic mimics. Providing a supplemental book that attempts to cover a more difficult topic in a succinct format is a worthy objective.
Audience: Although the authors do not indicate their audience, this book is appropriate for practicing pathologists, including pathology residents and staff. It would be most helpful for those who encounter thoracic and cardiovascular pathology on a routine basis. The authors provide good insights into diagnostic dilemmas in thoracic and cardiovascular pathology.
Features: This book covers the broad spectrum of neoplastic mimics in thoracic and cardiovascular pathology including lung, pleura, thymus/mediastinal, heart, pericardium, and blood vessels. The highlights of this book are the numerous photomicrographs, radiologic imaging, and gross photographs in addition to the succinct text. The shortcomings include the quality of some of the photomicrographs which appear pixilated. However, most of the photographs are of good quality and add to the usefulness of the book.
Assessment: This is a useful and relevant source of information when used as an adjunct to existing books on thoracic and cardiovascular pathology. It covers a difficult topic in this area of pathology succinctly, while making it easier for readers to understand.
