Overview

This title in the Foundations of Neuropathology Series packs all of the field's essentials into one value-priced volume. A templated, full-color design and a multitude of tables make it the perfect way to review all of the most important aspects of neuropathology. For each entity, the authors examine clinical features, pathologic features (gross and microscopic), ancillary studies, differential diagnosis, and prognostic and therapeutic considerations. Full-color illustrations demonstrate the nuances of a full range of findings.

• Uses a full-color, templated format with a multitude of tables to make reference quick and easy.

• Reviews normal histology before examining abnormal findings.

• Covers both neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions of the nervous system.

• Examines clinical features, pathologic features (gross and microscopic), ancillary studies, differential diagnosis, and prognostic and therapeutic considerations for each entity.

• Focuses on the lesions most commonly seen in practice.

• Features full-color examples of the pathological features of a variety of lesions.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian E. Moore, MD (Rhode Island Hospital)
Description: This book encapsulates the essentials of neuropathology in a consistent, templated format that includes clinical considerations, radiologic findings, pathologic features, differential diagnosis, and prognosis/therapy.
Purpose: This is the first in an anticipated pathology series entitled Foundations in Diagnostic Pathology (series editor: John R. Goldblum). This book establishes the format of the series, which aims to provide a templated, highly illustrated overview of subspecialties within anatomic pathology. This book successfully meets the objective.
Audience: The audience is broad, including general pathologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropathology trainees. The authors are all established authorities in neuropathology, most having written books and chapters in the subject before.
Features: The major topics of neuropathology are covered, including developmental anomalies, tumors, trauma, vascular disease, infection, autoimmune disorders, metabolic maladies, peripheral nerve and muscle disease, and neurodegeneration. A unique feature is the consistent use of summary charts of material covered in more detail in the book. I was particularly impressed with the first chapter, an overview of CNS anatomy and histology by Dr. Daniel Brat (Emory University), which artfully distills the important elements of a daunting topic.
Assessment: This is an excellent summary of the essentials of neuropathology. There are smaller and less expensive texts, most recently Escourolle & Poirier Manual of Basic Neuropathology, 4th edition, Gray et al. (Butterworth-Heinemann, 2003, list price $71.95). And there are larger, more comprehensive texts, such as Greenfield's Neuropathology - 2 Volume Set, 7th edition, Graham and Lantos (Arnold Publishers, 2002, list price $499). This new book positions itself between these two in terms of comprehensiveness, prompting categorization with Principles and Practice of Neuropathology, 2nd edition, Nelson et al. (Oxford University Press, 2003, list price $195), which is also an excellent summary of the essential elements of neuropathology.

Weighted Numerical Score: 98

Pleased to recommend it to anyone involved in diagnostic neuropathology. Neuropathology is an outstanding addition to the diagnostic literature that is available.
The Journal of Histotechnology, August 2005

Prayson presents a review of essentials of neuropathology, covering both neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions of the nervous system, which focus on the lesions most commonly seen in practice. Full-colour photos and medical images demonstrate the nuances of a full range of findings. For pathology residents, pathologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons.

    From basics to complexity

    An updated book of Neuropathology. It starts showing normal neurohistology, an issue generally not addressed. Gross specimens, histopathology and some imaging as well as didactic, colored tables. Easy to read, a lot of illustrations. A must for neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists.
