Overview

Practical Differential Diagnosis in Surgical Neuropathology provides a practical approach to some of the more commonly encountered problems the pathologist face when confronted with brain biopsy specimens. Surg ical neuropathologists often must make quick decisions during an Intra operative consultation, where time is of essence and the technical asp ects of the preparations may be less than ideal, with this in mind the authors developed a user-friendly manual that is practical, understan dable, and to the point (minimizing reading time during intraoperative consultation). Drs. Prayson and Cohen have concentrated the book's fo cus on elucidating important neuropathologic entities that fall outsid e of general surgical practice thus providing pathologists, radiologis ts, and neurosurgery residents a practical histopathologic approach to neurosurgical diseases.
