Overview

The Gleason Grading System: A Complete Guide for Pathologists and Clinicians provides exhaustive coverage of the updated Gleason Grading System, which deals not only with pathology but also with the associated clinical correlations and prognosis. 

The Gleason Grading System is the most important prognostic marker of prostate cancer, which is critical to patient management and drives therapies across all disciplines dealing with prostate cancer. In addition to an extensive number of photographs, this book discusses in detail clinically related issues that are crucial for the urologist, radiotherapist, and oncologist to know, such as predicting upgrading and downgrading from needle biopsy to radical prostatectomy, risk of Gleason grading change over time, significance of tertiary grade patterns, and prognosis and implications related to various Gleason scores and different therapies.  Images that were particularly difficult for contributing pathologists sent in for consultation are used in addition to classic examples, as these cases are the most informative in showing the difficulties with Gleason grading. This book is a valuable tool not only for surgical pathologists from the resident level to seasoned practitioners but also for urology residents, urologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The objective is to educate those involved in Gleason grading and this book not only meets it, but surpasses it."
"There are absolutely no shortcomings of this book."
"This is the most useful book that has come across my desk in a long time. It truly is a complete guide for pathologists and clinicians who use the Gleason system. Every pathology and urology training program in the U.S. needs a copy for their trainees as it presents the most up-to-date information in an easy-to-read and abundantly illustrated format. It is essential for anyone who interprets prostate biopsies or manages patients with prostate cancer."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Maura F. O'Neil, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This complete resource on the Gleason grading system includes pathological criteria for implementing the updated Gleason system as well as associated clinical correlations and prognosis.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide exhaustive coverage of the updated Gleason system, which is the most important prognostic marker today for prostate cancer. This book contains critical information for anyone who is involved in the interpretation of prostate biopsies and resections or in the care of patients with prostate cancer. The objective is to educate those involved in Gleason grading and this book not only meets it, but surpasses it.
Audience: The intended audience includes pathologists, urologists, oncologists, and radiation oncologists. The author, Dr. Jonathan Epstein, is an international expert in urologic pathology and a key member of the 2005 International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) who decided the modifications and updates to the Gleason grading system. There is no more appropriate author for this book.
Features: Numerous beautiful photographs illustrate all the key features of the different Gleason grades. In addition to the extensive photographs, the book covers many clinically related issues critical for urologists and oncologists, such as predicting upgrading and downgrading from needle biopsy to radical prostatectomy, risk of Gleason grading change over time, significance of tertiary grade patterns, and prognosis and implications related to various Gleason scores and different therapies. In addition to all the examples of classic Gleason grades, the book extensively covers difficult biopsies, which is particularly useful for practicing pathologists. There are absolutely no shortcomings of this book.
Assessment: This is the most useful book that has come across my desk in a long time. It truly is a complete guide for pathologists and clinicians who use the Gleason system. Every pathology and urology training program in the U.S. needs a copy for their trainees as it presents the most up-to-date information in an easy-to-read and abundantly illustrated format. It is essential for anyone who interprets prostate biopsies or manages patients with prostate cancer.
