Clinical Genitourinary Pathology: A case-based learning Approach available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer International Publishing
This book presents clinicopathological insights into common genitourinary diseases, especially those of neoplastic nature, and introduces experiential learning based on case presentations (case-based learning). One of the tasks that trainees face is converting the extensive amount of data into medical experience. Using successive microscopic images, the book gradually and analytically presents diagnostic procedures for the genitourinary system (kidney, urinary bladder, prostate gland and testis). Characteristic cases are presented for each organ, each ending with a clinical commentary and key messages. This form of presentation helps readers acquire the valuable skill of effective diagnostic thinking, focusing their attention on the essential microscopic findings and disregarding insubstantial findings.
Although clinical applications are frequently based on pathological findings which therefore need to be clearly described and recorded, the importance of this in everyday medical practice is often ignored by medical students and downplayed by clinicians. Demonstrating how knowledge can be practically applied, the book is a valuable resource mainly for residents in pathology, urology and oncology but also for medical students with a special interest in histopathology.

What People are Saying About This
“Demonstrating through this innovative approach how knowledge can be practically applied, the book is a valuable resource for residents and novices to the field, not only in pathology but also in urology and oncology. The interested medical student can also benefit from it. It is to be highly recommended among the educational medical literature helping the development of competent pathologists and clinicians alike.” (Prof. Dr Sven Seiwerth, Head of Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, Croatia)
“With this book, trainees and early-stage Pathologists will learn to recognize the most important histologic features in order to reach the correct diagnosis and provide accurate prognostic information to the clinicians and will gain experience with the most common disease entities of Genitourinary Pathology and their immunohishemical features. The book may also serve as a reference book for more experienced Pathologists and will help them enhance their educational skills when teaching younger doctors. Urology and Oncology Fellows will also benefit from the book, by understanding the prognostic information included in the Pathology report and their clinical relevance. In summary, this book is an invaluable tool for Pathology education and provides important insights into Pathology for Urology and Oncology Fellows. I strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Genitourinary Pathology.” (Vasiliki Tzelepi, Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology, Medical School, University of Patras, Greece)
