This series of fascicles comprising an international classification of rodent tumors provides information and guidelines especially adapted for international use in practical toxicologic pathology. This is expressed particularly in the concise easy-to-use format of the narrative in all sections. Included in this classification are tumors and relevant pre-neoplastic lesions of the rat for all organ systems. The third fascicle covers the urinary system and is divided into data-sheets which represent the essential information on a particular lesion. Each data-sheet is prepared in a standard layout, always starting on a new page with a header section. The descriptions of the diagnostic features comprise the main histopathological features of the specified lesion in a concise list. Most data-sheets include at least one typical micrograph, selected from among both spontaneous and induced lesions.
