Synopsis

This second edition of a much praised and widely used reference manual on anatomic pathology has been extensively revised and expanded by 70+ international experts to cover the entire curriculum of anatomic pathology for a pathology residency training program, including molecular pathology, human genetics, electron microscopy, microbiology for surgical patho;ogists, transplant pathology, and cytopathology. In addition, the authors have incorporated recent advances in molecular pathology, cytology, and immunohistochemistry, adopted the new series of World Health Organization classification books, and used the 2002 TNM staging system and classifications throughout the book. Several new chapters on transplant pathology, the spleen, non-neoplastic skin diseases, the head and neck, the eye and ocular adnexae, the vulva and vagina, and the penis and scrotum significantly expand the book's coverage. The 2000+ new black-and-white images added to the text are also available in full color on a companion CD-ROM packaged with each book. The comprehensive, evidence-based practice information is presented in an outline format that is clear and easy to follow. A CD-ROM version of the book, including the color images, is sold separately (ISBN 1-59259-926-5).
