Miettinen M.M. 2010 Cambridge U.P. 1116 pp € 198.00

This book comprehensively covers modern soft tissue pathology and includes both tumors and non-neoplastic entities. Soft tissues make up a large bulk of the human body, and they are susceptible to a wide range of diseases. Many soft-tissue tumors are biologically very aggressive, and the chance of them metastasizing to vital organs is quite high. In recent years, the outlook for soft-tissue cancers has brightened dramatically due to the increased accuracy of the pathologist’s tools. All methods of diagnosis are covered here, with an emphasis on the newest immunoassays and other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities. This book’s systematic description of benign and malignant primary soft tissue tumors with didactic, comprehensive panels of illustrations allows the reader to formulate a complete understanding of the morphology of tumor entities at one glance. The book covers both the most common tumor entities and more unusual diseases using more than 1,500 color images, making it a resource for beginning and senior pathologists. - Extensive panels of illustrations allow reader to quickly understand the histologic spectrum of tumors - Unique charts of tumor demography and anatomic location - Includes discussion of ancillary techniques Expanded definition includes metastatic melanoma and carcinomas, etc.

Biopsy Interpretation of The Lung

Suster Summer 2011 Lippincott W.&W. ca 256 pp ca € 137.30 The majority of current texts on pulmonary pathology are based on the “whole picture” approach, that is, the presentation of the information as we have come to know it from the study of whole, resected lungs at surgery or at autopsy. In an era of increasingly non-invasive procedures and advanced and highly specific protocols for the treatment of malignancy and other diseases, it becomes imperative for pathologists to become conversant with the evaluation of disease processes of the lungs on very small and limited tissue samples. This volume in the series would be designed to fill in that gap and address that specific in detail. Hematopathology
