This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art account of the role of immunohistochemistry in the diagnosis of skin tumors, which is crucial given that overlapping histologic features and unusual morphologic changes can lead to considerable diagnostic uncertainty. The book reviews in detail the sensitivity and specificity of commonly available antibodies and their pattern of immunostaining. readers will learn when to order antibodies and how to interpret findings. In addition, prognostic markers are evaluated and emphasis placed on the pitfalls commonly encountered when evaluating these neoplasms. The text is complemented by a wealth of superb images.

Pathology is an inherently subjective discipline, and therefore is often referred to as both an art and a science. Over the years, laboratory physicians have implemented special tissue stains and molecular techniques to limit subjectivity in the discipline. Beginning in the late 19th century, histochemical stains were developed to assess diagnostic biochemical reactions in tissue. Histochemistry has recently seen a resurgence in popularity because of the higher costs of other newer methods. Today, this technique is used by almost every pathology laboratory across the world. This book comprehensively covers all diseases for which that technique plays a central role in diagnosis. Every anatomic region is covered in detail with examples of appropriate staining techniques, and the book is heavily illustrated with over 850 color photomicrographs. This is the first monograph to be published on histochemistry in 15 years, and it is the only one that is diagnostically-oriented.

Immunophenotyping is the most powerful tool in the routine diagnosis of hematologic neoplasms. Immunohistochemical technique is used in histology labs for this purpose, while flow cytometry is used in clinical labs. While separately these 2 techniques are very useful in detecting lymphomas and leukemias, the combination of both creates a very powerful and definitive diagnostic tool. The addition of molecular genetics to the book will make it an all-encompassing reference text.

Rapid and cost-effective immunohistochemistry plays a crucial role in diagnostic pathology. However there are currently very few textbooks dedicated to its role, especially in diagnostic dermatopathology. This comprehensive volume provides a practical guide to the application of immunohistochemistry in dermatopathology and bridges the knowledge gap by updating readers with helpful diagnostic immunostains as well as recently available ones. Organized by lines of differentiation, each chapter includes a synopsis of applicable antibodies, pertinent immunohistochemical panels, summary tables outlining the staining patterns of the entities in the differential diagnosis, and case studies.

This book provides a fundamental understanding of immunopathology and immunopathologic processes, with particular attention to nonclinical toxicology studies. Chapters provide organ system–based summaries of spontaneous pathology and common responses to xenobiotics. A companion volume, Immunopathology in Toxicology and Drug Development: Volume 1, Immunobiology, Investigative Techniques, and Special Studies, offers an overview of general immunobiology, cells of the immune system, signaling and effector molecules, and immunopathology assays.
