Albores-Saavedra: Tumors of the Gallbladder, Extrahepatic Bile Ducts, and Ampulla of Vater (Vol 27)
By Jorge Albores-Saavedra, Donald Earl Henson, and David S. Klimstra
2000, 365 pages, $85 list
Tumors of the gallbladder, extrahepatic bile ducts, and ampulla of Vater are uncommon and show a broad morphologic spectrum. Because of their rarity and unusual morphologic features, some of these tumors pose a real challenge to the pathologist. Their exact histologic classification, however, is essential for therapeutic and prognostic purposes. Moreover, a wide variety of tumorlike lesions that arise at these anatomic sites complicate the differential diagnosis. In this third series fascicle, the gross, microscopic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features of benign and malignant tumors of the gallbladder, extrahepatic bile ducts, and ampulla of Vater are illustrated and discussed in detail. In addition to the common adenocarcinomas, many other tumor types including clear cell, undifferentiated, and small-cell carcinomas; adenomas; and mesenchymal, lymphoid, and endocrine neoplasms, are included. The association of endocrine tumors with clinical syndromes is emphasized. When appropriate, information about molecular pathology is included. Valuable epidemiologic data and prognostic factors for gallbladder, extrahepatic bile duct, and ampullary carcinomas are provided. This 365-page fascicle, which includes 628 illustrations (most of which are in color), should be an essential reference for residents, oncologists, and pathologists in practice.

D'Onofrio: Imaging and Pathology of Pancreatic Neoplasms
By Mirko D'Onofrio, Paola Capelli, Paola Pederzoli, Claudio Bassi and Alec Megibow
2015, 432 pages, 327 illus, $104 list
Although interest in pancreatic pathology is very high in the radiological and gastroenterological communities, it is still the case that less is known about pathology of the pancreas than about liver pathology, for example. Diagnosis depends on the structure of the pancreatic lesion, which can be directly visualized on US, CT or MR images. This atlas, which encompasses both the imaging and the pathology of pancreatic neoplasms, will therefore be invaluable in enabling radiologists and sonographers to understand the underlying pathology and in allowing pancreatic pathologists to understand the imaging translation.
Delaini: Intestinal Polyps and Polyposis: From Genetics to Treatment and Follow-Up
By G.G. Delaini
2013 (1st ed), 260 pages, 100 illus, $159 list
Nowadays, we are dealing more frequently with the entity of large intestine polyps, as endoscopy and bowel cancer screening programmes are rapidly expanding. Often a single polyp is involved, but more complex situations are also encountered, including the well-defined pattern of polyposis. These situations can fall into a gray area, not only for diagnosis, but also for the correct treatment and follow-up. New developments in pathophysiology and treatment options are leading to new questions. This handbook aims to offer a integrated approach for all physicians (doctors) who deal with these issues, by presenting up-to-date discussion from genetics through treatment, to implications of genetic counseling. It will also help specialists to offer more "evidence-based" treatments, by implementing the best clinical individual judgement informed by the best current scientific evidence.
