Epstein: The Gleason Grading System
By Jonathan Epstein
2012 (1st ed), 224 pages, 489 illus, $169 list
This book provides exhaustive coverage of the updated Gleason Grading System, which deals not only with pathology but also with the associated clinical correlations and prognosis. The Gleason Grading System is the most important prognostic marker of prostate cancer, which is critical to patient management and drives therapies across all disciplines dealing with prostate cancer. In addition to an extensive number of photographs, this book discusses in detail clinically related issues that are crucial for the urologist, radiotherapist, and oncologist to know, such as predicting upgrading and downgrading from needle biopsy to radical prostatectomy, risk of Gleason grading change over time, significance of tertiary grade patterns, and prognosis and implications related to various Gleason scores and different therapies. Images that were particularly difficult for contributing pathologists sent in for consultation are used in addition to classic examples, as these cases are the most informative in showing the difficulties with Gleason grading. This book is a valuable tool not only for surgical pathologists from the resident level to seasoned practitioners but also for urology residents, urologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists.

Koss: Koss's Cytology of the Urinary Tract with Histopathologic Correlations
By Leopold Koss
2012 (1st ed), 141 pages, 81 illus, $139 list
Fifteen years have elapsed since the publication of the original book under the same title. With the passage of time little has changed and the same conceptual mistakes continue to be made in the practice of urinary cytopathology as in the past. For this reason a much simplified new edition of this book with the application of new processing techniques has been thought to be a worthwhile undertaking . Numerous new color photographs from the file of the co-editor have replaced old black and white photographs and will hopefully support the brief text for the benefit of patients. This volume will appeal to urologists as well as pathologists, cytopathologists and related professions.
MacLennan: Atlas of Genitourinary Pathology
By Gregory MacLennan
2011 (1st ed), 578 pages, $239 list

The book is lavishly illustrated with images accompanied by text that explains the visual images, highlighting key diagnostic features and providing brief but helpful discussions of the differential diagnosis.
Murphy: Tumors of the Kidney, Bladder and Related Urinary Structures (Vol 1)
By William M. Murphy, David J. Grignon, Elizabeth J. Perlman
2004, 394 pages, $120 list
Since the publication of the Third Series Fascicle on Tumors of the Kidney, Bladder, and Related Urinary Structures in 1994, there has been a revolution in our understanding of the clinical, pathologic, and molecular features of these lesions. Thus, it is fitting that this volume should be the first of the Fourth Series Tumor Fascicles. In the Fourth Series in general, and in this fascicle in particular, there is an increased emphasis on new molecular findings which are relevant to diagnostic tumor pathology, as well as on the diagnostic features of aspiration and exfoliative cytopathology. Differential diagnosis is also emphasized, and numerous tables summarize important differential diagnostic considerations, including the appropriate roles of immunohistochemical stains. Important recommendations for gross dissection and surgical pathology report construction are also included. Drs. Murphy, Perlman, and Grignon have expanded the Third Series Fascicle by approximately twenty percent, and almost all of the 586 illustrations are now in color. The 1530 references in five chapters are comprehensive and up to date.

Scardino: Comprehensive Textbook of Genitourinary Oncology
By Peter Scardino
2011 (4th ed), 973 pages, $265 list
Comprehensive Textbook of Genitourinary Oncology was the first major textbook to focus on the field of genitourinary oncology from the combined perspectives of the molecular biologist, pathologist, oncologist and urologist. The first edition of the book had three fundamental goals: 1) to be a textbook that could be read and used by practicing physicians, 2) to be an authoritative textbook for basic scientists, 3) to be an effective interpretation of this field for trainees in surgery, medical and radiation oncology, and pathology. The goals for the 4th edition remain essentially the same. The book takes a systems approach to this field, with sections on prostate, bladder, kidney, testis, and penile cancers, as well as one each on pediatric and other (less common) malignancies. This volume will introduce and distill the combined knowledge and expertise of specialist from a multitude of scientific and clinical disciplines who are internationally recognized leaders in their fields and who themselves have contributed to the field. As in the last edition, authors will be drawn form the fields of urological surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology as well as translational scientists and epidemiologists.
Shah: Prostate Biopsy Interpretation
By Rajal Shah
2011 (1st ed), 201 pages, 199 illus, $139 list
This book covers all the practical issues related to the interpretation of prostatic biopsies in day-to-day practice, including: biopsy sampling and processing; the diagnosis of limited cancer; differentiation of prostate cancers from benign lesions and recognition of histologic variants; the recognition and clinical significance of "atypical" diagnoses and HGPIN; the identification of recently described entities; the contemporary approach to Gleason grading; the utility of immunohistochemical markers and emerging molecular markers; and the reporting of prostate biopsies. The book contains numerous carefully selected, high-quality color images and uses algorithms, flow charts, and tables to simulate the thought and decision-making process upon encountering common clinical scenarios during sign-out of prostate biopsy.
Truong: Frozen Section Library: Genitourinary Tract
By Luan Truong
2009 (1st ed), 178 pages, 174 illus, $80 list
As a handbook for practicing pathologists, these books will be indispensable aids to diagnosis and avoiding dangers in one of the most challenging situations that pathologists encounter. Rapid consideration of differential diagnoses and how to avoid traps caused by frozen section artifacts will be readily accessible to the users of the handbooks. A series of concise, easy-to-use, well-illustrated handbooks alleviates the often frustrating and time-consuming, sometimes futile, process of searching through bulky textbooks that are unlikely to illustrate or discuss pathologic diagnoses from the perspective of frozen sections in the first place. Tables and charts will provide guidance for differential diagnosis of various histologic patterns.
Ulbright: Tumors of the Testis, Adnexa, Spermatic Cord, and Scrotum (Vol 25)
By Thomas M. Ulbright, Mahul B. Amin and Robert H. Young
1999, 385 pages, $90 list
A number of important advances have been made in testicular tumor pathology since the publication of the 2nd series fascicle, Tumors of the Male Genital System, necessitating a separate atlas devoted to the testis, its adnexa, spermatic cord, and scrotum to incorporate this new information. The publication of this work is timely, as the incidence of testicular cancer in many countries continues to increase. Because of the need for effective, yet different, therapeutic approaches for many entities, accurate pathologic interpretation of these tumors, most of which occur in young patients, is of paramount importance.This atlas emphasizes the differential diagnosis of testicular tumors. It begins with a consideration of general aspects, including epidemiology, followed by a discussion of the histogenesis of germ cell tumors, including the lesion known as “intratubular germ cell neoplasia, unclassified type.” Typical seminoma is considered and illustrated in detail, as well as variants such as tubular seminoma, seminoma with cribriform patterns, spermatocytic seminoma, and spermato-cytic seminoma with sarcoma. Also thoroughly covered are nonseminomatous germ cell tumors and sex cord-stromal tumors. An entire chapter is devoted to the many non-neoplastic lesions of this region that are, in some instances, easily misinterpreted as neoplastic. The final chapter is devoted to the scrotum. Newer diagnostic approaches, e.g., immunohistochemical and molecular analyses, are discussed as supplemental methods; however, the emphasis of this work remains routine light-microscopic interpretation. Where appropriate, the diagnostic utility of ultrastructure is considered. In addition the clinical significance of each lesion is discussed. This 385-page atlas, written by three pathologists with extensive experience evaluating testicular pathology includes 535 color and 42 halftone illustrations. Every effort has been made to include the most current references as well as important contributions from the older literature.

Young: Tumors of the Prostate Gland, Seminal Vesicles, Male Urethra, and Penis (Vol 28)
By Robert H. Young, John R. Srigley, Mahul B. Amin, Thomas M. Ulbright, and Anthony L Cubilla
2000, 512 pages, $105 list
Many important advances have been made in the publication of the second series fascicle on this topic in 1973. The publication of this work is especially timely given the explosion of interest in the pathology of the prostate gland, and the current large volume of difficult prostatic biopsy specimens. Although accounting for a much lesser number of specimens, the pathology of the seminal vesicles, male urethra, and penis provides diverse challenges in interpretation. Furthermore, carcinoma of the penis, which is relatively common in certain parts of the world, has been the subject of a number of important recent studies. Accurate pathologic interpretations of all the entities that may be encountered in these regions, and the sometimes challenging distinction between benign and malignant, have major therapeutic implications.This fascicle emphasizes the differential diagnosis of carcinoma of the organs considered, particularly the distinction of carcinoma from mimics of cancer, tumor grading, and pathologic information of prognostic significance. It begins with a consideration of the normal anatomy and histology of the prostate gland followed by discussion of prostatic hyperplasia and the precursors of prostatic adenocarcinoma. The ensuing three chapters discuss conventional carcinoma of the prostate gland, variants of prostatic cancer, and miscellaneous other prostatic tumors. The final chapter on the prostate reviews in detail the numerous benign proliferations that may potentially be misinterpreted as neoplastic. Individual chapters are devoted to the seminal vesicles, male urethra, and penis. The emphasis of this work remains routine light-microscopic interpretation, which is diagnostic in the great majority of cases. The role of immunochemistry is emphasized where appropriate, for example, in the evaluation of problematic prostate proliferations and in confirming the prostate cell type of certain benign and malignant lesions. This 512-page fascicle, written by five pathologists with extensive experience evaluating genitourinary pathology, includes 835 color and 83 halftone illustrations. Every effort has been made to include the most current references as well as important contributions from the older literature.
