Most textbooks include a limited number of images of the more common diagnoses (usually only one or two images), but this book includes a minimum of at least 5 images per diagnosis. Overall, the book includes over 2,431 stunning pathologic and radiographic images, along with several high-color medical illustrations. Each image is carefully annotated to highlight the elements that are most diagnostically significant. Many of the diagnoses discussed in this book contain images from entities in the differential diagnosis that allow for easy and quick comparisons when considering more than one diagnosis. In addition, ancillary techniques such as immunohistochemistry, molecular, and cytology are included for those neoplasms that may require other techniques in their work up.

Reichert: Diagnostic Gynecologic and Obstetric Pathology
By Roger Reichert
2011, 648 pages, 1600 illus, $256 list
In covering the topic of gynecologic and obstetric pathology, this book attempts to carve out its own niche midway between an atlas and a traditional textbook. The gross and microscopic images in this atlas are presented exclusively in color, and are supplemented by pertinent clinical information and discussions of differential diagnostic considerations. When deemed appropriate, images of immunohistochemical and special stains are included. To further enhance their visual appeal and the overall learning experience, many images in this book are presented with annotations and/or in composite form, and selected images have been enlarged. This image-intensive textbook also includes numerous Pap smear images and cytologic-histologic correlations. In addition to coverage of pathology of the organs of the female genital tract, brief overviews of the normal histology of these sites are provided as necessary background information. Separate chapters are also devoted to placental and peritoneal pathology. There is an emphasis on diagnostic-related issues pertaining to common lesions and their variants, although classic forms of rare lesions are also presented. In selected instances, recommendations on the processing of gross pathology specimens, discussions regarding the optimal approach for intraoperative consultations, and recommendations on the phrasing of key portions of pathology reports are provided.

Schniederjan: Biopsy Interpretation of the Central Nervous System
By Matthew Schniederjan
2011, 360 pages, 320 illus, $164 list
This new book carries on a strong tradition of diagnostically oriented texts established by the Biopsy Interpretation Series, in the present case focused on lesions of the Central Nervous System. Our purpose is to provide a practical guide and concise reference that can be a companion text for the general surgical pathologist, trainees in pathology and neuropathology, and clinicians who treat patients with neurological diseases that require surgical sampling. Given the heavy orientation of the Biopsy Interpretation Series to the busy and serious-minded diagnostician, we have taken this opportunity to create something new and, we think, useful. While there are certainly several excellent books on neuropathology and surgical neuropathology, the majority are reference texts that are comprehensive and encyclopedic, making them less than optimal on a daily basis to assist with interpretation. Because the central concern here is with establishing the correct diagnosis, the content is aimed at anticipating difficult diagnostic decisions and providing concise and reliable guide to their resolution.
Schnitt: Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast
By Stuart Schnitt
2012 (2nd ed), 512 pages, 300 illus, $164 list
A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this new edition of Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to that in which they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped together according to their histologic patterns rather than by the traditional benign-malignant categorization in order to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides on a daily basis. The role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems in breast pathology is emphasized where appropriate.
In addition, the clinical significance and impact on patient management of the various diagnoses are discussed and key clinical and management points highlighted.

By Edward Stelow
2012 (2nd ed), 224 pages, 300 illus, $164 list

Sun: Flow Cytometry, Immunohistochemistry, and Molecular Genetics for Hematologic Neoplasms
By Tsieh Sun
2011 (2nd ed), 432 pages, 425 illus, $225 list
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.
