Allan: Cancer Stem Cells in Solid Tumors
By Alison L. Allan
2011, 492 pages, $209 list
The “cancer stem cell” hypothesis postulates that cancer arises from a subpopulation of tumor-initiating cells or cancer stem cells (CSCs). While the idea of cancer stem cells has been around for more than a hundred years, evidence from the fields of hematology and cancer biology has now demonstrated the critical role of stem cells in hematological malignancies and suggested that these same mechanisms are also central to the initiation, progression, and treatment of solid cancers. Clinical and experimental studies have shown that CSCs exhibit many classical properties of normal stem cells, including a high self-renewal capacity and the ability to generate heterogeneous lineages; the requirement for a specific “niche”/microenvironment to grow; and an increased capacity for self-protection against harsh environments, toxins, and drugs. Cancer Stem Cells in Solid Tumors represents a detailed overview of cancer stem cells and their role in solid cancers. Comprised of 24 chapters, this volume will provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of this important and evolving field.

Battifora: Tumors of the Serosal Membranes (Vol 15)
By Hector Battifora and W.T. Elliott McCaughey
1995, 128 pages, $45 list
Since the appearance of the second series fascicle on this topic, there has been considerable growth in our knowledge of these neoplasms, including wider recognition of types of mesothelioma with unusual microscopic features or behavioral patterns. Recent progress in the application of immunohistochemistry has led to more accurate histological diagnosis of mesothelioma and has made it easier to recognize those nonmesothelial tumors mimicking mesothelioma. Nonetheless, hematoxylin and eosin-stained preparations remain the mainstay of diagnosis of serous membrane tumors. Thus, due emphasis is placed on conventional histological findings in this new fascicle, while at the same time expanding the coverage of important diagnostic tests such as immunohistochemistry. In addition to the malignant mesotheliomas, attention is given to other mesothelial-related tumors such as primary serous papillary carcinoma of the peritoneum, multicystic mesothelioma, intra-abdominal desmoplastic round cell tumor, adenomatoid tumor, localized fibrous tumor, and the so-called mesothelioma of the atrioventricular node. Concise tables depict such features as: the differential diagnosis of diffuse malignant mesothelioma; the comparison of histologic features of mesothelial hyperplasia, mesothelioma, and carcinoma; and the immunohistochemistry of peritoneal mesothelioma and serous carcinoma. The fascicle is 128 pages long and includes over 150 illustrations, 104 of which are in color. It should be an essential reference for pathologists in practice and in training.

Braunstein: Thyroid Cancer
By Glenn Braunstein
2011, 332 pages, 135 illus, $219 list
The American Cancer Society recently estimated that about 45,000 new cases of thyroid cancer will be diagnosed in the United States, with three-quarters occurring in women. The overall 5-year survival rate is about 97%, making it one of the least lethal cancers. We are experiencing an epidemic of well-differentiated thyroid cancer, in part due to the widespread use of imaging modalities that detect thyroid nodules and microcarcinomas. Concurrently, there have been a number of recent advances in surgical treatment, as well as diagnostic modalities that allow us to detect small amounts of residual local and metastatic disease. Additionally, a reexamination of past treatment regimens has led to new recommendations regarding the use of radioactive iodine, and to new therapeutic options, such as targeted therapy which have supplanted the use of more toxic chemotherapy for metastatic cancer. Multiple academic organizations have developed consensus guidelines for the management of thyroid cancer, occasionally with conflicting recommendations. In Thyroid Cancer, a renowned group of authors presents a broad overview of the pathology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of thyroid cancer, with an emphasis on recent evidence-based information. State-of-the-art and a significant contribution to the literature, Thyroid Cancer is an invaluable reference for endocrinologists, oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, radiation oncologists, primary care physicians, and surgeons who deal with head and neck cancer.

Churg: Tumors of Serosal Membranes (Vol 3)
By Andrew Churg, Philip T. Cagle, and Victor L.Roggli
2006, 147 pages, $75 list
The pathologist who sees specimens from lesions of the serosal membranes (pleura, pericardium, peritoneum, and tunica vaginalis) is well aware that these cases, whether in the form of fluid cytologies, small biopsies, or major resections, pose differential diagnostic problems that are among the most difficult in anatomic pathology. The main problems involve the separation of malignant mesothelioma from benign mesothelial processes on the one hand and other malignant tumors (particularly primary and metastatic carcinomas) on the other. With these differential diagnoses in mind, Drs. Churg, Cagle, and Roggli concentrate on the cytopathologic and histopathologic features of diffuse malignant mesothelioma, its many variants, and the other benign and malignant lesions to be distinguished from it. Histochemical, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural and molecular features of potential use in this differentiation are discussed and illustrated. Common differential diagnostic problems and their solutions take precedence, but all of the known benign and malignant lesions of serosal membranes are covered, with copious illustrations and the latest available references. Epidemiologic, pathogenetic, clinical, radiographic and gross pathologic features are integrated with the discussions of these entities. This will be the most complete source available on this topic for years to come.

Cooper: Muscle Biopsy
By Carsten Cooper
2015, 166 pages, $90 list
The increased knowledge of the genetic basis of a broad range of muscle diseases has led to a dramatic alteration in the investigation of muscle diseases. Muscle biopsy has become a strong instrument not just to provide diagnosis, but to make tissue accessible for genetic studies, and to elementary scientists for biomedical research, as well as to examine mitochondrial dysfunction and the mitochondrial DNA integrity in oxidation. Precise interpretation of muscle biopsy to catch cell dysfunction/damage/death or absence/abnormality of a protein or genetic defect by the sophisticated technologies is crucial to direct the diagnosis of different muscle disorders. This book discusses the process and interpretation of muscle biopsy, its applications in the culture of myotubes and membrane transport studies. It discusses the developments in the elementary techniques of muscle biopsy for a neuroscientist, as well as, explores phosphorylation in different disorders like obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and peripheral vascular disease, with comprehensive descriptions on methodology.

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.

Dickson: Neurodegeneration: The Molecular Pathology of Dementia and Movement Disorders
By Dennis Dickson
2011 (2nd ed), 496 pages, $276 list
Most textbooks on neurodegenerative disorders have used a classification scheme based upon either clinical syndromes or anatomical distribution of the pathology.

Elder: Melanocytic Tumors of the Skin (Vol 12)
By David E. Elder, George F. Murphy
2010, 468 pages, $165 list
In surgical pathology practice, distinguishing malignant from benign melanocytic lesions represents one of the major problem areas. Failure to diagnose a malignant melanoma can have catastrophic results, but separating melanomas from their simulants is often difficult, and over-diagnosis of melanoma is also inappropriate. This fascicle presents a comprehensive account of benign and malignant melanocytic lesions. The benign lesions encompass the major simulants of melanoma. In addition, some of them, such as dysplastic nevi, have significance as markers of individuals at increased risk for the development of melanoma. It has become ever more apparent, especially with the recent advent of molecular classification, that melanoma is not one disease, and that prognosis in melanoma can vary considerably from lesions that present minimal risk, to dangerous malignancies at opposite ends of a spectrum. The details of therapy for these lesions are very different and are determined for the most part by their diagnostic and prognostic features as judged by microscopy. This fascicle explains in detail the use of attributes for microstaging and for prediction of prognosis in melanoma, including discussion of the latest AJCC staging system. More importantly, however, it provides a richly illustrated roadmap for diagnosis of the entire spectrum of melanocytic tumors. Discussion of the lesions is firmly grounded in their clinical significance, with detailed descriptions of clinical features often accompanied by clinical images. Lesions in general are illustrated in multiple microscopic images ranging from scanning magnification to high power. Cytologic as well as architectural features are clearly delineated. Pathophysiology, epidemiology, and molecular attributes are also discussed. This work will serve as a comprehensive text for learning on the part of trainees, and also as an invaluable diagnostic reference for more experienced diagnosticians in daily practice.
Elder: Melanocytic Tumors of the Skin (Vol 2)
By David E. Elder and George F. Murphy
1992, 216 pages, $45 list
The new Fascicle concerning Melanocytic Tumors of the Skin follows an identical style and format as its companion on non-melanocytic skin tumors (Fascicle I in this series). Particular emphasis has been placed on presenting descriptions and diagnostic criteria for commonly encountered entities, as well as those rare disorders that often escape mention in conventional texts, e.g. neurotropic malignant melanoma, deep penetrating nevus, and nevi of genital skin. As in Fascicle 1, all disorders are presented according to their salient structural features at scanning magnification as well as at higher magnification for diagnostically critical points. Areas that readers may find particularly useful include: definitive description and clinicopathologic criteria for diagnosis of dysplastic nevi; comprehensive description of nevus and melanoma variants; an extensive discussion of Spitz nevi and variants; meaning, significance, and criteria for diagnosis of minimal deviation mela-noma; and current use of monoclonal antibodies in diagnosis of melanoma. The text is extensive and replete with comparative and summary tables, e.g. Spitz nevus vs. melanoma. The sections on malignant melanoma not only include comprehensive rosters of diagnostic and grading criteria, but also detailed charts and tables from the extensive experience of the Pigmented Lesion Study Group and Database at the University of Pennsylvania that enable prediction of outcome based on morphologic features. This model should promote precision and consistency in melanoma diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. The clinical and microscopic illustrations are of the high quality that have been synonymous with this series. Dermatologists as well as pathologists will find it indispensable.

Fisher: Advances in Melanoma, An Issue of Hematology/Oncology Clinics
By David Fisher
2009 (1st ed), 240 pages, $90 list
The field of melanoma biology has experienced a remarkable surge in recent years, owing to progress which has ranged from the most basic laboratory/preclinical discoveries to clinical developments that have begun to transform the management and prognosis for at least certain melanoma patients. Among the key areas that have contributed to this progress are studies relating to signaling and transcriptional pathways that regulate control over differentiation and survival of the melanocyte lineage. The identification of recurring activating mutations in specific signaling factors (B-RAF, N-Ras, c-KIT), amplification of other melanoma oncogenes (MITF, NEDD9), and the crucial recognition that certain of these genomic events occur within melanomas arising with specific clinical features (eg mucosal or acral origin) have led to clear recognition that melanoma is indeed “many different diseases.”

Font: Tumors of the Eye and Ocular Adnexa (AFIP Atlas of Tumor Pathology, Series 4, Vol 5)
By Ramon L Font, J Oscar Craxatto and Narsing A Rao
2006 (1st ed), 339 pages, $135 list
When a specimen representing a tumor or tumor-like lesion of the eye or ocular adnexa is received in most general surgical pathology laboratories, the immediate reaction is one of panic, because these tumors are rarely encountered and often require complex gross dissections, based on a knowledge of ocular anatomy, which most general surgical pathologists either never possessed or have long since forgotten. Drs. Font, Croxatto, and Rao state that their main objective is to emphasize the important features of these lesions that are of special interest to general and surgical pathologists. In addition to providing complete descriptions of the tumors and tumor-like lesions in the various compartments of the eye and ocular adnexa, the authors correlate the pathologic features with epidemiologic and pathogenetic observations, clinical features, differential diagnosis, and special studies including immunohistochemistry and various molecular approaches. Each anatomic site has a section on normal anatomy and histology, and there is a separate chapter on the pathologic examination of ocular specimens, so that the general pathologist can approach these uncommonly encountered specimens with confidence. Because of its scholarly, practical, well illustrated and well referenced approach, this work will appeal to pathologists and ophthalmologists alike.
