Gamble: Pathology of the Kidney in Dysproteinemia
By Charles Gamble
2011, 134 pages, 700 illus, $70 list
Pathology of the Kidney in Dysproteinemia is an academic monograph describing in detail the causes and development of structural and functional changes in the human kidney resulting from the deposition of abnormal circulating serum proteins. The material presented was obtained from 147 cases of renal involvement associated with Dysproteinemia encountered in university and community hospital settings. The described entities account for 4.5% of 3.260 biopsies of native kidneys examined over a period of approximately 25 years. While some of the lesions are quite rare, others are relatively common and seen fairly frequently in a reasonably busy renal biopsy service. Together they constitute a group of extremely interesting lesions in terms of immunology, morphology, and pathogenesis. This book should be of interest to pathologists- especially renal pathologists, immunologists, and internists. Both general internists and sub-specialists in nephrology and hematology will find this volume useful, as will medical residents and medical technologists in these various specialties. As a monograph it is user-friendly, since the subject matter is sufficiently circumscribed to permit expanded or detailed visual and textual treatment of specific lesions in a single easy-to-wield volume.

Kazakov: Cutaneous Adnexal Tumors
By Dmitry Kazakov
2012 (1st ed), 830 pages, $380 list
Adnexal tumors of the skin are complex, with confusing nomenclature. Many lesions show marked variation in histological appearance and there is considerable morphological overlap between different entities. These tumors are relatively rare, compared for example with melanocytic lesions, but still are part of everyday routine work for all histopathologists. Therefore, many general pathologists (the majority of whom are obliged to report dermatopathology specimens) are unfamiliar with the topic and even the experts have difficulties with the more challenging cases. Although the majority of adnexal tumors represent benign lesions, malignant counterparts do occur and these often represent a diagnostic pitfall. There are many inherited syndromes in which cutaneous adnexal tumors are a feature, and failure to recognize these associations may have serious implications. The proposed book will be comprehensive and will include all recognized variants covering the broad spectrum of adnexal tumor pathology. Included will also be chapters dealing with site-specific lesions such as the eyelid, neck, navel, anogenital areas, etc. The format will be extremely user-friendly comprising succinct text and comprehensive microscopic illustrations. The scope will be such that any variation on the theme of adnexal tumor pathology will be readily available at a glance. The text will be structured as follows: clinical features, histology, immunohistochemistry, genetic features and differential diagnosis.

2001, 507 pages, $105 list
The field of soft tissue tumors is complex and challenging because of the large number of soft tissue tumor types; the often, and subtle, histologic differences between them; and the rarity of many soft tissue neoplasms. This AFIP fascicle provides a practical approach to the diagnosis of soft tissue tumors as well as a comprehensive morphological description and differential diagnosis for each of the well-characterized tumor types. Pertinent clinical and prognostic information accompanies the description of each tumor. Diagnostically useful immunohistochemical staining patterns and cytogenetic abnormalities with potential diagnostic utility are an integral part of the discussion. The following are a few of the topics discussed in detail: The importance of utilizing a managerial as well as a scientific classification when reporting on soft tissue tumors. Distinguishing morphologically bland, but clinically malignant, lesions such as low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma from benign mimics. The reasons for retaining the category of the so-called fibrous histiocytomas. Myxoid lesions of the soft tissue. Atypical lipomatous tumors and dedifferentiated liposarcomas. Spindle cell/pleomorphic lipoma vs atypical lipomatous tumor. Problematic smooth muscle tumors of the soft tissues and retroperitoneum. The differential diagnosis of small round blue cell tumors. Tumors of the soft tissues with constituent cells of an epithelioid phenotype. The morphologic features most useful in classifying vascular tumors. With 696 color illustrations and a comprehensive 507-page text, this fascicle represents a major source of information about soft tissue tumors.

Kumar: The Molecular Biology of Chronic Heart Failure
By Dhavendra Kumar
2013 (1st ed), 88 pages, $40 list
The clinical syndrome of chronic heart failure (CHF) is the hallmark of progressive cardiac decompensation, one of the most common chronic medical conditions that affect around 2% of the adult population worldwide irrespective of ethnic and geographic origin (Anonymous). Apart from ischemic heart disease, hypertension, infection, and inflammation, several other etiologic factors account for irreparable and irreversible myocardial damage leading to heart failure (HF). Genetic and genomic factors are now increasingly identified as one of the leading underlying factors (Arab and Liu 2005). These factors may be related to pathogenic alterations (mutation or polymorphism) within specific cardiac genes, mutations in genes incorporating single or multiple molecular pathways (protein families) relevant to cardiac structure and/or function, genetic or genomic polymorphisms of uncertain significance (gene variants, single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), and copy number variations (CNVs)), and epigenetic or epigenomic changes that influence cardiac gene functions scattered across the human genome. Recent genetic and genomic studies in both systolic and diastolic ventricular dysfunction, the hallmark of CHF, have revealed a number of mutations in genes belonging to specific cardiac protein families.

Louis: Non-Neoplastic Diseases of the Central Nervous System (Vol 8)
By David N. Louis, Matthew P. Frosch, Hernando Mena, Elisabeth J. Rushing, Alexander R. Judkins
2010, 444 pages, $145 list
Of the various subspecialty areas in anatomic pathology, neuropathology tends to be one of the least familiar to general pathologists. Most surgical pathologists at institutions with neurosurgical practices gain quick familiarity with the common tumors of the central nervous system. Non-neoplastic diseases of the central nervous system, however, continue to remain a mystery to surgical pathologists, since non-neoplastic diseases of the nervous system represent a wide spectrum of relatively uncommon diseases that are not often biopsied. This Fascicle has been biased toward diseases that may be encountered in surgical pathology practice. Moreover, the authors have tried to illustrate as many entities as possible with surgical material, and have used autopsy brains primarily to illustrate key macroscopic features of some diseases. Readers will find the book of use and comfort as they realize that the brain biopsy in front of them is not from a familiar neoplasm, but from one of the sometimes challenging and always fascinating non-neoplastic diseases of the central nervous system.
