Matthews: DNA Repair of Cancer Stem Cells
By Lesley A Mathews, Stephanie M Cabarcas, Elain Hurt
2012, 184 pages, $189 list
The existence of ‘cancer stem cells’ (CSCs) has been a topic of heated debate for the last few years within the field of cancer biology. Their continuous characterization in a variety of solid tumors has lead to an abundance of evidence supporting their existence. CSCs are believed to be responsible for resistance against conventional treatment regimes of chemotherapy and radiation, ultimately, leading to metastasis and patient demise. To help aid clinicians, pharmaceutical companies and academic labs investigating how to better kill these highly aggressive cells we have summarized the DNA repair mechanism(s) and their role in the maintenance and regulation of both normal and cancer stem cells. Our book represents a comprehensive investigation into the highly effective DNA repair mechanisms of CSCs and what we need to understand in order to develop more advanced therapies to eradicate them from patients. Currently, there are no other published works entirely on DNA repair and Cancer Stem Cells. In addition, our book provides a comprehensive overview of CSC isolation and characterization from a variety of solid tumor types.

Miller: Modern Surgical Neuropathology
By Douglas Miller
2009 (1st ed), 536 pages, 1200 illus, $305 list
The nervous system constitutes arguably the most complex organ system in the human body, which contributes to the over-susceptibility of disease in this area. Although brain tumors were once an automatic death sentence, the outlook for recovery has brightened significantly in the past decade. The pathologist plays an indispensable role in surgical diagnosis; he or she must accurately diagnose a potentially wide array of disease entities, determine the spread of disease within millimeters, and assess patient prognosis. This new and modern reference in neuropathology comprehensively covers all the methods used by pathologists to accurately diagnose a wide array of neurologic illnesses. Brain and spinal cord tumors are the predominant focus, but a full spectrum of infectious, inflammatory, and congenital disorders are also covered in detail, in both pediatric and adult populations, with a full range of diagnostic modalities.
Mills: Histology for Pathologists
By Stacy Mills
2012 (4th ed), 1328 pages, 2130 illus, $279 list
A strong grounding in basic histology is essential for all pathologists. However, there had always been a gap between histology and pathology in which histologic information specifically for the pathologist was often lacking. Histology for Pathologists deals with the microscopic features of normal human tissues, from the perspective of the surgical pathologist. This is the only text that uses human (vs. animal) tissues for the histology. It is the best reference in the literature for information on normal histology, and, as such, is essential for all clinical pathologists. Written by pathologists for pathologists, the new edition updates the pathologist's understanding of normal histology up to date with the incremental advances made in the last five years. The 3rd edition has become a "classic" purchased by virtually all residents beginning their pathology training, as well as pathologists in practice. The 4th edition builds on that substantial foundation. The table of contents remains essentially the same with the exception of some changes in authorship.
Mills: Tumors of the Upper Aerodigestive Tract and Ear (Vol 26)
By Stacey E. Mills, Michael J. Gaffey and Henry F. Frierson, Jr.
2000, 450 pages, $95 list
Although many tumors of the upper respiratory tract are squamous cell carcinomas, the varied tissues of this region can give rise to a bewildering array of neoplasms. Even the recognition of squamous cell carcinoma can be quite challenging if one is confronted with a diagnostically problematic variant form. This 450-page fascicle is based on the extensive experience of three surgical pathologists who have frequently dealt with these problems, both in consultation material and in the day-to-day diagnostic challenges of a busy, nationally recognized ENT surgery service. This text reviews the full spectrum of neoplasms and neoplasmlike entities arising in the head and neck region, including the ear. (Salivary gland neoplasms have been discussed in a separate fascicle.) There are 544 high-quality 4-color and 49 halftone illustrations. Emphasis is placed on a pragmatic approach to differential diagnosis, with ample discussion of clinical features as well as ancillary diagnostic techniques, including immunohistochemistry. The fascicle begins with a review of pertinent normal anatomy and histology. The clinically and diagnostically significant variants of benign squamous neoplasia, squamous dysplasia, and squamous cell carcinoma are reviewed in detail, with appropriate emphasis on diagnostic pitfalls and their avoidance. The spectrum of non-salivary glandular neoplasms, including intestinal-type carcinomas, is presented. Entire chapters are devoted to variants of neural and neuroendocrine neoplasia as well as lymphoid neoplasms of this region. In the latter chapter, for example, the often confusing topic of T/NK cell lymphoma and the bewildering array of prior terms and concepts applied to this process are discussed in detail. Separate chapters also are devoted to vascular, fibrous, osseous, germ cell, and miscellaneous soft tissue tumors that predilect or exclusively involve this region. An additional chapter discusses diagnostically problematic tumorlike lesions, including necrotizing sialometaplasia, myospherulosis, respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma, teflon granuloma, rhinoscleroma, and similar topics. The fascicle concludes with an extensive review of benign and malignant tumors of the external, middle, and inner ear. This book should serve as an invaluable resource for pathologists confronted with these common and often troublesome specimens.

Murphy: Non-Melanocytic Tumors of the Skin (Vol 1)
By George F. Murphy and David E. Elder
1991, 278 pages, $45 list
Since the last AFIP Fascicle on Tumors of the Skin, three decades have witnessed revolutionary advances in dermatopathology. The new fascicle concerning non-melanocytic tumors of the skin has sought to capture the spirit of these advances and display them in a form that is user friendly. Major subject categories include tumors of: epidermal keratinocytes; cutaneous eccrine, apocrine, and pilosebaceous adnexae; hematopoietic cells; fibrohistiocytic, neural, vascular, and smooth muscle lineage; and metastatic neoplasms to skin. Up-to-date technologies relevant to practical diagnostic issues are described and illustrated, e.g., in situ hybridiza-tion for detection of specific HPV types and Southern blot analysis for determi-nation of gene rearrangements in cutaneous Iymphoma. Ample use of differential diagnostic tables and charts facilitate rapid and efficient extraction of essential information and criteria, e.g., keratoacanthoma vs. cup-shaped squamous cell carcinoma, differential diagnosis of verrucous epidermal hyperplasia, differential diagnosis of spindle cell malignancies of skin, and benign Iymphoid hyperplasia vs. Iymphoma cutis. The numerous photomicrographs are generally grouped in clusters that illustrate progressive magnifications or important histologic, side-by-side comparisons. Attempts have been made to simplify nomenclature, in spite of the extraordinary proliferation of new entities that has typified the last few decades in dermatopathology. Areas that readers may find particularly useful include: extensive discussion of adnexal carcinoma; comprehensive and technologically up-to-date evaluation of Iympho-prolifera-tive neoplasia; detailed description and illustration of Kaposi sarcoma, includ-ing evolutionary stages; new diagnostic details for neuroendocrine carcinoma; and cutaneous and subcutaneous neo-plasia in children. The quality of both clinical and microscopic illustrations is outstanding in this first fascicle of the Third Series of the AFIP Tumor Atlas. Dermatologists as well as pathologists will find it indispensable.

O'Malley: Benign and Reactive Conditions of Lymph Node and Spleen (Vol 7)
By Dennis P. O'Malley, Tracy I. George, Attilo Orazi, Susan L. Abbondanzo
2009, 572 pages, $165 list
One of the main reasons that this Fascicle was undertaken is that for some years there has been no single, up-to-date book containing extensive information on benign and reactive lymphoid conditions. Although malignant processes garner the majority of attention, it is the benign processes that have an underlying complexity that is often an illustration of the delicate interplay of many components of the active immune system. In diagnosing the pathologic specimen, a basic approach is: 1) to determine if the process is benign or malignant, 2) if malignant, to characterize the origin of the malignancy, and 3) to subclassify or identify the process. In some cases, the first part—the question of benign versus malignant—cannot be resolved by histomorphologic evaluation alone. The second part of the approach has become considerably easier with the advent of immunophenotypic analysis. The final issue, that of identification of the pathologic process, may be of greater or lesser importance, depending on the clinical situation. If an exact diagnosis can be made, it can have several benefits. In the case of neoplastic processes, it may indicate the type of treatment and the prognosis. In benign processes, there are other important benefits as well. Although some therapies may be instituted in benign conditions, often simply naming a thing can have great benefit to the patient. It is important to realize that even in the case of a purely reactive process, finding a name, a category, a classification, can provide real peace-of-mind to the patient. As American Journal of Clinical Pathology declares, “The hundreds of images are the greatest asset of this book. There are extraordinary renditions of such exquisite classic (yet rarely illustrated) entities: ‘sago’ and ‘lardaceous’ spleens, ‘lollipop’ and ‘explosive’ lymphoid follicles, multinucleated measles cells and hyperplastic mesothelial inclusions, and sundry mystifying diseases, including those known eponymously: Kawasaki, Kikuchi, and Kimura.” Am J Clin Pathol 2010; 133:818 For pathologists, and hematopathologists specifically, Drs. O’Malley, George, Orazi, and Abbondanzo have created a book that will serve for years as a useful guide to the multifaceted world of benign and reactive lesions of the lymphoid system.

Scatena: Advances in Cancer Stem Cell Biology
By Roberto Scatena, Alvaro Mordente, Bruno Giardina
2011, 355 pages, $189 list
In recent years, cancer stem cells have been recognized as important component in carcinogenesis and they seem to form the basis of many (if not all) tumor types. Cancer stem cells or "cancer cell like stem cells" have been isolated from various cancers of different origin (blood, breast, brain, skin, head and neck, thyroid, cervix, lung, retina, colon, pancreas and so on). Cancer stem cells - rare cells with indefinite proliferative potential that drive the formation and growth of tumours- seem to show intriguing relationships with physiological stem cells. Specifically, these cancer cells show significant similarities in the mechanisms that regulate self-renewal of normal stem cells. Moreover, tumour cells might directly arise from normal stem cells. Further, the cellular biology of cancer stem cells show a lot of similarities with normal stem cells.

By Bernd W. Scheithauer, James M. Woodruff and Robert A. Erlandson
1999, 421 pages, $95 list
Since publications if the 2nd series fascicle on Tumors of the Peripheral Nervous System, the spectrum of the nerve pathology has markedly expanded. Newly described lesions in this 3rd series fascicle are numerous. Among tumorlike lesions are reactive processes such as inflammatory pseudotumor, hyperplastic lesions including palisaded encapsulate neuroma, and localized hypertrophic neuromuscular choistoma. Benign tumors are cellular schwannoma , a lesion frequently mistaken for malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, psammomatous melanotic schwannoma with or without a syndrome association (Carney's complex), intraneural perineurioma, and neurothekeoma. Also described since publications of the 2nd series fascicle are such malignant neoplasma ap purely epithelioid malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, glanduar MPNST, MPNSTs derived from schwannoma, and MPNST with perineurial differentiation. The last chapter provides,heavily illustrated presentation of neuroofibromatosis . In order to provide insight the evolution of peripheral nerve lesions, the fascilce begins with a concise, richly illustrated introductory chapter on normal gross and microscopic anatomy of the peripheral nervous system. In typical fascicle format, pathologic features are presented in terms of their gross, histologic, and immunochemical aspects. In addition, the fascicle stresses the utility of electron microscopy in elucidating the nature of lesions and in differential diagnosis. The application of this modality has contributed immensely to our understanding of the normal structure and function of the peripheral nervous system. Practicality, long the hallmark of the Atlas series, is the thrust of this work. Valuable epidemiologic, clinical, and even neruroradiologic correlation is provided, as is clinically correlative data regarding prognostic indicators and syndrome association. This 421-page fascilce includes over 900 illustrations, 841 of which are in color. It should be an essential reference for pathologists in practice and training.

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.

The most significant change was the subtyping by the WHO of tumors of the thymus that do not cause constitutional changes. The present Fascicle has adopted the WHO system of classification. For pathologists who are not as familiar with the WHO system, the authors extensively explain and illustrate both the morphologic and histogenetic classification systems that are its bases. Due to the changes in nomenclature, the chapter on thymic epithelial tumors has been considerably revised. The main diagnostic terms are presented along with the previous conventional morphologic and histogenetic terms, for the readers’ sake. Newly recognized tumor entities, new cytologic and genetic findings, and recent references have been added. Tables have been revised to reflect new data on survival, staging, and classification.

Sloan: Medical Malpractice
By Frank Sloan
2010, 472 pages, $21 list
Most experts would agree that the current medical malpractice system in the United States does not work effectively either to compensate victims fairly or prevent injuries caused by medical errors. Policy responses to a series of medical malpractice crises have not resulted in effective reform and have not altered the fundamental incentives of the stakeholders. In Medical Malpractice, economist Frank Sloan and lawyer Lindsey Chepke examine the U.S. medical malpractice process from legal, medical, economic, and insurance perspectives, analyze past efforts at reform, and offer realistic, achievable policy recommendations. They review the considerable empirical evidence in a balanced fashion and assess objectively what works in the current system and what does not. Sloan and Chepke argue that the complexity of medical malpractice stems largely from the interaction of the four discrete markets that determine outcomes--legal, medical malpractice insurance, medical care, and government activity. After describing what the evidence shows about the functioning of medical malpractice, types of defensive medicine, and the effects of past reforms, they examine such topics as scheduling damages as an alternative to flat caps, jury behavior, health courts, incentives to prevent medical errors, insurance regulation, reinsurance, no-fault insurance, and suggestions for future reforms. Medical Malpractice is the most comprehensive treatment of malpractice available, integrating findings from several different areas of research and describing them accessibly in nontechnical language. It will be an essential reference for anyone interested in medical malpractice.

Stockfleth: Skin Cancer after Organ Transplantation
By Eggert Stockfleth
2009 (1st ed), 502 pages, 60 illus, $149 list
Organ transplantation has been performed for almost 40 years with steadily increasing success regarding long-time survival of the graft, as well as quality of life for the patient. However, graft tolerance only can be achieved via induction and maintenance of an impaired immunological surveillance. An increase of skin cancers as a consequence of the lowered cellular immunoresponse seems to parallel the overall increased long-time survival rate of organ transplant recipients. Against the background of chronic immunosuppression known risk factors like the amount of sun exposure prior and post transplantation, oncogenic viruses as well as the genetic background, and place of residence (latitude) are strongly related with the increased skin cancer incidence.
Stolz: Color Atlas of Dermatoscopy
By Wilhelm Stolz
2015 (3rd ed), 320 pages, 500 illus, $180 list
The continuous, worldwide demand for this standard atlas has encouraged the authors and publishers to prepare an updated and enlarged third edition.

Thus, a dermatoscope, costing a 100 dollars, can save lives, or at least, the high costs of unnecessary surgery. This book is a highly visual guide to the subject and will teach the necessary pattern recognition skills. It really is an atlas, in that, it contains over 500 high resolution colour photographs with detailed accompanying diagrams to explain how to recognise the key diagnostic features of each lesion. The main focus of the book is the daily challenge which physicians face when evaluating patients with pigmented lesions.
