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.

Unni: Tumors of the Bones and Joints (Vol 2)
By K. Krishnan Unni, Carrie Y. Inwards, Julia A. Bridge, Lars-Gunnar Kindblom and Lester E. Wold
2005, 339 pages, $125 list
One of the goals of the Fourth Series Tumor Fascicles is the presentation of new molecular findings which add to our understanding of tumor pathogenesis and may additionally be useful diagnostically. Such information is particularly relevant to the study of bone tumors and tumor-like lesions, and Drs. Unni, Inwards, Bridge, Kindblom and Wold have included an up-to-date summary of where pathologists stand in the application of these new data in this volume. The authors are also well aware that the primary mission of the Fascicles is to help the practicing pathologist diagnose a difficult case correctly, and for most pathologists, any lesion in a bone is potentially problematic. Thus, the important diagnostic feature of each major lesion (including all known variants) is presented in detail. This includes not only the gross, histopathologic, and cytologic findings, but also the clinical and radiographic features of particular importance in the differential diagnosis of bone tumors and their mimics. Most illustrations of pathologic features are now in color, and the classic references in this field have been complemented by extensive current literature citations. This volume should prove to be useful for many years.

Wick: Diagnostic Histochemistry
By Mark Wick
2008 (1st ed), 472 pages, 1200 illus, $164 list
Pathology is an inherently subjective discipline, and therefore is often referred to as both an art and a science. Over the years, laboratory physicians have implemented special tissue stains and molecular techniques to limit subjectivity in the discipline. Beginning in the late 19th century, histochemical stains were developed to assess diagnostic biochemical reactions in tissue. Histochemistry has recently seen a resurgence in popularity because of the higher costs of other newer methods. Today, this technique is used by almost every pathology laboratory across the world. This book comprehensively covers all diseases for which that technique plays a central role in diagnosis. Every anatomic region is covered in detail with examples of appropriate staining techniques, and the book is heavily illustrated with over 850 color photomicrographs. This is the first monograph to be published on histochemistry in 15 years, and it is the only one that is diagnostically-oriented.

Wong: Drugs of Abuse: Body Fluid Testing
By Raphael Wong
2010 (1st ed), 316 pages, $209 list
A comprehensive review of the science of drug testing in all its aspects, placing emphasis on technologies that use body fluids other than urine for determining the presence of drugs of abuse.

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.
