Basso: Cardiac Tumor Pathology
By Cristina Basso
2012 (1st ed), 211 pages, 139 illus, $189 list
Cardiac tumors were once a nosographic entity of scarce clinical interest because of the rarity and of the intrinsic diagnostic and therapeutic impossibilities, and were considered a fatal morbid entity. It has now become a topical subject due to advances in clinical imaging (echo, magnetic resonance, computed tomography) as well as innovation in technologies of in-vivo diagnosis. Cardiac Tumor Pathology presents a spectacular example of these advances with clinico-pathologic correlations. This timely volume covers history, epidemiology, demographics, clinical diagnosis, pathology, imaging by echo, CT and MRI of both benign and malignant cardiac tumors, either primary or secondary. Chemotherapy of malignant neoplasms is also addressed. Special emphasis is given to clinico-pathologic correlations. With all chapters written by experts in their fields, this volume will serve as a useful resource for physicians dealing with, and interested in, this special branch of cardiac oncology and will represent a useful guide for pathologists, clinicians, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and radiologists as well as for postgraduate students training in these areas.

Burke: Tumors of the Heart and Great Vessels (Vol 16)
By Allen Burke and Renu Virmani
1996, 231 pages, $58 list
The entirely new fascicle on tumors of the cardiovascular system is a comprehensive, 231-page text covering over 50 distinct tumors and tumorlike lesions of the heart and great vessels. Opening the 16-chapter volume are discussions of embryology, overview and incidence of tumors of the heart, and general pathologic and clinical approaches to cardiac tumors. Entities are discussed by putative cell of origin, with emphasis on histogenesis, clinical presentation, radiographic features, gross and microscopic features, and differential diagnosis. Immunohistochemical and ultrastructural findings, where helpful in diagnosis, are discussed and illustrated. A final chapter on metastatic tumors covers the differential diagnosis of metastatic pericardial disease and metastatic tumors to myocardium. There is special emphasis on cardiac myxoma and cardiac sarcomas, which represent the most common primary tumors of the heart, as well as an extensive chapter on mesotheliomas of the pericardium. Newly described lesions, such as cardiac MICE and post-transplant lymphoproliferative diseases, are discussed and illustrated. The text is lavishly illustrated, with over 270 illustrations of gross and microscopic images. The text relies on the vast repository of cardiac tumors at the AFIP as well as on extensive literature citations, emphasizing the most recent references in the 1990's through 1995. There are 18 tables emphasizing incidence, classification, clinical findings, syndromes associated with cardiac tumors, and prognostic data of cardiac sarcomas.
