By Sylvia Asa
2011 (1st ed), 283 pages, $95 list
The classification of pituitary disease is becoming easier, and as targeted therapies are being developed, the role of the pathologist in determining accurate diagnoses is increasingly important. The surgical pathologist musttherefore recognize the important role of morphologic analysis in classifying sellar pathology for the diagnosis and management of the pituitary patient.
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.

Felner: Endocrine Pathophysiology
By Eric Felner and Guillermo Umpierrez
2013, 464 pages, $50 list
Endocrine Pathophysiology offers a comprehensive introduction to diseases of the endocrine system. Rather than providing an overwhelming amount of content on one subject, this book serves as a bridge between basic endocrine physiology and endocrine disorders. Included in the text are case studies covering a variety of endocrine disorders in both inpatient and outpatient settings. With the changes in many medical school curriculums to a clinically-based curriculum, this book provides a cutting-edge approach to endocrine pathophysiology.
Heilo: Atlas of Thyroid Lesions
By Arne Heilo
2010 (1st ed), 267 pages, 802 illus, $150 list
Atlas of Thyroid Lesions provides a broad overview of the variety of lesions in the thyroid gland and their different characteristics and features, in ultrasound, cytological and histological appearance. Nodules in the thyroid are quite common. Epidemiologic studies estimate that between 4% and 7% of the adult population in the United States have palpable thyroid nodules. More than 80% of thyroid nodules are benign. Too many benign nodules are surgically resected for safety’s sake, and too many malignant tumors do not get adequate primary surgical treatment, both because a certain preoperative diagnosis is missing.
Hunt: Molecular Pathology of Endocrine Diseases
By Jennifer Hunt
2010 (1st ed), 618 pages, 18 illus, $169 list
The Molecular Pathology Library Series fills the gap between basic science and clinical application. Each user-friendly reference brings together diverse topics about molecular pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment in one volume. The series serves physicians and healthcare providers in multiple disciplines who need to understand and apply molecular diagnostics and therapy to patient care; residents and fellows who integrate molecular medicine into their curricula and future practice; and basic and translational researchers who must define the impact of their research on clinical medicine.
Kharchenko: Ultrasound Diagnostics of Thyroid Diseases
By Vladimir Kharchenko
2010 (1st ed), 245 pages, 820 illus, $189 list
As the basis for this book, the authors have analyzed more than 100,000 ultrasound examinations performed between 1995 and 2008 in patients with thyroid and parathyroid disease, as well as many thousands of diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound-guided minimally invasive procedures. The opening chapters include discussion of current ultrasound techniques, pitfalls, and ultrasound examination of the thyroid in children. Detailed attention is then devoted to findings in the normal thyroid and in the presence of diffuse and focal changes. Further chapters focus on such topics as the role of ultrasound after thyroid surgery and ultrasound diagnosis of parathyroid disease, recurrent goiter, and neck masses. Ultrasound-guided minimally invasive techniques, such as fine-needle aspiration biopsy and percutaneous laser ablation, are considered in depth. This up-to-date and richly illustrated book will interest and assist specialists in ultrasound diagnostics, radiologists, endocrinologists, and neck surgeons.

Rosai: Tumors of the Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands (Vol 21)
By Juan Rosai, MD; Ronald A. DeLellis, MD; Maria Luisa Carcangiu, MD; William J. Frable, MD; Giovanni Tallini
2015, $165 list
In the years since the publication of the Third Series AFIP Fascicles on the thyroid and parathyroid glands, awareness of the remarkable morphologic diversity of thyroid carcinoma has notably expanded, and great advances have been made in unraveling the molecular genetic features of thyroid and parathyroid tumors. There has also been an increased interest in the use of the fine-needle aspiration technique for the diagnosis and management of thyroid tumors, and in the role of the pathologist in the operative handling of the hyperfunctioning parathyroid gland. This Fascicle documents the most significant advances that have taken place in these areas, emphasizing those with a practical application at the clinical level. The format remains similar to that of the previous versions, but the two thyroid and parathyroid Fascicles have been merged into one, and most of the black and white gross photographs and photomicrographs have been replaced with color images. The authors include a number of the most recent references, but have not ignored the classic works in the field, many of which have descriptions, illustrations, and insights that cannot be bettered. This Fascicle fulfills the original goal of this series, which is that of helping the pathologist diagnose and anticipate the behavior of tumors and tumor-like lesions included in this publication..
Yang: Thyroid Fine Needle Aspiration

Each case includes clinical presentation and final pathology. Concise, easy-to-read text enables readers to quickly find the information they need for accurate diagnosis. 'Lookalike' lesions are grouped together so the subtle cytological differences can be appreciated. The author's practical approach explains mistakes made and lessons learned, so diagnostic pitfalls can be avoided.
