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.

Sun: Atlas of Hematologic Neoplasms
By Tsieh Sun
2009 (1st ed), 528 pages, 550 illus, $249 list
A concise discussion, references and teaching tables are available for further exploration. The major asset of this book is the provision of more than 500 beautiful photos depicting the morphology of peripheral blood smear, bone marrow, lymph node and other organs, as well as flow cytometric and molecular genetic pictures to illustrate the diagnostic principles. A diagnosis is rendered with subsequent brief discussion on how it was achieved.
Sun: Flow Cytometry, Immunohistochemistry, and Molecular Genetics for Hematologic Neoplasms
By Tsieh Sun
2011 (2nd ed), 432 pages, 425 illus, $225 list
Immunophenotyping is the most powerful tool in the routine diagnosis of hematologic neoplasms. Immunohistochemical technique is used in histology labs for this purpose, while flow cytometry is used in clinical labs. While separately these 2 techniques are very useful in detecting lymphomas and leukemias, the combination of both creates a very powerful and definitive diagnostic tool. The addition of molecular genetics to the book will make it an all-encompassing reference text.
Swerdlow: WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues (4th Ed, Vol 2)

2008 (1st ed), 274 pages, 608 illus, $200 list
Bone Marrow IHC provides a rich collection of color illustrations that demonstrate the diagnostic features of antibodies applicable to bone marrow tissue. Each of the antibodies illustrated in the volume includes a systematic description that details an expected reaction profile in both normal bone marrow cells and neoplastic cells, as well as authoritative advice about avoiding potential diagnostic pitfalls and technical problems related to the antibodies and tissue processing.
Verstovsek: Myeloproliferative Neoplasms
By Srdan Verstovsek
2010 (1st ed), 237 pages, 29 illus, $189 list
This succinct resource provides an ideal balance of the biology and practical therapeutic strategies for classic and non-classic BCR-ABL-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms. Utilizing current World Health Organization nomenclature, classification, and diagnostic criteria, international experts have assembled to convey the most up-to-date knowledge in this rapidly evolving field. The opening chapters cover the diagnosis and classification, genetics, cytogenetic findings, and prognostic factors of MPNs. Further chapters explore therapies specific to the different disease entities, including polycythemia vera, essential thrombocytopenia, myelofibrosis, and eosinophilic disorders, and mastocytosis. Unique areas of discussion include JAK2 inhibitor therapy, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and blastic transformation. A valuable reference for practicing hematologists, this forefront book enriches our understanding of recent discoveries and their impact on conventional and investigational treatments.
