Barrios: Parasitic Diseases of the Lungs
By Robert Barrios and Abida Haque
2013 (1st ed), 250 pages, $189 list
Diagnosis of parasitic lung diseases is often difficult as their clinical manifestations can mimic common respiratory illnesses and routine tests can fail to detect the infections. Parasitic Diseases of the Lungs is designed as a practical guide for pathologists who encounter parasitic diseases of the lung in their daily routine. The book comprises eight chapters. After discussion of the handling of lung biopsies from patients with suspected parasitic disease, individual chapters focus on Protozoa, Nematoda, Trematoda, and Cestoda. The morphologic patterns associated with various parasitic infections are then analyzed, and differentiation between artifacts and parasites is discussed. The final chapter is devoted to the immunocompromised patient and covers general principles of histologic evaluation, parasites associated with HIV and AIDS, and the features of diffuse alveolar damage.

2015, $175 list (ARP)
Since the publication of the Third Series atlas on heart tumors, there have been several changes in the pathology and classification of these lesions. The current edition updates the status of heart tumors, with emphasis on newer findings, especially molecular advances. In most cases, the authors have followed the classification of the World Health Organization, whose updated volume on tumors of the lung, heart, and mediastinum is forthcoming. Because newer imaging modalities, especially cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and 3-D echocardiography are increasingly utilized in preoperative evaluation of heart tumors, the authors have introduced a chapter devoted exclusively to radiologic diagnosis.
