Ali: Lung and Mediastinum Cytohistology
By Syed Ali
2012 (1st ed), 272 pages, 500 illus, $175 list
This installment in the series provides comprehensive coverage of lung and mediastinal cytopathology. It presents a correlation of findings from fine-needle aspiration and exfoliative cytology and histologic findings obtained via core needle biopsies and surgical specimens. With a focus on malignant tumors, the full spectrum of inflammatory disorders, infectious diseases, hyperplasias and benign tumor or tumor-like lesions are also covered in detail.
Churg: Tumors of Serosal Membranes (Vol 3)
By Andrew Churg, Philip T. Cagle, and Victor L.Roggli
2006, 147 pages, $75 list
The pathologist who sees specimens from lesions of the serosal membranes (pleura, pericardium, peritoneum, and tunica vaginalis) is well aware that these cases, whether in the form of fluid cytologies, small biopsies, or major resections, pose differential diagnostic problems that are among the most difficult in anatomic pathology. The main problems involve the separation of malignant mesothelioma from benign mesothelial processes on the one hand and other malignant tumors (particularly primary and metastatic carcinomas) on the other. With these differential diagnoses in mind, Drs. Churg, Cagle, and Roggli concentrate on the cytopathologic and histopathologic features of diffuse malignant mesothelioma, its many variants, and the other benign and malignant lesions to be distinguished from it. Histochemical, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural and molecular features of potential use in this differentiation are discussed and illustrated. Common differential diagnostic problems and their solutions take precedence, but all of the known benign and malignant lesions of serosal membranes are covered, with copious illustrations and the latest available references. Epidemiologic, pathogenetic, clinical, radiographic and gross pathologic features are integrated with the discussions of these entities. This will be the most complete source available on this topic for years to come.
Heitzman: The Mediastinum
By E.R. Heitzman
2012 (2nd ed), 369 pages, $99 list
This new edition of The Mediastinum provides yet more complete coverage of the radiologic appearances of the normal and abnormal mediastinum. These appearances are correlated with underlying anatomic and pathologic specimens, permitting a better understanding of findings and more accurate diagnosis. The approach of the book is thorough, reviewing a wide range of abnormalities that the reader may encounter. In particular, this new edition offers more precise insight into the radiographic appearance of thoracic disease. It also provides more extensive illustrations and an updated bibliography covering all literature since the first edition.
Lavini: Thymus Gland Pathology
By Corrado Lavini
2008 (1st ed), 274 pages, $149 list
This volume is an update on the pathology of this gland and includes 24 chapters written by international and well-known experts. The whole thymic pathology is described and new concepts about the nosological classification and the thymic neoplasm staging system are reported. Some chapters are focused on the radiologic, mini-invasive, and surgical diagnosis, and other chapters deal with surgical and non-surgical treatments. Special chapters are devoted to myasthenia gravis and thymus transplantation.
Marchevsky: Pathology of the Mediastinum
By Alberto Marchevsky
2014 (1st ed), 440 pages, 650 illus, $179 list
This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the pathology of the neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases that occur in the mediastinum. The pathologic and relevant clinical features are discussed, and detailed diagnostic criteria for various diseases are given, along with information about the most relevant laboratory tests. The features of thymomas, thymic carcinomas, neuroendocrine carcinomas and germ cell tumors are discussed in detail, including the utilization of immunostains and other ancillary tests in diagnosing these diseases. An algorithmic approach to the differential diagnosis of mediastinal lymphomas is given, and a novel clinico-pathologic classification helps readers diagnose and treat thymomas. Cardiac lesions, mesothelioma and other intrathoracic lesions are also reviewed.
Shimosato: Tumors of the Mediastinum (Vol 11)
By Yukio Shimosato, Kiyoshi Mukai, Yoshihiro Matsuno
2010, 322 pages, $135 list
Since the publication of the AFIP Third Series fascicle in 1997, the World Health Organization (WHO) has printed two major volumes concerning tumors of the thymus. Drs. Mukai and Shimosato, who are not only two of the authors of Tumors of the Mediastinum but also co-authors of the Third Series fascicle, were collaborators on the WHO volumes. In the last 10 years, little progress has been made in the study of tumors of the thymus, although a few new subtypes have been reported. The most significant change was the subtyping by the WHO of tumors of the thymus that do not cause constitutional changes. The present Fascicle has adopted the WHO system of classification. For pathologists who are not as familiar with the WHO system, the authors extensively explain and illustrate both the morphologic and histogenetic classification systems that are its bases. Due to the changes in nomenclature, the chapter on thymic epithelial tumors has been considerably revised. The main diagnostic terms are presented along with the previous conventional morphologic and histogenetic terms, for the readers’ sake. Newly recognized tumor entities, new cytologic and genetic findings, and recent references have been added. Tables have been revised to reflect new data on survival, staging, and classification. This volume will be an authoritative reference on mediastinal tumors for years to come.
