Burg: Atlas of Dermatopathology: Practical Differential Diagnosis by Clinicopathologic Pattern
By Gunter Burg, Werner Kempf and Heinz Kutzner
2015, 384 pages, $155 list
The most efficient method in the diagnosis of skin diseases is the combined validation of clinical and histopathological features.

Each chapter uses or discusses the nomenclature and classification system of liver tumors as per the current WHO classification of liver tumors. Each chapter fully incorporates the most up to date diagnostic methodologies, including immunohistochemistry and molecular methods. Referencing is succinct and references were carefully chosen for their key role as the primary sources of information on a given disease. The text is richly illustrated with beautiful color images that highlight not just the “average” histological findings for a given entity, but also fully illustrate all of the key histological variability. Gross images are also included to highlight important diagnostic features. Tables are used judiciously to present summary information that allows a quick review on how similar entities compare and contrast. In addition, the clinical significance of various diseases will be discussed in a focused fashion that highlights how pathology information is being used to make key clinical management decisions. Each chapter is written by experts in hepatopathology, all from the Mayo Clinic Departments of Pathology.
Nayar: The Bethesda System for Reporting Cervical Cytology
By Ritu Nayar and David Wilbur
2015, 321 pages, $47 list
This book offers clear, up-to-date guidance on how to report cytologic findings in cervical, vaginal and anal samples in accordance with the 2014 Bethesda System Update.
