The following are a few of the topics discussed in detail: The importance of utilizing a managerial as well as a scientific classification when reporting on soft tissue tumors. Distinguishing morphologically bland, but clinically malignant, lesions such as low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma from benign mimics. The reasons for retaining the category of the so-called fibrous histiocytomas. Myxoid lesions of the soft tissue. Atypical lipomatous tumors and dedifferentiated liposarcomas. Spindle cell/pleomorphic lipoma vs atypical lipomatous tumor. Problematic smooth muscle tumors of the soft tissues and retroperitoneum. The differential diagnosis of small round blue cell tumors. Tumors of the soft tissues with constituent cells of an epithelioid phenotype. The morphologic features most useful in classifying vascular tumors.

Many soft-tissue tumors are biologically very aggressive, and the chance of them metastasizing to vital organs is quite high. In recent years, the outlook for soft-tissue cancers has brightened dramatically due to the increased accuracy of the pathologist's tools. All methods of diagnosis are covered here, with an emphasis on the newest immunoassays and other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities. This book's systematic description of benign and malignant primary soft tissue tumors with didactic, comprehensive panels of illustrations allows the reader to formulate a complete understanding of the morphology of tumor entities at one glance.

Unni: Tumors of the Bones and Joints (Vol 2)
By K. Krishnan Unni, Carrie Y. Inwards, Julia A. Bridge, Lars-Gunnar Kindblom and Lester E. Wold
2005, 339 pages, $125 list
One of the goals of the Fourth Series Tumor Fascicles is the presentation of new molecular findings which add to our understanding of tumor pathogenesis and may additionally be useful diagnostically. Such information is particularly relevant to the study of bone tumors and tumor-like lesions, and Drs. Unni, Inwards, Bridge, Kindblom and Wold have included an up-to-date summary of where pathologists stand in the application of these new data in this volume. The authors are also well aware that the primary mission of the Fascicles is to help the practicing pathologist diagnose a difficult case correctly, and for most pathologists, any lesion in a bone is potentially problematic. Thus, the important diagnostic feature of each major lesion (including all known variants) is presented in detail. This includes not only the gross, histopathologic, and cytologic findings, but also the clinical and radiographic features of particular importance in the differential diagnosis of bone tumors and their mimics. Most illustrations of pathologic features are now in color, and the classic references in this field have been complemented by extensive current literature citations. This volume should prove to be useful for many years.

Bone is a living tissue prone to develop a diverse array of inflammatory, metabolic, genetic, reactive, circulatory and neoplastic abnormalities. The Atlas of Bone Pathology describes and selectively illustrates the normal and pathologic conditions that afflict human bone, focusing heavily on tumor and tumor-like conditions of bone and their non-neoplastic mimics. Supplemented with radiographic and special study images, this extraordinary collection of high quality digital images aid continuing efforts to recognize, understand, and accurately interpret the light microscopic findings in bone specimens. Authored by nationally and internationally recognized pathologists, The Atlas of Bone Pathology is a concise and useful resource for both novice and seasoned pathologists alike.
