This new volume in the Biopsy Interpretation Series is a practical guide and bench reference for the interpretation of neck biopsies that involve thyroid and parathyroid tissue. The text covers common thyroid biopsies, parathyroid biopsies that are frequent surgical specimens, and uncommon aspirates that may be mistaken for thyroid. Coverage includes state-of-the-art information on immunohistochemistry, molecular diagnostics, and laser scanning cytometry.

uses a simple algorithmic approach to the diagnosis of thyroid fine needle aspirations (FNA). This user-friendly, reference begins with an introduction to clinical aspects, a guide to performing and processing thyroid FNAs, and an overview to the algorithmic approach to thyroid FNA cytopathology. Organized in 11 easy-to-read chapters, this volume discusses the background, diagnostic approaches and criteria, differential diagnoses, and clinical management of inflammatory, colloid, follicular, Hurthle cell and cystic lesions, as well as, papillary, medullary and undifferentiated carcinomas.
Delellis: Tumors of Parathyroid Glands (Atlas of Tumor Pathology, 3rd Series, Vol 6); 1993, 102 pages, 106 illus. The text begins with an overview of the embryology, anatomy, histology, and ultrastructure of the parathyroid glands. Sections on normal and abnormal physiology review current concepts of calcium homeostasis, parathyroid hormone biosynthesis and function, and mechanisms of hypercalcemia. The main body of the text provides thorough discussions of adenomas, carcinomas, and hyperplasias, with an emphasis on clinical and pathological correlations.

provides a broad overview of the variety of lesions in the thyroid gland and their different characteristics and features, in ultrasound, cytological and histological appearance. Nodules in the thyroid are quite common. Epidemiologic studies estimate that between 4% and 7% of the adult population in the United States have palpable thyroid nodules. More than 80% of thyroid nodules are benign. Too many benign nodules are surgically resected for safety’s sake, and too many malignant tumors do not get adequate primary surgical treatment, both because a certain preoperative diagnosis is missing.

Diagnostic Pathology and Molecular Genetics of the Thyroid, Second Edition, offers a comprehensive overview of the diagnostic surgical pathology, cytopathology, immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics of the thyroid diseases, including neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions. The book provides a detailed description of the surgical pathology of thyroid diseases side by side with major advances in immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics that can be used in evaluating thyroid tumors and non-neoplastic diseases.
Rosai: Tumors of the Thyroid Gland (Atlas of Tumor Pathology, 3rd Series, Vol 5); 1993, 343 pages, 347 illus. The text begins with a concise summary of the embryology, anatomy, histology, and physiology of the thyroid. Then there are thorough discussions of the various forms of adenomas, carcinomas, sarcomas, and other tumors that occur in the thyroid.
