This text illustrates bone marrow aspirate, imprint and biopsy specimens showing characteristic features of a wide variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions. While the focus is on Wright-stained smears and hematoxylin-eosin stained biopsies, other key histochemical and immunohistochemical stains are illustrated that are vital for proper diagnosis. After a brief review of the normal bone marrow, reactive changes in the marrow are illustrated, including the bone marrow response in constitutional disorders and to metabolic changes throughout the body.

Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis--clinical, radiologic, and pathologic--and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection. This book, which contains more than 300 images, provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the soft tissues and bones.

Series: AFIP Atlas of Non-Tumor Pathology
This atlas is a histological reference for surgical pathologists not familiar or comfortable with the diagnosis of non-tumorous diseases of bones and joints. One in three physician office visits are due to bone or joint complaints; yet only one in thirty thousand orthopedic patients has a bone tumor. The diagnosis of orthopedic diseases is a complex enterprise requiring cross specialty cooperation. While contributions from orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, and rheumatologists have been included to provide more clinical relevance to this work, the emphasis is on surgical pathology of bone and joint diseases. The original and comprehensive photographs, illustrations, and tables in this reference enhance clinicopathologic correlation and diagnostic application in a way seldom provided by previous pathology resources.

This issue of Surgical Pathology Clinics is devoted to Soft Tissue Tumors, the first in this series was presented in 2011. This issue addresses the most difficult diagnostic challenges and focuses on differential diagnosis in soft tissue tumors. Each presentation is accompanied by abundant histologic slides to display the diagnostic differences. Additionally, authors selected two to five diagnoses they find can be particularly difficult, with an emphasis on how to approach such lesions on biopsy samples where relevant and the role of ancillary studies.

Series: AFIP Tumor 4th edition
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.

Series: AFIP Tumor 4th edition
This volume follows the long tradition of AFIP Atlases of Tumor Pathology. The authors have put emphasis on diagnosis, so the presentation is generally concise, yet more comprehensive on key points. In addition, the authors emphasize diagnostically important information on immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics, and include additional details when biologically significant. Site-specific soft tissue entities covered in the other atlases are often excluded due to space constraints. The text is aimed as a practical diagnostic aid for pathologists, cytopathologists and patholÂogy trainees, but the authors hope that their clinical colleagues and others may also find it as a useful source of information on soft tissue tumors and tumor-like lesions.
