Central Nervous System is the new atlas-oriented resource in central nervous system pathology. As the fourth book in the Cambridge Illustrated Surgical Pathology series it is the most comprehensive text of methods utilized by pathologists to accurately diagnose diseases affecting the brain, meninges, and spinal cord. The book is a richly illustrated guide to surgical neuropathology, including all primary brain tumors as well as others arising near the nervous system that are also within the scope of neurosurgical practice. Numerous neuroimaging examples are provided to underscore the importance of knowing the basics of radiographic studies in accurately diagnosing CNS pathology. A complete spectrum of nonneoplastic neuropathological entities is also illustrated, including infectious, inflammatory, and epilepsy-related neuropathology. Additional chapters address intraoperative consultation and frozen sections, as well as CSF cytopathology.

Pediatric pathology has been a recognized sup-specialty of pathology for almost two decades. Today pathology training programs are required to provide education in pediatric pathology. In addition to pediatric pathology specialists, many general and community-based pathologists regularly handle pediatric specimens. A working knowledge of current pediatric pathology is essential for appropriate handling of these cases. The Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology covers the broad range of pediatric diseases that a pathologist will likely encounter and is written by well-known leaders in this field. Coverage includes both frequent and less commonly seen cases, and each discussion presents a concise summary of the salient features of the disease along with expertly selected, high-quality color images. The Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology is a practical working resource for every pathologist who sees pediatric cases as well as the pathology trainee. The atlas features approximately 1,100 high-quality images as well as important staging and prognostic (including molecular) parameters. Features of the Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology include: Comprehensive coverage of pediatric surgical and autopsy pathology Each chapter is presented by a recognized expert Practical presentation: concise text highlights diagnostic features making the atlas an outstanding resource for the practitioner Illustrated throughout with approximately 1,100 full-color images

Diagnostic Atlas of Non-Neoplastic Lung Disease provides the practicing pathologist with the tools necessary to synthesize diagnoses in biopsy and surgical specimens of non-neoplastic lung disease. Classification of non-neoplastic lung disease has become increasingly complex, especially in diffuse lung diseases where terminology has been changing and clinical and radiologic input is advocated for diagnosis. As a result, general surgical pathologists may feel ill-equipped to interpret such specimens. In this heavily illustrated and concisely written book, Dr. Katzenstein, a leading authority in pulmonary pathology, has brought a pattern-based approach to formulating diagnoses in non-neoplastic lung diseases with the non-expert pulmonary pathologist in mind. Chapters are organized according to pattern of lung involvement with the idea that once the pattern is recognized the pathologist can easily find examples and review the relevant disease within the corresponding chapter. Filled with tips and key features to navigate differential diagnosis, Diagnostic Atlas of Non-Neoplastic Lung Disease is an indispensable guide for pathologists who encounter non-neoplastic lung specimens in the lab. Key Features: Written by a respected pulmonary pathologist with over 40 years’ experience in the lab Over 350 high quality illustrative photomicrographs, many with low and high magnification views Emphasizes a pattern-based approach for formulating diagnoses Provides helpful tips for establishing diagnosis and avoiding misdiagnosis Relevant clinical information including patient demographics, presenting manifestations, and radiographic findings where important for pathologic diagnosis
