This is the third volume in the new World Health Organization series on histological and genetic typing of tumours. Tumours of the haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues are covered. This was a collaborative project of the European Association for Haematolpathology and the Society for Haematopathology and others. The WHO classification is based on the principles defined in the Revised European-American Classification of Lymphoid Neoplasms (REAL) classification. Over 50 pathologists from around the world were involved in the project and proponents of all major lymphoma and leukaemia classifications have agreed to accept the WHO as the standard classification of haematological malignancies. So this classification represents the first true world wide concensus of haematologic malignancies. Colour photographs, magnetic resonance and ultrasound images and CT scans are included.

WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues is a Revised Fourth Edition of the WHO series on histological and genetic typing of human tumours. This authoritative, concise reference provides an international standard for oncologists and pathologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome. Diagnostic criteria, pathological features, and associated genetic alterations are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner. Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants further include new ICD-O codes, epidemiology, clinical features, macroscopy, prognosis, and predictive factors. This classification, prepared by 132 authors from 23 countries, contains about 1300 color images and tables and more than 4500 references.

? Over 1,350 illustrations in 350 innovative composite figures designed to teach general pathologists the cytologic approach and cytologists the histologic basis for cytologic criteria? CD-ROM containing high resolution composite images that can be enlarged to the size of computer screen and detailed legends with clinical presentation, cytologic clues with different stains from low to high magnification as well as the mistakes made and lessons learned? Pathologic entities are arranged in the current classifications used by surgical pathologists so that they can translate their experience in histopathology to cytopathology? New classifications of tumors based on advances in cytogenetic and molecular evidence and all new illustrated cases from G C H Yang's collection? A new chapter on gynecologic tumors has been added. The chapter on malignant lymphoma has been completely rewritten to incorporate current WHO classifications. New tumors discovered in the past 16 years and new classifications of adrenal, kidney, liver and pancreatic tumors have been addedThe objective of this book is to share authors' combined 30 years' experience in the fine-needle aspiration biopsy diagnosis of organs beneath the diaphragm with general pathologists. Starting from the basics, this book progresses to in-depth cytomorphologic analysis with histologic and immunohistochemical confirmation of specific entities. Cytohistological correlation is emphasized by using composite images from either resected tumor or the cell block whenever possible. In addition, ultrastructural basis of cytological features is emphasized. Both cytology and electron microscopy classify tumors by meticulously analyzing the cytoplasmic features and cell junctions of scanty sample. Every histopathology entity should have a counterpart in cytopathology, since both derive from the same entity undergoing the same pathological process. The difference is in the artifacts; thus an attempt was made to explain the artifacts of aspiration cytology so that histopathologists may understand the cytologic approach and learn to interpret aspiration cytology with confidence.

A comprehensive color manual Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) became important for the cytology of the enlarged lymph node in the 1950s and 1960s and was accepted in the diagnosis of various types of lymphadenitis and metastatic disease. The diagnosis of lymphoma by FNA cytology, however, remained controversial for many years, as FNA smears did not allow the evaluation of growth pattern. Only later with the introduction of immunocytochemistry on FNA material it became possible to conclusively diagnose the majority of lymphomas with an accuracy comparable to that of histopathology. Other ancillary techniques such as FISH and PCR can now also be applied successfully to FNA material. These facts together with the excellent clinical performance of FNA sampling should increase the spread of the technique. This comprehensive manual presents the cytomorphologic and immunocytochemical characteristics of both non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphomas. It discusses the technical, methodological aspects of lymphoma diagnosis and describes the cytologic features of reactive lymphoid lesions and the major types of neoplastic lymphoid lesions, based on the most recent (2001) WHO lymphoma classification. Key cytologic and immunologic features are listed to facilitate a conclusive diagnosis of the different lesions. This publication will be of immense value to clinicians such as cytopathologists, pathologists, oncologists, and hematologists involved in the clinical work-up and management of patients with lymph node lesions.

The Demos Surgical Pathology Guides series presents in summary and visual form the basic knowledge base that every practicing pathologist needs every working day. Series volumes cover the major specialty areas of surgical pathology, and coverage emphasizes the key entities and diagnoses that pathologists will see in practice, and that they must know whether in training or practice. The emphasis is on the basic morphology with newer techniques represented where they are frequently used. The series provides a handy summary and quick reference that any pathology resident or fellow will find useful. Experienced practitioners will find the series valuable as a portable "refresher course" or review tool. Lymph Nodes presents the full gamut of lymph node disorders and diagnoses that pathologists commonly see in practice. Traditional morphology and histopathologic features, coupled with clinical data, are emphasized. Chapters are complemented with both high-power images for analysis of cytologic features of lymph node cells as well as low-power images for assessment of lymph node architecture. The chapters cover infectious lymphadenopathies, reactive lymphadenopathies, lymphadenopathies associated with systemic disorders, lymph node inclusions, spindle cell neoplasms of lymph nodes, foreign body lymphadenopathies, mature B-cell neoplasms, precursor lymphoid neoplasms, Hodgkin lymphoma, and more. Lymph Nodes is highly illustrated throughout and provides residents and clinicians with a quick reference for rotation or review.
