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

Part of the in-depth and practical Pattern Recognition series, Practical Pulmonary Pathology, 3rd Edition, helps you accurately identify and interpret neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the lungs by using a pattern-based approach. Leading diagnosticians in pulmonary pathology guide you from a histological pattern, through the appropriate work-up, around the pitfalls, and to the best diagnosis. Superb, full-color illustrations capture key pathological patterns for a full range of common and rare conditions, and a "visual index" at the beginning of the book directs you to the exact location of in-depth diagnostic guidance. A user-friendly design color-codes patterns to specific entities, and key points are summarized in tables, charts, and graphs so you can quickly and easily find what you are looking for. Sweeping content updates keep you at the forefront of recent findings regarding pulmonary hypertension, pediatric lung disease, and all major neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the lung. A new chapter on Pulmonary Function Testing for Pathologists brings you up to date with relevant aspects of these key tests. Improved pattern call-outs are now linked directly within the chapter, reinforcing the patterns for more efficient and complete understanding.

This book provides a quick, pattern-based reference for interpreting histologic changes in non-neoplastic liver. It is designed to guide the reader based on morphologic pattern and basic clinical information. Each chapter covers a broad but identifiable pattern of pathologic liver findings (e.g., “portal inflammation” or “steatosis”) and discusses the major disease entities that manifest as such a pattern. As liver biopsies can be complex and daunting, such an approach should improve the reader’s ability to identify a likely diagnosis or differential and to distinguish among the possible disease entities. Sample reports at the end of each chapter offer guidance on how to sign out cases. Non-Neoplastic Liver Pathology: A Pathologist’s Survival Guide will be of value to practicing pathologists without specialized training in hepatic pathology, pathology residents and fellows trying to learn the basics of non-neoplastic liver pathology, and hepatologists interested in reviewing liver biopsies with pathologists

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. Neoplastic Lesions of the Skin presents the full gamut of skin lesion 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 skin lesions cells as well as low-power images for assessment of skin lesion architecture The chapters cover epithelial and epidermal lesions; adnexal lesions; cysts; connective tissue tumors, neural neoplasms; and pigmented lesions of the skin. Neoplastic Lesions of the Skin is highly illustrated throughout and provides residents and clinicians with a quick reference for rotation or review.
