Series: Diagnostic Pathology
Publisher: Elsevier; 2 edition (March 2, 2016)
Part of the highly regarded Diagnostic Pathology series, this updated volume is a visually stunning, easy-to-use reference covering all aspects of head and neck pathology. Outstanding images―including gross and microscopic pathology, a wide range of stains, and detailed medical illustrations―make this an invaluable diagnostic aid for every practicing pathologist, resident, or fellow. This second edition incorporates the most recent clinical, pathological, histological, and molecular knowledge in the field to provide a comprehensive overview of all key issues relevant to today’s practice.
– Thoroughly updated content throughout including new coverage of oropharyngeal carcinoma; HPV-associated, mammary analogue secretory carcinoma; EWSR1 driven tumors; molecular pathways as targets for salivary duct carcinoma; and much more
– High-quality, carefully annotated color images (50% new!) provide clinically and diagnostically important information on more than 315 new and evolving entities of the head and neck and endocrine organs
– State-of-the-art coverage of tumors, tumor development, and tumor genetics as well as normal histology, genetic testing, and new immunohistochemistry studies
– Fully integrated, searchable, and linked content between differential diagnostic categories is perfectly suited for residents, while updated genetic testing algorithms, new images, and outstanding graphics make this text ideal for both residents and practitioners
– Supporting studies are placed into clinical context, with tables and molecular flow charts that assist with management decisions and prognostic outcome predictions
– Time-saving reference features include bulleted text, a variety of test data tables, key facts in each chapter, annotated images, and an extensive index
Thisis an update of an in-depth book on non-neoplastic, benign, and malignant headand neck lesions. The previous edition was published in 2011.
The purpose is to provide a reference with reliable and updated information on all aspects of head and neck lesions, which the authors have done.
It is intended primarily for pathologists and pathology residents in training. The authors and contributors are all pathologists, some of whom trained me. The book also may be used as a reference for a broad spectrum of medical practitioners including, but not limited to, head and neck surgeons,oncologists, and radiologists with an interest in head and neck disease.
The book’s more than 1,100 pages are organized into sections covering the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, pharynx, larynx and trachea, oral cavity,salivary glands, jaw, ear and temporal bone, neck, thyroid gland, and parathyroid glands. Each section begins with normal histology and anatomy of the site, followed by non-neoplastic lesions, benign neoplasms, and malignant tumors. The key facts and initial gallery of photographs enable the book’s use as a quick reference. Different diseases are presented in a highly structured and bulleted format that includes definitions, etiology, clinical and demographic parameters, treatment and prognosis, imaging findings, pathological features, ancillary studies, and differential diagnoses. The quality of most gross and microscopic images is excellent. The book also has useful tables that summarize important immunohistochemical findings of different neoplasms. The index is user friendly.
This may become one of the top resources for pathologists with an interest in head and neck lesions. Since the previous edition, new entities have been described and more molecular tests developed, and I was happy to see these discussed. The bulleted format makes the book user friendly in a busy practice.
The graphics and schematic drawings are extraordinarily well done and will prove to be very helpful for teaching purposes. The photomicrographs are of excellent quality and at times the well-placed arrows help to explain the points the authors are trying to convey. I personally appreciate the discussion (again in bulleted format) in the differential diagnosis section instead of just a list. This will be a great addition to departmental and personal libraries.
