For each anatomical site, you’ll find specimen examination protocols plus detailed immunohistochemistry panels to accompany the images. This one-of-a-kind book covers a variety of benign and malignant disorders and lymphomas, such as infectious causes of lymphadenitis, reactive lymphadenopathies, immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferations, and granulocytic tumors of the lymph nodes, spleen and extranodal sites. Additionally, as with our other Diagnostic Pathology™ titles, chapters include definitions, terminology, etiologies and pathogenesis, demographics, clinical presentations, therapy, prognoses, radiologic imaging, pathology, and differential diagnoses. The pathologic features are extensively detailed with descriptions of macroscopic features, microscopic findings, cytopathology, and ancillary studies.

This handsome volume will guide the reader through the intricacies of lymph node, spleen, and extranodal pathologies and the diagnosis of lymphomas and lymphadenopathies.
