Diagnostic Pathology: Pediatric Neoplasms offers expert guidance on over 170 of the most important benign and malignant pediatric neoplasm diagnoses. This 860-page book is divided into 16 sections that encompass every major organ system covering all the important pediatric neoplasms. Each chapter covers the main clinical, gross, and microscopic features in a systematic way that allows the pathologist to quickly arrive at the correct diagnosis.
Unique to this book are the image galleries. Most textbooks include a limited number of images of the more common diagnoses (usually only one or two images), but this book includes a minimum of at least 5 images per diagnosis. Overall, the book includes over 2,431 stunning pathologic and radiographic images, along with several high-color medical illustrations. Each image is carefully annotated to highlight the elements that are most diagnostically significant.
Many of the diagnoses discussed in this book contain images from entities in the differential diagnosis that allow for easy and quick comparisons when considering more than one diagnosis. In addition, ancillary techniques such as immunohistochemistry, molecular, and cytology are included for those neoplasms that may require other techniques in their work up.
