This text-atlas is a practical, integrated, and modern approach to lymph node pathology. Intended for both practising pathologists and pathologists in training, it provides a personal view of lymph node diagnosis by one of the international leaders in the field. Illustrated with over 250 full-color photographs, this book covers the entire range of diseases that may be encountered in lymph node pathology. It features extensive coverage of non-neoplastic lymphoid lesions and non-lymphoid lesions, as well as discussing all malignant lymphomas and other neoplasms that may involve lymph nodes in both adult and pediatric populations. The orientation is unique, as the text not only showcases various disease entities but also portrays the progression of disease states from incipient to advanced. Finally, the author emphasizes differential diagnosis, covering all of the methods used in distinguishing different easily confused entities.
