Description: This outstanding new addition to the Major Problems in Pathology Series provides a comprehensive exploration of all aspects of modern pathology of the prostate gland in a single, concise volume. Coverage begins with the embryology of the prostate and extends through anatomy and developmental biology to infectious and inflammatory lesions, benign proliferative lesions, and prostate cancer.
