Manual of Pathology of the Human Placenta, Second Edition is a concise, practical manual of placental pathology.

Suggestions for comments in the surgical pathology report guide the reader in problematic situations or when the diagnosis or diagnostic implications are unclear. - An abundance of tables summarize pertinent information and provide easy access to the differential diagnoses of various lesions. The descriptive text is enhanced by 345 color illustrations. Manual of Pathology of the Human Placenta, Second Edition is a must-have reference for every pathologist, resident and pathology assistant.
