Well-Differentiated Malignancies: New Perspectives is devoted to an important topic in surgical pathology which is inadequately covered by currently available books. Well-differentiated malignancies are systematically addressed with an emphasis on the tissue/cell specific malignant atypia. The key features for each malignancy are extensively illustrated with high quality pictures from authoritative sources.
This book represents a daring and rarely attempted endeavor to bridge the gap between histopathology and molecular medicine in that cutting-edge molecular findings are seamlessly integrated into the key morphological features. This volume also includes discussions of short lists of organ-based benign lesions with concerning morphological features.Presented in the differential diagnosis section, they will not only serve as useful checklists for the surgical pathologist who is seriously contemplating a diagnosis of malignancy due to the observation of some cytological or histological atypia, but also help hone the key features of each malignant atypia.
Well-Differentiated Malignancies: New Perspectives provides an innovative resource on the difficult topic of well differentiated malignancies for pathology residents, fellows and for those already in clinical practice.
