Neoplastic Mimics in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Pathology provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in thoracic and cardiovascular pathology. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of lesions in these areas that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Imaging and clinical correlations are emphasized throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the diagnostic and clinical management team. This analysis of diagnostic mimics guides the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Text descriptions and concise and specific and the book is extensively illustrated in "atlas" style for easy use as a visual reference. Every pathologist who sees thoracic and cardiovascular cases will find this book a valuable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.
