Pediatric pathology has been a recognized sup-specialty of pathology for almost two decades. Today pathology training programs are required to provide education in pediatric pathology. In addition to pediatric pathology specialists, many general and community-based pathologists regularly handle pediatric specimens. A working knowledge of current pediatric pathology is essential for appropriate handling of these cases.
The Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology covers the broad range of children's diseases that a pathologist will likely encounter and is edited by well-known leaders in this field. Coverage extends to surgical specimens as well as handling of placentas and autopsies.
Rather than a highly detailed, academic text, the Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology is a practical working resource. The atlas features approximately 900 high-quality images supported by concisely written text highlighting the salient diagnostic features as well as important staging and prognostic (including molecular) parameters.
Features of the Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology include:
- Comprehensive coverage of pediatric surgical and autopsy pathology
- Each chapter is presented by a recognized expert
- Practical presentation: concise text highlights diagnostic features making the atlas an outstanding resource for the practitioner
- Illustrated throughout with approximately 900 full-color images
