Prostate Pathology concentrates on the salient H&E histopathology of each entity discussed with brief descriptors of the clinical features, differential diagnosis, and relevant literature references for each entity. The book features a bulleted format with H&E illustrations to match histopathologic criteria. Helpful ancillary tests, in particular, appropriate immunohistochemical panels are also summarized. Prostate Pathology provides a synopsis of all common prostate entities and covers non-neoplastic conditions, including description of normal structures, premalignant conditions and prostate carcinoma, and mesenchymal, hemotopoietic and secondary tumors. The book provides a handy summary and quick reference guide for pathology residents and will serve as a "portable refresher course" or MOC review tool for the more experienced pathologist.
