This book covers the complete field of pleura and mediastinum pathology - from acquired multilocular thymic cyst to well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma. The alphabetically arranged entries, each of which provides a detailed description of a specific pathological disease pattern, allow readers to quickly and easily find the information they need.
Timothy Craig Allen, M.D., J.D., obtained his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in 1984 and completed his residency in anatomic and clinical pathology, subsequently serving on the faculty of Baylor College of Medicine until 1995. He then attended the University of Chicago Law School and graduated with the degree of Doctor of Law With Honors in 1998, subsequently practicing health care law and litigation. Dr. Allen completed a 2-year fellowship in pulmonary pathology in the Texas Medical Center in 2004. He is currently Professor of Pathology, Director of Anatomic Pathology, and Laboratory Director of the Department of Laboratory Services at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Dr. Allen is certified by the American Board of Pathology in anatomic and clinical pathology, with added qualification in cytopathology. He is an associate editor of the Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Dr. Allen is the president of the Pulmonary Pathology Society and president of the Texas Society of Pathology. He is Governor of the College of American Pathologists Board of Governors, and is chair, co-chair, or member of several CAP Councils and Committees. He has authored and coauthored numerous articles and book chapters on pulmonary pathology and medicolegal issues and has coauthored and co-edited several books on pulmonary pathology.
Dr. Suster took his basic training in pathology at the University of Tel-Aviv Sackler School of Medicine, Israel, followed by residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center of Greater Miami, Florida, under Prof. Arkadi M. Rywlin, followed by a fellowship in research and surgical pathology at Yale University School of Medicine under Dr. Juan Rosai. He served as Director of Surgical Pathology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center of Greater Miami and Professor of Pathology at the University of Miami School of Medicine from 1990-1997, and as Professor of Pathology and Director of the Division of Anatomic Pathology at the Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, from 1998-2007. He currently is Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI. Dr. Suster has authored more than 300 publications, 30 book chapters, 5 books and is co-editor of the textbook `Modern Surgical Pathology' published by W.B. Saunders. His research has centered mainly in the field of thoracic pathology, particularly oncologic surgical pathology of the lung, pleura and mediastinum. He has also contributed to the literature in the areas of skin tumors, soft tissue neoplasms, and thyroid pathology. Dr. Suster has served as an invited guest speaker for major national and international pathology meetings and served in the faculty of the College of American Pathologists, American Society of Clinical Pathologists, United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, International Academy of Pathology and other national and international organizations. Dr. Suster is the co-Editor-in-Chief of the `Annals of Diagnostic Pathology' and is also a member of the editorial board of several other major pathology journals.
