Product description

Fully rewritten and updated for the cutting-edge sixth edition, Spencer's Pathology of the Lung follows in its predecessors' footsteps as the gold-standard textbook of pulmonary diseases. All recognized diseases of the lungs are discussed and illustrated with extensive, high-quality color images. Each chapter includes practical, clear and concise diagnostic features, including immunohistochemistry, molecular tests and differential diagnoses, while rare entities are discussed and illustrated in detail. This thoroughly reworked edition includes new classification schemes and the latest understanding of the pathophysiology and molecular aspects of a wide range of diseases. Non-neoplastic diseases are presented according to epidemiology, genetics, clinical manifestations, radiographic findings, pathology, cytology, laboratory findings, pathogenesis, differential diagnosis, prognosis and natural history. Neoplasms are discussed according to cell or origin with sections devoted to genetics, molecular findings and clinicopathologic correlations. Downloadable versions of all images are available on a CD-ROM packaged with the print book. Written and edited by leading experts in the field, this is an essential resource for practising and trainee pathologists.

Review quote

'... beautifully presented ... covers all aspects of lung pathology ... it is a superb addition to the pulmonary pathology literature, expertly crafted, deftly edited and lavishly illustrated. I ... unhesitatingly recommend its purchase to any department receiving any volume of lung pathology.' Journal of Clinical Pathology '... an outstanding, modern and complete opus ... a 'must have' for lung pathologists ...' European Respiratory Review 'I believe that this book remains a classic in the field and, as such, should be a part of any pathology library and should be on the shelf of any physician who practices anatomical pathology and sees a modest to large volume of lung and pleural specimens.' Human Pathology 'To be blunt, no currently available atlas, fascicle, or textbook approaches the excellence of this volume as a reference for pulmonary tumors ... I have no doubts that great pulmonary pathology textbooks are going to be published in the future. What I honestly doubt is that they will match or surpass the quality of this one.' American Journal of Surgical Pathology
