Description

A comprehensive review of recent molecular discoveries that can clarify the pathophysiology of endocrine disease processes and contribute to the diagnostic aspects of endocrine pathology. Surgeons, medical oncologists, and radiation therapists discuss the treatment of endocrine disorders, especially tumors, with emphasis on differential diagnosis and on broadening the perspective that the endocrine pathologist must have in making specific tissue diagnoses. Of interest to practicing pathologists, pathology residents, endocrinologists, endocrinologists in training, veterinarians, and interested researchers.show more

Back cover copy

The significant insights and new diagnostic possibilities arising from recent discoveries in cellular and molecular biology are transforming the field of endocrine pathology. In Endocrine Pathology: Differential Diagnosis and Molecular Advances, a panel of leading experts capture these dynamic changes by critically reviewing those molecular discoveries that can clarify the pathophysiology of endocrine disease processes and enhance the diagnosis of specific endocrine pathologies. Here, pathologists, endocrinologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, and radiation therapists discuss the treatment of endocrine disorders, especially tumors, with emphasis on in-depth differential diagnosis and on broadening the endocrine pathologist's ability to make accurate tissue diagnoses. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Endocrine Pathology: Differential Diagnosis and Molecular Advances offers practicing pathologists, pathology residents, endocrinologists, endocrinologists in training, veterinarians, and interested researchers a rich, up-to-date survey of the new diagnostic and molecular basis of endocrine tumor pathogenesis.show more

Review quote

"This book is complete, succinct, and clearly presented. Each chapter contains helpful tables for quick reference to differential diagnoses, immunohistochemical profiles, and other helpful information. This ambitious book meets the challenge to pathology atlases of the future by including molecular analysis in the discussion of tumor pathogenesis and diagnosis. This is an intelligently written, eminently useful, forward-looking book."-Doody';s Health Sciences Book Review Journal "...a very well-presented book...a recommended desk reference for the endocrinologist and endocrine surgeon." - Ann R Coll Surg Engl "...provide(s) comprehensive coverage...a useful and well-organized resource designed not only for the enodcrine pathologist and the general surgical pathologist, but also for the clinical endoriologist and the endocrine surgeon." - New England Journal of Medicine "...a useful and well-organized resource designed not only for the endocrine pathologist and the general suurgeon pathologist, but also for the clinical endocrinologist and the enodcriune surgeon." - New England Journal of Medicine "An excellent production with many illustrations...recommended to all endocrine clinics, hospitals and teaching institutions." - Pediatric Endocrinology Reviewsshow more
