This second edition of a much praised and widely used reference manual on anatomic pathology has been extensively revised and expanded by 70+ international experts to cover the entire curriculum of anatomic pathology for a pathology residency training program, including molecular pathology, human genetics, electron microscopy, microbiology for surgical pathologists, transplant pathology, and cytopathology. In addition, the authors have incorporated recent advances in molecular pathology, cytology, and immunohistochemistry, adopted the new series of World Health Organization classification books, and used the 2002 TNM staging system and classifications throughout the book. Several new chapters on transplant pathology, the spleen, non-neoplastic skin diseases, the head and neck, the eye and ocular adnexae, the vulva and vagina, and the penis and scrotum significantly expand the book's coverage. The 2000+ new black-and-white images added to the text are also available in full color on a companion CD-ROM packaged with each book. The comprehensive, evidence-based practice information is presented in an outline format that is clear and easy to follow. A CD-ROM version of the book, including the color images, is sold separately (ISBN 1592599265).show more

Review quote

Recommended book by the Training and Education Committee of the Association of Molecular Pathology for those preparing for the Molecular Genetic Pathology board exam administered by the American Board of Pathology and the American Board of Pathology. Reviews of the First Edition: "This book has many great qualities: it is written by an impressive panel of authoritative experts; it is concise yet complete; it is well structured, practical, and easy to consult...Essentials of Anatomic Pathology achieves the challenging task of incorporating information on new ancillary tools in a general reference on anatomic pathology and at the same time rendering it in a readily accessible format without sacrificing substance. For practicing surgical pathologists, it is an up-to-date practical source of information for daily sign-out." -The American Journal of Surgical Pathology From Reviews of the First Edition... "...achieves the challenging task of incorporating information on new ancillary tools in a general reference on anatomic pathology and at the same time rendering it in a readily accessible format without sacrificing substance. For practicing surgical pathologists, it is an up-to-date practical source of information for daily sign-out. For residents and fellows preparing for anatomic pathology...examinations, it represents a precious study companion, which can complement more comprehensive textbooks with illustrations." -American Journal of Surgical Pathology "...a valuable addition to the shelves of anatomic pathology departments and undoubtedly useful to practicing pathologists and trainees alike." -Journal of Pathology "...amazingly rich in detail and up-to-date information." -Pathology "...drawing on the expertise of an impressive line up of no less than 51 contributors, the authors seemingly attempt the impossible but have nevertheless succeeded in producing a quick reference of anatomic pathology...To the trainee this is an invaluable and indispensable aid for last minute panic study. Practicing pathologists across the whole spectrum from histopathologists through forensic pathologists to microbiologists will find it useful when navigating unfamiliar or long-forgotten water after years of sub-specialization...Again one wished that this book had been around twenty years ago." -Anil Aggrawal's Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine "Covers the entire general and organ system pathology...up-to-date, comprehensive, and well done." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review From the reviews of the second edition: "The task of writing a book on the whole of pathology in fewer than 1,500 pages is something that could be considered to be close to impossible. Yet the luminaries David G Bostwick and Liang Cheng have achieved that in this splendid work. Essentials succinctly covers almost everything that could be regarded as required reading ! . I found it clear and easy to follow. ! this would be an excellent addition to any pathology department bookshelf. ! this book is a true gem." (Dr. R Chakraborty, acp News, Winter, 2006) " excellent addition to any pathology department bookshelf. Furthermore, for trainees approaching exams this book is a true gem." -ACP Newsshow more
