Review quote

This is a wonderfully comprehensive book... the high level of production, including the excellent quality of the illustrations, makes it a valuable practical guide for diagnostic pathologists... I would unhesitatingly recommend this book to all laboratories where urine cytology forms an important component of the cytology practice. Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists
