Description: This is the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference source on papillomavirus-associated human pathology, which examines the molecular biology of the infections and discusses diagnosis and treatment methods. Abundantly illustrated, it covers all aspects of human papillomaviruses from molecular biology and pathogenesis of HPV-associated diseases, as well as natural history and epidemiology, to a detailed study of the role of these viruses as potential etiological agents of a wide spectrum of both benign and malignant human tumours. While the main focus is on HPV infections of the genital tract, lesions of the skin, respiratory tract, the digestive system, the urinary tract and the eye are also covered in detail. Written by two authors who are internationally renowned for their work, it will be invaluable for both clinicians and researchers working in the fields of gynecology, pathology, sexually transmitted diseases, genito-urinary medicine, oncology, dermatology, otorhinolaryngology, and cancer epidemiology.
Description: A text-workbook for use in secondary school and higher levels preparing ESL students for basic science courses taught in English.
Description: Description: Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women in the United States. For the pathologist, almost any breast lesion may produce diagnostic difficulty, especially due to frequently small samples (core biopsy specimens) and a variety of mimics and variants seen in specific types of lesions. Additionally, the difficulty of breast lesion diagnosis has risen dramatically in recent years due to the increased emphasis on stratifying patients for appropriate therapy on an individual basis; the wider range of both local and systemic therapeutic options, and the potential for earlier diagnosis through increased mammographic breast screening leading to a higher likelihood of a favorable outcome. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology provides a highly visual presentation of the major problems and questions that a pathologist is likely to encounter in the evaluation of common and uncommon breast diseases. Coverage includes needle core biopsy interpretation, diagnosis of precursor lesions, early stage disease, and recognition of neoplastic mimics and other misleading variants. In addition, this book emphasizes particularly difficult areas including the use of newer immunohistochemical markers. Throughout, the emphasis is on an easily accessible presentation with tables and lists of key points summarizing major findings and numerous high-quality images supporting the text. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology will be a valuable reference for every pathologist who deals with the diagnosis of breast diseases.
Description: As the definitive diagnostic atlas of the diseases of the hematopoietic system, the Atlas of Hematopathology appeals to a wide range of people who are being trained in a variety of medical fields or practicing as non-hematopathologists, and therefore, are looking for a book which can provide information in a clear, focused format, with no excessive text or details. The atlas offers effective guidance in evaluating specimens from the lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen, and peripheral blood, enabling clinicians to deliver more accurate and actionable pathology reports. Practicing physicians and those in pathology and hematology training also gain a better understanding of the nature of hematologic disorders and improve their diagnostic skills along the way. Taking a unique multi-disciplinary approach, the book covers conventional histopathology and cytopathology, as well as all important complementary diagnostic tests, such as immunophenotyping (immunohistochemical stains and flow cytometry), karyotyping, FISH and DNA/molecular studies. It offers concise textual and extensive visual coverage of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematology disorders, with the neoplastic hematology sections presented according to the most recent WHO classifications. There is also an introduction to the normal structures of hematopoietic tissues and the various multidisciplinary techniques. The atlas contains more than 900 high-quality color images that mirror the findings that fellows and clinicians encounter in practice. It provides information in a quick, simple and user-friendly manner, attracting those who are in training or are not considered experts in the field. Residents, fellows, practicing clinicians, and researchers in pathology, hematology, hematology/oncology, as well as graduate students in pathology and other clinicians workings in clinical hematology laboratories will all find it useful. Saves clinicians and researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on the diverse clinical and scientific aspects of hematopathology, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles For clinicians, fellows, and residents, correct diagnosis (and therefore correct treatment) of diseases depends on a strong understanding of the molecular basis for the disease - hematologists, pathologists, oncologists, and other clinicians will benefit from this clear, focused, annotated format Companion web site features over 900 images from the book!

Description: This colour atlas provides information on all major acoustic neurinoma procedures, and is designed to improve physicians’ skills in this specialty. With more than 50,000 new cases per year worldwide, acoustic neurinomas are among the most commonly observed skull-base tumours. They are also among the most demanding for surgeons, since great precision is needed to safeguard the auditory nerve, the facial nerve and other critical structures. The book begins with sections on the radiographic assessment of tumours, the selection of surgical approach, and pre-operative preparations. It then turns to the main surgical approaches, using hundreds of photographs-taken during actual surgery-to lead readers through each procedure in step-by-step detail. There is a special section on the use of endoscopy in acoustic neurinoma surgery, and an analysis of 50 MR scans. This practical volume should be of interest to otolaryngologists, neurosurgeons and other physicians involved in acoustic neurinoma surgery.
