Incorporates new criteria as established by the 2017 World Health Organization classification of Head and Neck tumors and the 2017 World Health Organization classification of Endocrine organ tumors. Provides clinicopathologic correlations throughout to give you all the information you need to formulate a complete diagnostic report. Features more than 1700 full-color illustrations that capture the pathologic appearance of the full range of common and rare neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions.
Designed to help diagnose effectively and efficiently the full range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the head and neck. Over 2,240 illustrations depict the histologic, immunohistochemical, cytologic, and diagnostic imaging appearance of every type of head and neck pathology, including brand-new coverage of thyroid and parathyroid disorders. Includes new guidance on identifying intraoperative specimens, applying the latest molecular biological and cytogenetic techniques, and much more. A consistent, practical organization and succinct, bulleted format make the reliable answers you need easy to find.
Surgical Pathology of the Head and Neck, Third Edition is a complete stand-alone reference covering all aspects of head and neck pathology. Providing an interdisciplinary approach to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of head and neck diseases, this source promotes clear communication between pathologists and surgeons. This is the reference o
This book provides a comprehensive description of the pathology of the head and neck region, concentrating especially on those pathologic entities that are unique to or characteristic of the head and neck. The new edition retains the ten chapters of the first edition, all updated and improved, and additionally contains seven entirely new chapters and a more detailed subject index. The number of illustrations has been substantially increased, and various lesions absent in the original edition have been included. Throughout, attention is paid to correlation of pathology with epidemiology, clinical features, pathogenesis, and molecular genetics. Differential diagnosis is addressed, and information is also provided on staging, prognosis, and therapy. The authors include foremost experts in the field, some of whom are senior members of the Working Group on Head and Neck Pathology of the European Society of Pathology.
This unique reference provides a comprehensive guide to pediatric head and neck pathology in patients up to the age of 21. Chapters take a clinicopathologic approach, offering insight into the pathobiology, diagnosis and treatment of both common and rare disorders. Imaging studies and immunohistochemical techniques are discussed alongside accepted and emerging molecular tools. The authors' holistic approach ensures coverage of the surgical management principles that pathologists must understand, particularly when called upon to diagnose odontogenic tumors and cysts, as well as benign and malignant salivary gland neoplasms. The book is richly illustrated in color throughout. Each copy of the printed book is packaged with a password, providing online access to the book's text and image library. Written by leaders in head and neck pathology and surgery, this is an essential guide to solving the diagnostic dilemmas that pathologists and clinicians encounter in the assessment of pediatric head and neck disease.
Much of the diversity of head and neck diseases is due to the large number and broad function of the organs within this region. The surgical pathologist must become proficient in this subspecialty area in order to identify and categorize many different subtypes of lesions and diseases, including those affecting the thyroid and salivary glands. This book from the Cambridge Illustrated Surgical Pathology series comprehensively covers all of the methods utilized by pathologists to accurately diagnose diseases affecting all organs in the head and neck region. Coverage is not limited to findings from the light microscope but also includes other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities, and the unique orientation allows the reader to follow the progression of disease states from incipient to advanced. This book is illustrated with more than 300 color photomicrographs and accompanied by a CD-ROM of all images in downloadable format.
Featuring 900 full-color illustrations, this book is a concise and practical atlas of the surgical pathology and cytology of the head and neck. It covers the most common head and neck lesions and tumors the general pathologist sees in daily practice and will aid pathology residents and practitioners in quickly narrowing down a histologic differential diagnosis. Integral to the images provided are illustrated criteria for achieving a diagnosis—essentially what to look for when reviewing pathology slides. Differential diagnoses are shown, as are pitfalls in the diagnosis. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.
This volume in the Foundations in Diagnostic Pathology Series packs today's most essential head and neck pathology know-how into a compact, high-yield format!

Diagnostic Pathology and Molecular Genetics of the Thyroid, Second Edition, offers a comprehensive overview of the diagnostic surgical pathology, cytopathology, immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics of the thyroid diseases, including neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions. The book provides a detailed description of the surgical pathology of thyroid diseases side by side with major advances in immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics that can be used in evaluating thyroid tumors and non-neoplastic diseases.
This multiple-choice Q/A review book covers all aspects of surgical pathology, which is the largest and most time-consuming area of anatomical pathology. In addition to board review, it also serves as a useful review for recertification examinations. This edition will be significantly revised and enhanced to include more than 1,000 multiple-choice questions. Each question focuses on a specific disease entity or diagnostic problem as presented in Sternberg’s Diagnostic Surgical Pathology. Like Sternberg’s these questions will emphasize the differential diagnostic aspects of problem solving, which are then followed by answers with succinct explanations.

The dissection of surgical specimens from the upper aero digestive tract is often difficult due to the anatomically complicated nature of this area. Local environ ment dictates routes of tumour spread and surgical margins at risk and these features differ for various subsites within this part of the body. Moreover, ade quate investigation of surgical specimens of the upper aero digestive tract requires knowledge of the various types of surgical procedures used for differ ent areas and should provide data that enable the surgeon to correlate preoper atively performed diagnostic imaging with the macroscopic findings obtained postoperatively. The aim of this book is to provide guidelines for the anatomical dissection of specimens from oral and sinonasal cavities, pharynx and larynx. This is done by illustrations that combine drawings of tumours at various anatomical subsites, details of the respective surgical procedures, the specimens thus obtained, and the way to dissect these specimens as shown by colour photographs of surgical specimens handled in the way schematically outlined. The book will be of benefit for pathologists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, ENT surgeons and residents in training for these specialties. v Contents 1 Introduction . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 1 Head and Neck Specimens and Surgical Pathology 3 General Technical Notes 3 Anatomy 2 Oral Cavity . . . . . . 5 Anatomical Subregions 5 5 Lip ....
