This book is a compilation of high-yield, at-a-glance summaries for various topics on which pathologists frequently need information in a quick reference format while at the microscope (or when cramming for the boards). The authors are early-career pathologists who have compiled this book from the perspective of pathologists-in-training. The focus is not organ-based histologic criteria, but rather everything else that goes into pathologic diagnoses but is difficult to keep committed to memory. The emphasis is on immunohistochemistry, special stains, grading systems, molecular markers, tumor syndromes, and helpful clinical references. The book has a unique format in that the information is presented primarily in tables and diagrams accompanied by minimal explanatory text. It is intended to serve as a ‘peripheral brain’ for pathology residents and also practicing pathologists, where frequently needed information is readily accessible and easy to navigate.
An algorithmic approach to interpreting renal pathology, updated in light of recent advances in understanding and new classification schemes.
In pathology education within North America, there exists a wide gap in the pedagogy between medical school and residency. As a result, the pathology intern often comes into residency unprepared. Completely illustrated in color, this book lays the foundation of practical pathology and provides a scaffold on which to build a knowledge base. It includes basic introductory material and progresses through each organ system. Within each chapter, there is a brief review of salient normal histology, a discussion of typical specimen types, a strategic approach to the specimen, and a discussion of how the multitude of different diagnoses relate to each other.
Focusing on the essential information you need to know for the clinical practice of surgical pathology, this award-winning volume in the Lippincott Manual series provides concise, high-yield content that reflects today’s fast-changing advances in the field. In one convenient, portable resource, you’ll find complete coverage of surgical pathology for every organ and anatomic site —all at your fingertips for quick review and reference. Washington Manual of Surgical Pathology, 3rd Edition, is an ideal reference for surgical pathologists at all levels of training and practice.
This bench-side reference uses an algorithmic approach to guide readers to the prompt and accurate diagnosis of specimens submitted to the laboratory.

Explanatory discussions, combined with over 600 macro and micro photographs, enable the reader to make more informed, accurate diagnoses. Provides an efficient and effective way of arriving at a correct diagnosis through the extensive use of algorithms. Illustrates specific pathologic entities with over 600 macro and microscopic photographs. Presents detailed coverage of pearls and pitfalls of morphologic interpretation. Includes sections on special stains and molecular studies. Organizes information by body system to facilitate quick reference.
