Part of the in-depth and practical Pattern Recognition series, Practical Surgical Neuropathology, 2nd Edition, by Drs. Arie Perry and Daniel J. Brat, helps you arrive at an accurate CNS diagnosis by using a pattern-based approach. Leading diagnosticians in neuropathology guide you from a histological (and/or clinical, radiologic, and molecular) pattern, through the appropriate work-up, around the pitfalls, and to the best diagnosis. Almost 2,000 high-quality illustrations capture key neuropathological patterns for a full range of common and rare conditions, and a "visual index" at the beginning of the book directs you to the exact location of in-depth diagnostic guidance. Instructive algorithms provide detailed guidance based on 8 major (scanning magnification) patterns and 20 minor (high magnification) patterns – helping you narrow the range of diagnostic possibilities. A user-friendly design color-codes patterns to specific entities, and key points are summarized in tables, charts, and graphs so you can quickly and easily find what you are looking for. Sweeping content updates keep you at the forefront of recent findings regarding gliomas, embryonal neoplasms, meningiomas, pituitary region and pineal tumors, epilepsy pathology, peripheral nerve sheath tumors, neurodegenerative disorders, tumor predisposition syndromes, and much more. Improved pattern call-outs are now linked directly within the chapter, reinforcing the patterns for more efficient and complete understanding.

Not another textbook for neuropathology! Yes, Our publishers helped us with this last problem by we hear you and feel your pain. In fact, that was our insisting on black and white photographs. We ini initial response when we were approached to write tially protested, noting that many recent textbook the book you are now holding. In surveying the reviews seemed to be primarily guided by whether expanse of currently available neuropathology illustrations were in color (good) or black and white textbooks, however, we came to feel that there was (bad). However, upon further reflection we accepted a place for a book that could combine our career this mandate as a blessing in disguise, allowing the experiences of trying to discern what is known (and reader to focus on differences in morphology, rather knowable) with the perennially proposed question, than tincture, as a guide to correct diagnosis. In fact, "What do we need to know?" Together we tried to one of us (M. e. ) has always been a fan of black and produce a book that would be practical, understand white photography, both in histologic atlases as well able, and to the point (minimizing reading time as in the immortal photographs of artists ranging from during intraoperative consultation). We have con Ansel Adams to Diane Arbus.

The 678 page book is a highly illustrated guide for the intra-operative interpretation of central nervous system surgical specimens. Both of the two principal techniques - smear preparations and frozen sections - are described in great detail. Introductory chapters address general approaches to specimen acquisition and preparation; specific clinical and radiological features; differential diagnosis by site; tumor and non-tumor entities with specific pathological features; and normal cells and tissues potentially mistaken for abnormalities. The bulk of the text describes specific clinicopathological entities, in over 80 chapters. Most of the latter present bulleted summaries of clinical and radiological features, similarly formatted sections on cytological (smear preparations) and histological (frozen sections) findings, and detailed differential diagnoses. There are over 1500 illustrations, including radiological images, operative photographs, and, largely, color photomicrographs of smears and frozen sections. Throughout, the book illustrates the practical aspects of real-time, real-world cytological and histological diagnoses. The book is a unique resource derived from the author's over three decades of experience in the intra-operative diagnosis of central nervous system lesions. Designed primarily for pathologists, it will be extremely useful for neurosurgeons as well, in their formulations of a differential diagnoses based of lesions' sites, radiological anatomy, and pathological features.
Diagnostic Surgical Neuropathology by Location, is a practical guide for all pathologists in their initial, real-time encounters with brain of spinal cord biopsies for the immediate rendering of an intraoperative diagnosis based on the squash preparations of frozen section. The book is organized with a heavy emphasis on neuroanatomic to neuropathologic relationships best defined as a given lesion’s location with regard to its contiguous macroscopic and microscopic environments. The demonstration of the lesion’s macroscopic environment would include corresponding radiographic images, diagrams, and photographs of applicable autopsy teaching specimens for comparison; the microscopic environment would be illustrated by photomicrographs expressly composed in ways to show lesions in relation to contiguous unaffected, non-diseased tissue. The chapters progress from the cranial-to-caudal segments of the neuraxis from brain to spinal cord, respectively. The topics to be included in this book consist of all lesions likely to be encountered in the course of intraoperative neuropathologic consultation; this would encompass both primary and metastatic (secondary) forms of CNS neoplasia, non-neoplastic CNS lesions (for example, demyelinative processes), and CNS infections. Introduces neuropathology via neuroanatomic context instead of type of tissue The focus on location supports better understanding of the neuropathologic study Introduces the benefits of squash preparations for intraoperative assessment of neuropathology specimens
Greenfield's Neuropathology, the world's leading neuropathology reference, provides a comprehensive account of the pathological findings in neurological disease, their biological basis, and their clinical manifestations. Underpinning the text is a clear description of the molecular and cellular processes and reactions that are relevant to the development as well as the normal and abnormal functioning of the nervous system. The information is presented in an accessible way to readers working within a range of disciplines in the clinical neurosciences, and neuropathological findings are placed within the context of a broader diagnostic process. New for the Ninth Edition: An international editorial team of the highest calibre have recruited many new experts to provide a fresh perspective while retaining the depth, breadth, and quality of content so praised in previous editions Many new color illustrations and high-quality clinical photographs are included in image galleries to assist readers in research and clinical practice Now available in online and downloadable digital formats with rapid search functions, image collections, and live reference links Known for its practical approach, Greenfield's continues to provide trusted information to all neuropathologists and those in related specialties, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, general pathologists, neuroradiologists, and clinical neuroscientists.
This book provides the reader with an up-to-date, practical and succinct overview of basic neuropathology. It does not replace large reference textbooks in neuropathology but emphasizes key concepts and basic principles including recent advances, genetics and classification, and discusses important aspects of specific neuropathological disorders. It also gives practical hints on aspects of neuropathology, including how to best use the neuropathology service and interpret the results of pathological tests. The reader will gain a sufficiently broad basic knowledge of neuropathology which will be of use in their future clinical careers. Neuropathology Simplified is aimed at trainees and residents in neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry around the world. It may also be of use to basic scientists involved in neuroscience research and also to general histopathology trainees and residents.
Essentials of Surgical Pediatric Pathology is a clear and practical yet comprehensive guide for trainee pediatric pathologists and non-pediatric pathologists. Each chapter corresponds to one of the main subspecialties, such as dermatopathology, head and neck pathology, and system pathology. Practical guidance is given on handling pediatric specimens and the authors highlight the ways in which common conditions present differently in adults and children. Other chapters cover conditions typical of childhood, including soft tissue tumors and blue round cell tumors. The chapters begin with a brief clinical presentation, followed by a clear macroscopical and histological description of the principal pathologies seen in children. Up-to-date genetic and immunohistochemical information is provided, and the book includes hundreds of high-quality color images. Written and edited by leading international experts in the field, this is an essential resource for trainee pediatric pathologists, as well as general pathologists who may encounter pediatric cases.
The need for neuropathology reviews in epilepsy surgery tissues steadily increases. However, textbooks and case presentations highlighting and focusing on this specific topic are rare. The authors of this book reviewed their professional experience in surgical and post-mortem neuropathology studies to compile a coherent summary of: clinico-pathological findings, current classification schemes, useful protocols research data for major histopathological entities of brain lesions encountered in modern epilepsy surgery programs, which is hippocampal sclerosis, brain tumours associated with early epilepsy onset, malformations of cortical development, brain inflammation and malformative vascular lesions. They did not intend to be exhaustive but rather representative of the main lesions and pathologies encountered. Thirty-two illustrated cases constitute the core of this book and will be very helpful in current practice.
"Designed as an easy-to-use and comprehensive reference for the practicing pathologist, Diagnostic Pathology: Neuropathology is a highly anticipated addition title to the Diagnostic Pathology series offered by Amirsys.
