Thrombocytopenia attempts to provide a broad, but detailed overview of the syndromes associated with a low platelet count. Though most of the chapters are clinically focused, each also discusses relevant pathophysiology that enhances the reader’s insight into current and emerging management strategies.
Extranodal Lymphomas: Pathology and Management
Franco Cavalli, Harald Stein, and Emanuele Zucca
Lymphomas classically manifest themselves in the lymph nodes but can also present in other bodily tissues or systems; the organ where exactly they present may make a very great difference to the strategy that should be adopted for their management. This topic has only recently been consistently addressed as an issue on its own, apart from the rest of the lymphomas, and this text is the first to apply modern systems of classification, diagnosis and management. This text is essential reading for hematologic oncologists and hematopathologists.

Anemia in the Elderly
Lodovico Balducci, William B. Ershler, John M. Bennett
Anemia in the elderly has been properly defined as the silent epidemic, representing 3 million people in the United States aged 65 years and older. Incidence and prevalence of this condition increase with age. It differs in its etiology, pathogenesis and treatment from anemia in children and younger adults. Anemia is associated with reduced survival, increased risk of functional dependence and hospitalization, increased risk of congestive heart failure and stage renal disease and cognitive disorders. Approximately 70% of anemia in older individuals is reversible.
Human Blood Groups
The primary purpose of this book is to describe human blood group antigens and their inheritance, the antibodies that deﬁne them, the structure and functions of the red cell membrane macromolecules that carry them, and the genes that encode them or control their biosynthesis. In addition, this book provides information on the clinical relevance of blood groups and on the importance of blood group antibodies in transfusion medicine in particular.
Essential Guide to Blood Groups
Geoff Daniels and Imelda Bromilow
Essential Guide to Blood Groups will be valuable for undergraduate medical laboratory scientists and for postgraduate scientists and medical practitioners training to specialise in transfusion and transplantation. As a pocket edition, it will also be a useful addition to other reference works on blood groups for quick access to information for medical practitioners and in red cell immunohaematology laboratories.

(Essentials in Cytopathology)
Douglas P. Clark, William C. Faquin, and E.S. Cibas
Advances in molecular and genetics based diagnostics, are driving an increased interest in cytopathology as cytological specimens are the ideal substrate for this new technology. Although there are a handful of comprehensive, standard texts on the market, there is a need for portable, more concise books for easy reference. Thus, the inception of the new Essentials in Cytopathology series is intended to fill the gap in the market. This Series will fulfill the need for an easy-to-use and authoritative synopsis of site-specific topics in cytopathology. The discussions will take into account the need for increased emphasis on differential diagnoses, the how-to's on screening, cytology/hitology correlation, what the criteria are, as well as issues involved with patient interaction, such as on-site evaluation. Discussions will address safety issues as well as diagnostic pitfalls. Each volume will be site-specific and edited by leading specialists in the field. These guide books fit into the lab coat pocket, ideal for portability and quick reference. Each volume will be heavily illustrated with a 125-image full color art program, while the text will follow a user friendly outline format. A must- have for every pathologist, cytopathologist, fellow and trainee. The inaugural volume of the Series will be the Thyroid, edited by Drs. Clark and Faquin, leaders in the field of thyroid cytopathology.

Color Atlas of Immunocytochemistry in Diagnostic Cytology
Parvin Ganjei-Azar and Mehrdad Nadji
In recent years, cytology has played an increasingly important role in the diagnosis of disease, particularly those of neoplastic origin. It is not unusual for cytologic specimens to be the only diagnostic samples available from patients with cancer. Many ancillary tests traditionally performed on histologic material are now being performed on cytologic specimens. One such technique, immunocytochemistry (ICC), has already proved to be important in diagnostic tumor pathology. This atlas examines the value of ICC as well as its limitations in contemporary cytology. Methods have been refined and high-quality reagents are now available. As a result, technical problems no longer present a major concern in this field. This volume will briefly address the technical aspects of ICC by providing practical advice for the users and analytical aspects of ICC, including correct selection of markers for specific differential diagnoses and incorporation of results in final cytologic interpretation; illustrate the utilization of ICC in the resolution of some common diagnostic problems in fine needle aspiration and body cavity fluid cytology. ICC of undifferentiated malignant neoplasms, carcinomas of unknown origin, and most importantly its utilization in specific differential diagnoses that are based on cytomorpholoy and patient’s clinical history is also discussed. This practical handbook will allow for quick reference in the selection and interpretation of markers in specific differential diagnostic in the daily practice of diagnostic cytology.

Handbook of Pathology and Pathophysiology of Cardiovascular Disease
(Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine)
Stephen M. Factor, Maria A. Lamberti-Abadi, and Jacobo Abadi
This handbook consists of actual case material with a presentation of the clinical and laboratory data, an extensive discussion and analysis of the differential diagnoses, and a description of the pathology findings. The material, in problem-based format, includes 34 cases, more than 90 illustrations, an anatomy glossary, and laboratory normal values. It is intended for use by medical students in problem-based curricula, but is presented with sufficient sophistication to be useful to residents in pathology and internal medicine, and to pathologists and cardiologists. The book covers the entire spectrum of cardiovascular disease and may be unique, as there is nothing known to the authors that is comparable.
Hematologic Malignancies: Acute Leukemias
Elihu H. Estey, S.H. Faderl, and H.M. Kantarjian
Better therapy of acute leukemias depends ultimately on better understanding of the distinction between leukemic and normal progenitor cells. Thus, several chapters in this volume describe current knowledge of acute leukemia biology and discuss new classification systems that have arisen consequent to emerging insights into pathogenesis. Treatment has also improved for particular types of acute leukemia. Given our intention that the book be useful to clinicians, we pay particular attention to these advances, to management of acute leukemia in general, and to development of new therapies.

Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is a valuable resource for the seasoned cytopathologist, general and surgical pathologists, pathology trainees, and cytotechnologists.
Pathology of the Head and Neck
Antonio Cardesa and Pieter J. Slootweg
Head and neck pathology is increasingly becoming an attractive field for the new generations of pathologists, fully aware that in the era of specialization the information contained in the treatise of general surgical pathology, although extremely valuable to create the basis of their knowledge, does not provide in its full picture the specific knowledge required to meet current diagnostic and prognostic requirements. The book Pathology of the Head and Neck presents in a single volume the most pertinent and updated information needed by the interested readers. Its contents have been divided into ten chapters. The first one covers the spectrum of precursor and neoplastic lesions of the squamous epithelium. It is followed by chapters devoted to nasal cavities and paranasal sinuses, oral cavity, maxillofacial skeleton and teeth, salivary glands, nasopharynx and Waldeyer`s ring, larynx and hypopharynx, ear and temporal bone, neck and neck dissection, as well as eye and ocular adnexa.
