Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis: Clinical and Laboratory Aspects, 1st ed. 2009


Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis: Clinical and Laboratory Aspects
Christopher D. Hillyer, Beth H. Shaz, Thomas C. Abshire, James C. Zimring,
ISBN-10: 0123744326
ISBN-13: 978-0123744326



This new handbook in transfusion medicine and hemostasis aims to combine clinical and laboratory information from two fields which have high degrees of overlap into one concise, easy-to-use pocket book. This comprehensive reference guide will have the depth of information to be helpful to all physicians who order and administer blood components and specialized factors for hemostatic abnormalities, as well as those who consult and care for these often very ill patients. The breadth of the book will be ideal for pathology, transfusion medicine, hematology, and anesthesiology residents and fellows, as well as certified and specialized practitioners in these fields.

The editors have chosen to employ a standardized format throughout the book which allows each chapter to be focused on a well-defined subject consisting of less than 6 pages. Information should be easy to read, precise, and concise. Though extensive reference lists are valuable in larger texts, they are not necessary in a pocket-size handbook intended for quick reference. The editors have chosen to include key, recent publications as "Further Readings", most often from the past 2 years. A general reference list to larger textbooks and standards in the fields will be included at the end along with a list of common abbreviations and indexes that cross reference diagnostic, clinical and therapeutic commonalities..

Modern Soft Tissue Pathology: Tumors and Non-Neoplastic Conditions, 1st ed. 2010



Modern Soft Tissue Pathology: Tumors and Non-Neoplastic Conditions
Markku Miettinen
ISBN-10: 9780521874090
ISBN-13: 978-0521874090




This book comprehensively covers modern soft tissue pathology and includes both tumors and non-neoplastic entities. Soft tissues make up a large bulk of the human body, and they are susceptible to a wide range of diseases. Many soft-tissue tumors are biologically very aggressive, and the chance of them metastasizing to vital organs is quite high. In recent years, the outlook for soft-tissue cancers has brightened dramatically due to the increased accuracy of the pathologist's tools. All methods of diagnosis are covered here, with an emphasis on the newest immunoassays and other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities. This book's systematic description of benign and malignant primary soft tissue tumors with didactic, comprehensive panels of illustrations allows the reader to formulate a complete understanding of the morphology of tumor entities at one glance. The book covers both the most common tumor entities and more unusual diseases using more than 1,500 color images, making it a resource for beginning and senior pathologists.

Joseph A. Prahlow and Roger W. Byard
ISBN-10: 1617790575
ISBN-13: 978-1617790577




The Atlas of Forensic Pathology, For Police, Forensic Scientists, Attorneys and Death Investigators is a Major Reference Work that is specifically is designed for non-pathologists who normally interact with forensic pathologists. Chapters 1 through 6 will provide background information regarding medicine, pathology, forensic pathology, death investigation, cause, manner and mechanism of death, death certification, and anatomy and physiology. The next 3 chapters will deal with general topics within forensic pathology, including the forensic autopsy, postmortem changes and time of death, and body identification. Chapters 10 through 20 will detail the major types of deaths encountered by forensic pathologists, including natural deaths, drug/toxin deaths, blunt force injuries, gunshot wounds, sharp force injuries, asphyxia, drowning, electrocution, temperature-related injuries, burns and fires, and infant/childhood deaths. The final chapter includes brief descriptions dealing with various miscellaneous topics, such as in-custody deaths, homicidal deaths related to underlying natural disease, and artifacts in forensic pathology. This atlas differs from competition in that no atlas currently exists that address material for non-pathologists (detectives, forensic entomologists and pathologists), who normally interact with forensic pathologists. The book will present such images that are or interest to not only forensic pathologists but also of interest to odontology, anthropology, crime scene investigators, fingerprints specialists, DNA specialists and entomologists, etc.

Bone Marrow: A Practical Manual, 1st ed. 2011


Bone Marrow: A Practical Manual
Daniel A. Cherry and Tomislav Jelic
ISBN-10: 1570597081
ISBN-13: 978-1570597084





The intentions of this manual are to familiarize beginners with the process of bone marrow evaluation, to provide a succinct preparatory review of bone marrow pathology for the pathology and clinical hematology board examinations, to remediate practitioners whose knowledge of this field is not current, and to strengthen the skills of clinicians who apply bone marrow data to the care of their patients but who do not independently examine bone marrow specimens.

The opening chapter, Bone Marrow Basics, is a review of information that most readers will have originally encountered in medical school. Taking nothing for granted, this material is included for the purpose of closing any possible gaps in the reader s knowledge of elementary concepts, whether from primary omission or forgetfulness. The next chapter is an overview of the principles and utilities of special studies used for the genotyping and immunophenotyping of BM. It is vital that the reader have a general understanding of these tests, since genetics and antigen expression have now equaled or surpassed the importance of morphology for bone marrow evaluation. The vast majority of this manual is devoted to hematologic neoplasms in the bone marrow and closely follows the World Health Organization classification scheme that has become the international gold standard for the characterization of these disorders. This status has been achieved by integrating all relevant data into their disease definitions, including morphology, immunophenotype, genetics and clinical features. The final two chapters of this manual address specific approaches to evaluating bone marrow that is primarily or secondarily involved by lymphoma and cytopenias due to non-neoplastic causes.

Effusion Cytology: A Practical Guide to Cancer Diagnosis, 1st ed. 2011


Effusion Cytology A Practical Guide to Cancer Diagnosis
Parvin Ganjei-Azar MD, Merce Jorda PhD and Awtar Krishan
ISBN-10: 1933864656
ISBN-13: 978-1933864655




Today, cytology of body cavity fluids is an integral part of cancer staging. A positive diagnosis indicates a high-stage (III or IV) cancer in a majority of instances. General pathologists and cytotechnologists rely on routine cytomorphologic criteria to help oncologists in their staging of cancer patients. The diagnostic clarity, however, is challenged by many false negatives and occasional false positive results. The former is usually followed by an unnecessary surgical procedure in the case of an under-staged cancer and the latter may prevent treatment of a potentially curable disease due to a falsely up-staged cancer.

Effusion Cytology is a practical manual in diagnosis and interpretation of body cavity fluid (BCF) specimens. This highly illustrated volume will provide handy information for the residents, fellows and general pathologists with limited basic knowledge in the area of cytopathology. The book provides a step-by-step guide to evaluation of BCF specimens with the specific goal of identification of malignancies. Use of ancillary techniques such as immunocytochemistry is discussed where appropriate. Special attention is given to the formulation of final cytologic reports of the diagnosis of difficult cases.

Features of Effusion Cytology Include:
  • Focus on Cancer Diagnosis: The book seeks to answer the simple question - Does this fluid represent malignancy?
  • Practicality: Offers practical approaches to resolving the numerous daily technical and diagnostic problems encountered in a cytology laboratory dealing with body cavity fluid specimens
  • Use of Limited Panel of Tumor Markers by Immunocytochemistry (ICC): Describes a simple innovative technique for applying ICC to cytologic smears
  • A Practical Guide to Formulate Final Cytologic Reports: The reader will be guided as to how to convey any diagnostic difficulty or issue to the attending physician
