Atlas of Genetic Diagnosis and Counseling, 2nd ed. 2012

Atlas of Genetic Diagnosis and Counseling 
Harold Chen 
ISBN-10: 1461410363 
ISBN-13: 978-1461410362 

Dr. Chen shares his almost 40 years of clinical genetics practice in a comprehensive pictorial atlas of almost 250 genetic disorders, malformations, and malformation syndromes. The author provides a detailed outline for each disorder, describing its genetics, basic defects, clinical features, diagnostic tests, and counseling issues, including recurrence risk, prenatal diagnosis, and management. Numerous color photographs of prenatal ultrasounds, imagings, cytogenetics, and postmortem findings illustrate the clinical features of patients at different ages, patients with varying degrees of severity, and the optimal diagnostic strategies. The disorders cited are supplemented by case histories and diagnostic confirmation by cytogenetics, biochemical, and molecular techniques, when available. The Atlas of Genetic Diagnosis and Counseling will help all physicians to understand and recognize genetic diseases and malformation syndromes and better evaluate, counsel, and manage affected patients. In this new edition, 47 additional genetic disorders are added, as well as extensive updates made to the previous disorders. New illustrations, as previous edition, will be supplemented by case and family history, clinical features, and laboratory data, especially molecular confirmation.

Functional Ultrastructure: Atlas of Tissue Biology and Pathology, 2nd ed. 2010

Functional Ultrastructure: Atlas of Tissue Biology and Pathology 
Margit Pavelka and Jürgen Roth 
ISBN-10: 3211993894 
ISBN-13: 978-3211993897 

This atlas of functional ultrastructure provides a detailed insight into the complex structure and organization of cells and tissues. Further, highlights of specific cellular and tissue functions, as well as the dynamics of diverse intracellular processes are provided. Highly informative and high-quality electron micrographs are complemented by explanatory texts, selected references and schemes. Emphasis is placed on an integrated view of structure and function to illustrate the concept that subcellular organelles provide the structural foundation for fundamental processes of living organisms. The first part of the atlas covers the cellular organelles, and illustrates their characteristic changes due to experimental manipulations or occurring under pathological conditions. The second part then illustrates the principles of tissue organization and function, including selected examples ranging from diverse epithelia and mesenchymal cells to muscle and sensory cells, cells of the nervous system and of the peripheral blood. In addition to their normal appearance, typical fine structural changes resulting from experimental induction or pathological situations complete this part of the atlas.



Lymph Node Cytopathology, 1st ed. 2011

Lymph Node Cytopathology
(Essentials in Cytopathology)
Stefan E. Pambuccian and Ricardo H. Bardales
ISBN-10: 1441969632
ISBN-13: 978-1441969637

This volume in the Essentials in Cytopathology book series will focus on the cytopathology of lymph nodes. It will address the topic of fine needle aspiration of lymph nodes and fulfill the need for an easy-to-use and authoritative synopsis of lymph node cytopathology. The book with adopt an algorithmic diagnostic approach, starting from the cytomorphologic pattern of the lymph node aspirate. The focus will be on the appropriate and effective use of ancillary studies (immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, fluorescence in situ hybridization and molecular techniques) and integration of their results into the final diagnosis. The book will present the cytopathologic features and differential diagnoses for the major cytologic patterns in lymph node fine needle aspiration. The entities typically falling within each of these patterns will be discussed with illustration of the spectrum of cytologic features, differential diagnoses and pitfalls. The book will cover the full spectrum of benign and malignant primary conditions of the lymph nodes, with emphasis on common disorders. Discussion of metastatic conditions will be restricted to those that are relevant to the differential diagnosis of primary lymphoid disorders. This book is designed as an easy to use resource that fits into the lab coat pocket, ideal for portability and quick reference. It is heavily illustrated and contains useful algorithms that guide the reader through the differential diagnosis of common and uncommon entities encountered in lymph node aspirates. The accompanying text follows an easy to use pattern-based outline. A useful resource for every pathologist, cytopathologist, fellow and trainee.

Essential Concepts in Molecular Pathology, 1st ed. 2010

Essential Concepts in Molecular Pathology
William B. Coleman and Gregory J. Tsongalis
ISBN-10: 0123744180
ISBN-13: 978-0123744180

This streamlined "essential" version of the Molecular Pathology (2009) textbook extracts key information, illustrations and photographs from the main textbook in the same number and organization of chapters. It is aimed at teaching students in courses where the full textbook is not needed, but the concepts included are desirable (such as graduate students in allied health programs or undergraduates). It is also aimed at students who are enrolled in courses that primarily use a traditional pathology textbook, but need the complementary concepts of molecular pathology (such as medical students). Further, the textbook will be valuable for pathology residents and other postdoctoral fellows who desire to advance their understanding of molecular mechanisms of disease beyond what they learned in medical/graduate school.

  • Offers an essential introduction to molecular genetics and the "molecular" aspects of human disease
  • Teaches from the perspective of "integrative systems biology," which encompasses the intersection of all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to understanding human disease
  • In-depth presentation of the principles and practice of molecular pathology: molecular pathogenesis, molecular mechanisms of disease, and how the molecular pathogenesis of disease parallels the evolution of the disease using histopathology.
  • "Traditional" pathology section provides state-of-the-art information on the major forms of disease, their pathologies, and the molecular mechanisms that drive these diseases.
  • Explains the practice of "molecular medicine" and the translational aspects of molecular pathology: molecular diagnostics, molecular assessment, and personalized medicine
  • Student web site hosts "self-assessment" questions; Professor web site hosts all figures from book
  • Each chapter ends with Key Summary Points and Suggested Readings
