Biopsy Interpretation of Soft Tissue Tumors is a practical guide and bench reference for surgical pathologists for the interpretation of soft tissue biopsies, including open and percutaneous core needle biopsies. Each chapter guides readers in a logical way, with the key differential diagnostic features of specific tumors detailed within each category, using morphologic, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural, and genetic data. This parallels and complements the normal diagnostic process. In addition to color photomicrographs the book includes numerous tables for differential diagnosis of specific morphologic features and use of immunohistochemical panels. Relevant clinical and management points impacted by the pathologic diagnosis are included.

This richly illustrated revised second edition provides a comprehensive survey of the growing role of medical imaging studies in the detection, staging, grading, tissue characterization, and post-treatment follow-up of soft tissue tumors. For each tumor group, imaging findings are correlated with clinical, epidemiologic, and histologic data. The relative merits and indications of various imaging modalities are discussed and compared. Particular emphasis is placed on MRI. The updated edition includes new chapters on soft tissue lymphoma, soft tissue tumors in the pediatric patient and biopsy of soft tissue tumors. It aims to serve both as a systematic, descriptive textbook and as a rich pictorial database of soft tissue masses.

This is a comprehensive, lavishly illustrated review of orthopaedic oncology that is multi-disciplinary, integrative and highly practical. Introductory chapters cover overviews of the basics of bone and soft tissue tumors – the pathology, radiology and surgical and oncologic management. These are followed by chapters covering all tumor types organized according to the 2013 WHO classification of bone and soft tissue tumors. Each class of tumor is dealt with in detail, with case presentations illustrating how they would be diagnosed and managed in a clinical setting. The range of variation of each tumor type is indicated with appropriate radiological and pathological images. Detailed tables and flow charts provide quick access to vital diagnosis and staging information for each tumor type. This book provides an expert, case-based approach to orthopaedic oncology and patient care for trainees and practising orthopaedic surgeons, pathologists and radiologists.

Cytopathology of Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors provides the practicing pathologist with a single reference for describing and illustrating the cytologic features of musculoskeletal tumors. Using fine-needle aspiration (FNA), the approach of this work is encyclopedic: both relatively common and relatively rare lesions are depicted. It is expected that Cytopathology of Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors will serve to widen the usage of the FNA technique which can: substantially decrease patient morbidity; lessen the complications that arise due to other biopsy techniques; and shorten the time as well as expense required for diagnosis. The chapters on soft tissue lesions are organized by direction of differentiation. Each chapter documents both the common and uncommon lesions within the tissue group. Summaries of clinical findings are given along with the histopathologic and cytologic description. Key diagnostic points (in tabular form) and a discussion of the differential diagnosis complete each section. The section on skeletal lesions is organized along predominant cell type seen in smears. This approach facilitates grouping of lesions into diagnostically useful categories, allowing the pathologist faced with an unfamiliar lesion to rapidly access the portion of the text most useful for differential diagnosis. Within each chapter, the organization is similar to that within the soft tissue chapters. The introduction discusses technical concerns, limitations of the technique, and a diagnostic approach in both tabular and narrative form. Information on grading of soft tissue sarcomas completes the introduction.

This book will help you learn about pathology as well as prepare for the pathology board examination. This book is structured in a question and answer format. This permits the reader to concentrate on areas of interest or weakness. Most of the questions are short with short answers. This facilitates moving through a large body of knowledge. Some of the questions have longer answers. In these situations, the questions were not altered because of the clinically interesting question posed. Certain topics have been repeated in a single chapter and across chapters. This was intentional. Some topics are so important to a practitioner that repetition was utilised as a learning tool. Each question is preceded by two boxes, to permit the reader to check off areas of interest, weakness or simply noting that it had been read. This allows for re-reading without having uncertainty of what was reviewed earlier.
