Book Description :
The Demos Surgical Pathology Guides series presents in summary and visual form the basic knowledge base that every practicing pathologist needs each working day. Series volumes cover the major specialty areas of surgical pathology, and coverage emphasizes the key entities and diagnoses that pathologists, either in training or practice, must know. The emphasis is on the basic morphology with newer techniques represented where they are frequently used. The series provides a handy summary and quick reference that any pathology resident or fellow will find useful. Experienced practitioners will find the series valuable as a portable refresher course or review tool. Pulmonary Pathology is a concise guide to all of the key pulmonary entities and diagnoses that pathologists see in daily practice. The guide provides a comprehensive view of pulmonary pathology, covering the most important areas of nonneoplastic and neoplastic lung disease, along with coverage of less frequently seen entities. The nonneoplastic portion covers infections, granulomatous diseases, acute lung injury, idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, vasculitis, histiocytoses, lung involvement in systemic disease, and transplant-related lung pathology. The neoplastic section addresses benign neoplasia, preinvasive neoplasia, malignant epithelial tumors, mesenchymal tumors, lymphoproliferative disorders, pleural neoplasia, metastatic tumors to the lung, and tumor-like conditions of the lung. The guide is consistently organized so that each topic includes definition, clinical findings, pathological findings, and differential diagnosis. Important information is featured in bullet points for speedy access, and abundant images, both gross and microscopic, highlight important pathologic features of each entity. Tables collating salient features of related entities further illuminate crucial information. References and suggested readings provide an opportunity for more in-depth study. Pulmonary Pathology is a handy resource for trainees and a useful quick reference or refresher for practicing pathologists. Book jacket.
