Biopsy Interpretation of the Central Nervous System Book Excerpt:

Biopsy Interpretation of the Central Nervous System focuses on differentiating lesions with similiar histologic appearance. Differential diagnosis based on multiple factors is emphasized to enable efficient comparison of similar entities. The concise text highlights the distinguishing histologic features of each entity, discusses the ancillary testing necessary to make a confident diagnosis, and places each lesion in the setting of its clinical significance. More than 300 full-color photomicrographs demonstrate the diagnostic features of each entity. Lists of differential diagnoses based on other factors, such as location and typical age of occurrence, are also included. A companion website includes the fully searchable text, more than 300 full-color images, and an interactive quiz bank that is ideal for board exam preparation.

Biopsy Interpretation of the Central Nervous System Book Excerpt:

"This new book carries on a strong tradition of diagnostically oriented texts established by the Biopsy Interpretation Series, in the present case focused on lesions of the Central Nervous System. Our purpose is to provide a practical guide and concise reference that can be a companion text for the general surgical pathologist, trainees in pathology and neuropathology, and clinicians who treat patients with neurological diseases that require surgical sampling. Given the heavy orientation of the Biopsy Interpretation Series to the busy and serious-minded diagnostician, we have taken this opportunity to create something new and, we think, useful. While there are certainly several excellent books on neuropathology and surgical neuropathology, the majority are reference texts that are comprehensive and encyclopedic, making them less than optimal on a daily basis to assist with interpretation. Because the central concern here is with establishing the correct diagnosis, the content is aimed at anticipating difficult diagnostic decisions and providing concise and reliable guide to their resolution"--Provided by publisher.

Diagnostic Pathology Neuropathology Book Excerpt:

Neuropathology is a subspecialty of anatomic pathology that is concerned with the study of the diseases of nervous system tissue, with the aid of surgical biopsies and autopsies. This field is closely associated with the clinical domains of neurology and neurosurgery which refer to neuropathological results for making a diagnosis. If a neuropathy is suspected and less invasive methods cannot deliver a diagnosis, a biopsy of nervous tissue from the brain or spinal cord is taken to aid in the diagnosis. When a mass is detected by medical imaging, a biopsy is generally requested. The post-mortem diagnosis of dementia and other conditions of the central nervous system is also within the scope of this field. This book includes some of the vital pieces of work being conducted across the world, on various topics related to neuropathology. While understanding the long-term perspectives of the topics, the book makes an effort in highlighting their impacts as a modern tool for the understanding of neuropathy. It will serve as a valuable source of reference for graduate and post graduate students in diagnostic pathology.

Introduction to Biopsy Interpretation and Surgical Pathology Book Excerpt:

This book is primarily addressed to the needs of the trainee histopathologist. It is intended to bridge that gap between the descriptive histopathology taught as part of the undergraduate medical curriculum and the interpretative skills required of the diagnostician. My object is to convey the basic general principles, in theory and practice. Books are, however, only adjuncts to practical experience and not substitutes for it. Indeed, to obtain the maximum benefit from this book it is essential that the reader is actively involved in the work of a diagnostic laboratory. Only in this way can the trainee become thoroughly conversant with the rudiments of biopsy interpretation. To retain detailed knowledge of the histological appearances of the plethora of diseases and their permutations to which humans are subject is beyond the mental resources of most individuals. For this reason, histopathologists probably refer to books more often than do most other specialists. This book aims to provide a core of knowledge sufficient to master the fundamental aspects, while still encouraging the intelligent use of all those indispensable atlases, monographs, and fascicles for which there is no substitute.

From the preface: "Pathologists are responsible for the interpretation of tissue samples removed for the purpose of establishing a diagnosis. This textbook has been conceived and arranged in a manner that facilitates the task of arriving at a diagnosis through the evaluation of tissues removed from patients afflicted with neurological complaints. The portion of the diagnostic work-up that is purely "clinical", such as the history of the disease and the results of the physical examination are entirely beyond the scope of this textbook...Extensive descriptions of disease processes, which are available in most of the references cited, have been omitted in favor of relatively detailed descriptions and abundant illustrations of the histologic abnormalities that, as a group, constitute a diagnostic entity."
