Description

Designed as an easy-to-use and comprehensive reference for the practicing pathologist, Diagnostic Pathology: Breast is a highly anticipated title in the Diagnostic Pathology series offered by Amirsys. As readers have come to expect from Amirsys reference tools, Diagnostic Pathology: Breast is filled with superior medical images, including gross and microscopic pathology, a wide range of supportive immunohistochemistry, and detailed medical illustrations with numerous examples of morphologic findings. For each anatomical site, you’ll find CAP cancer staging and specimen handling protocols—one of the most useful hallmarks of the series—plus detailed immunohistochemistry panels to accompany the images. In addition, uncommonly discussed topics such as pathology of breast cancer status post neoadjuvant chemotherapy and recurrent breast cancer are covered. You'll also find new information on breast cancer classification, including profiles and classification of breast cancer based on DNA copy number changes, gene expression profiling and immunophenotyping. An added emphasis is placed on special challenges, pitfalls and potential limitations of needle core biopsies as well as on the role of immunohistochemistry in the differential diagnosis in breast pathology. This handsome volume will guide the reader through the intricacies of breast pathology and the diagnosis of breast-related diseases.
