"Diagnostic Pathology: Soft Tissue Tumors, Second Edition strives to reflect the incredible amount of new information that has been uncovered in the field of soft tissue pathology over the last half decade, including changes in terminology and classification (per the latest 2013 World Health Organization Consensus Classification). The new edition includes new chapters and sections that detail both recently described true soft tissue entities/variants as well as mesenchymal tumors that occur outside of standard somatic soft tissue locations (e.g., viscera, gastrointestinal tract), and even those nonmesenchymal tumors and proliferations that often find themselves in the differential considerations of true soft tissue tumors. Additionally, chapters that discuss immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics as they pertain to soft tissue pathology have been remodeled to reflect the stunning proliferation of new antibodies and molecular signatures that seems to expand exponentially month by month. Perhaps most notably, the vast majority of histologic images herein are completely new and unique to the second edition. In addition, the photogalleries in a large number of existing chapters have been expanded to include both salient microscopic features as well as less common and even rare variant morphologies in an effort to more thoroughly photodocument the rich morphologic spectrum of soft tissue pathology."--Provided by publisher.

This book comprehensively covers modern soft tissue pathology and includes both tumors and non-neoplastic entities. Soft tissues make up a large bulk of the human body, and they are susceptible to a wide range of diseases. Many soft-tissue tumors are biologically very aggressive, and the chance of them metastasizing to vital organs is quite high. In recent years, the outlook for soft-tissue cancers has brightened dramatically due to the increased accuracy of the pathologist's tools. All methods of diagnosis are covered here, with an emphasis on the newest immunoassays and other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities. This book's systematic description of benign and malignant primary soft tissue tumors with didactic, comprehensive panels of illustrations allows the reader to formulate a complete understanding of the morphology of tumor entities at one glance. The book covers both the most common tumor entities and more unusual diseases using more than 1,500 color images, making it a resource for beginning and senior pathologists.

Cytopathology of Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors

Using fine-needle aspiration (FNA), the approach of this work is encyclopedic: both relatively common and relatively rare lesions are depicted.

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.
