Divided into fourteen chapters, this text and full-color atlas is a complete overview of the pathologic and clinical aspects of neurologic diseases. Clinical Neuropathology is written for practicing neurologists and pathologists, as well as residents and fellows preparing for the neurology and pathology boards. It provides information on the structural alterations of nervous system diseases along with their clinical manifestations. The first two chapters cover the process and goals of the neuropathologic exam and histological reactions particular to the nervous system. Subsequent chapters review major disease categories, with each section containing an overview of pathologic and clinical characteristics in general, a description of the gross and histologic features along with their clinical features, and data on pathogenetic mechanisms. Filled with tables to clarify major points, case histories to provide clinical correlates, and Board-type chapter review questions with answers and explanations, this text will be a valuable addition to all individual and reference libraries. Key Benefits: Almost 600 full color illustrations. Case histories, keyed to images, provide clinical correlation with pathology. Over 90 tables summarizing key points: useful for quick reference and exam preparation. End-of-chapter Board-type questions, with answers and explanations, for self-assessment and exam preparation.

Immunohistochemistry now complements histomorphology in classification of human neoplasms at every diagnostic pathology laboratory. As the number of antibodies used in IHC panels has increased, so has the risk of indiscriminate use of multiple antibodies. A comprehensive guide, Efficient Tumor Immunohistochemistry: A Differential-Diagnosis-Driven Approach will help pathologists make diagnoses more efficiently and cost-effectively. This practical handbook recommends simple guidelines for the resolution of most common, and some uncommon, diagnostic problems and provides guidelines for the selective use of antibodies. The text presents a tailor-made approach that requires the pathologists, oncologists and other clinicians input and active participation by formulating a working differential diagnosis on the basis of clinical information and histomorphology.

Ophthalmic Pathology: A Concise Guide provides an introductory book of essential and fundamental information that will give the reader a solid foundation in ophthalmic pathology. The volume differs from the available classic and comprehensive ophthalmic pathology textbooks in its basic and simplified ‘one month approach’ concept. The text is rich in macroscopic and microscopic pathology images, clinical images, and bullet-point lists. Each chapter (Overview; Cornea; Conjunctiva; Eyelids; Uveal Tract; Retina; Orbit; and, Optic Nerve) includes approximately 30 color figures of common eye pathology diagnoses and also reviews the normal histology of each ocular component. An assortment of commentary related to common diagnoses and differential diagnostic considerations, clinical and pathological correlations, pearls and pitfalls, and ophthalmic pathology terminology can be found in each chapter. Other topics include: the fundamental pathology of glaucoma, trauma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the phacomatoses; commonly used histochemical stains employed in ophthalmic pathology; and basic prosection of enucleation and evisceration specimens.

Aging affects neurological function leading to neurological disease As society grows older, so do the neurological problems associated with aging. These can be new neurological deficits due to the aging process itself, or the effect of aging on already existing neurological conditions. Neurologists will spend increasing amounts of time managing patients with age-related neurological complications. Geriatric Neurology brings together the wisdom of world-leading experts. They have crafted a new textbook to define this emerging subspecialty from basic science through clinical assessment and medical management to social aspects of patient care. Geriatric Neurology covers: The aging brain in neurology Assessment of the geriatric neurology patient Neurological conditions in the elderly Therapeutics for the geriatric neurology patient Management issues beyond therapeutics Comprehensive in scope but with practical focus for effective patient care, Geriatric Neurology provides top-of-class guidance for the management of elderly patients with neurological disorders.
