This practical reference uses a proven, pattern-based approach to clearly explain how to interpret challenging cases by highlighting red flags in the clinical chart and locating hidden clues in the slides. Useful as a daily “scope-side guide,” it features numerous clinical and educational features that help you find pertinent information, reaches a correct diagnosis, and assemble a thorough and streamlined pathology report.

  • More than 1,500 high-quality photomicrographs depict reactive and neoplastic processes involving lymph nodes, capturing the full spectrum of morphologic changes associated with common abnormalities, including relatively rare conditions. Captions include a morphologic description, highlighting subtle features and key diagnostic considerations.

  • Practical tools throughout the text include:

    • Tables that emphasize salient clinicopathologic features, management implications, and therapeutic options

    • Discussions of how and when to incorporate immunohistochemical and special stains, as well as the utilization of flow cytometry and molecular tools

    • Checklists for key elements of the diagnostic approach and sample notes for inclusion in pathology reports

    • Relevant endoscopic images, photographs of select gross specimens, and medical figures

    • Brief reviews of normal histology that provide contrast to succeeding patterns

    • “Pearls and Pitfalls” and “Near Misses” sections with lessons from real-life sign-out experience            

    • “Frequently Asked Questions” sections that discuss common diagnostic dilemmas   

    • “Sample Note” sections that offer a template of how to synthesize complicated or especially challenging topics
