In the 8 years since the publication of the first edition of Essentials of Anatomic Pathology, great strides have been made in our understanding of diseases and neoplastic processes. Many clinically important new histopathologic entities have been described or more fully defined in virtually every organ. Numerous clinically important diagnostic and prognostic markers have entered routine practice. Genetic testing for the early detection of cancers and the molecular classification of diseases has become increasingly important. This is an age of enlightenment in surgical pathology, and the authors of this new volume have captured this sense of excitement herein.

This much praised and widely used reference manual on has been extensively revised and expanded to cover the entire field of anatomic pathology. The Third Edition features the incorporation of full-color images in the text with updates of new diagnostic and prognostic information. New classifications and numerous new entities and histologic variants are fully explored. Useful immunostaining biomarkers and emerging molecular targets and relevant molecular findings that have emerged from recent genomic studies are incorporated in each chapter.

Written by internationally recognized authorities, the comprehensive, evidence-based practice information is presented in an outline format that is clear and easy to follow. Up-to-date and richly detailed, Essentials of Anatomic Pathology, Third Edition offers both the pathologist-in-training and the practicing pathologist a concise summary of all the critical information needed to recognize, understand and interpret anatomic pathology.


“The book covers the entire general and organ system pathology. In the first part it also covers topics like molecular biology diagnostic techniques, human genetic disorders, microbiology for the surgical pathologist, diagnostic electron microscopy, forensic pathology and cytopathology. In the second part, the book covers the specific diseases that affect each organ system. The important things are emphasized and are easily found. Histopathologic findings are supplemented with ancillary data providing, in one place, truly comprehensive coverage of each pathologic entity. . .This is a very good outline of pathology that will be used by residents preparing for the specialty boards. It is up to date, comprehensive, and well done.” -Doody’s Health Sciences Book Review Journal

“This book is concisely written heady-duty manual with a broad and extensive spectrum, covering all aspects of Anatomical Pathology and (surprisingly!) including Forensic Pathology…quick reference manual with comprehensive coverage of all aspects of Anatomical Pathology combined with a simple layout. To the trainee this therefore is an invaluable and indispensable aid for last minute panic induced study. Practicing pathologists will find it useful when navigating unfamiliar or long-forgotten waters after years of sub-specialisation….The book is laid out in two parts and follows the traditional tried-and-tested pattern of pathology teaching: General Pathology followed by Systemic Pathology…The chapter on Breast Pathology is a work of art….At the end of each chapter the authors provide a helpful list of suggested reading. This is a helpful inclusion….Priced at $99.00 for the paperback version the book is good value for money and should be affordable. Big departments of pathology with a number of trainees should invest in the hardback version.” – Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine

“The present book is presented in a user-friendly format and will rarely gather dust on the shelves of a pathologist…it can be recommend not only to practicing pathologists, but also to pathologists in training, to medical students and to physician’s from other specializations that have a special interest in surgical pathology.” -Annals of Anatomy

“This book has many great qualities: it is written by an impressive panel of authoritative experts; it is concise yet complete; it is well structured, practical, and easy to consult…Essentials of Anatomic Pathology achieves the challenging task of incorporating information on new ancillary tools in a general reference on anatomic pathology and at the same time rendering it in a readily accessible format without sacrificing substance. For practicing surgical pathologists, it is an up-to-date practical source of information for daily sign-out.” -The American Journal of Surgical Pathology –This text refers to the Paperback edition.

  1. palm beach air conditioning company First off I want to say wonderful nfo! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!
