Review

American Journal of Surgical Pathology, 01-FEB-00, Volume 24, Issue 2, John R. Goldblum, MD — Praise for the previous edition: “I found the third edition of Diagnostic Surgical Pathology to be a significant update and improvement over the second edition (which itself was excellent…). The differences in text and photomicrographs certainly warrant a place on any surgical pathologist’s bookshelf, even for those with the second edition.”-American Journal of Surgical Pathology –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
