Diagnostic Pathology: Soft Tissue Tumors
Matthew R. Lindberg
editore: Elsevier - Health Sciences Division
Covering all aspects of soft tissue pathology, this highly regarded volume in the Diagnostic Pathology series is an excellent point-of-care resource for pathologists at all levels of experience and training-both as a quick reference and as an efficient review to improve knowledge and skills. Specifically designed as a point-of-care resource, the updated third edition uses a templated, highly formatted design; concise, bulleted text; and superior color images throughout that demonstrate the variety of differentiating factors in soft tissue tumors. Includes new chapters on recently described entities such as superficial CD34-positive fibroblastic tumor and atypical spindle cell lipomatous tumor, with numerous images detailing characteristic histology for ease of recognition Covers recent advances and discoveries in immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology of soft tissue tumors, including new IHC antibodies FOSB and H3k27me3, ALK-1 expression in angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma, and entries on BCOR-CCNB2 fusion-defined sarcoma, novel PDGFD rearrangements in dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, and RB gene loss in acral fibromyxoma Includes extensive new 8th edition AJCC staging information for soft tissue sarcomas in convenient table format Features more than 2,000 annotated images throughout, including gross pathology, a wide range of stains, and detailed medical illustrations, with coverage of key diagnostic features for each tumor as well as morphologic variants Features easy-to-reference chapters that begin with Key Facts, followed by terminology, clinical issues, macro- and microscopic features, ancillary tests and a list of differential diagnoses with bulleted characteristics Provides an organized framework that includes "Approach to Diagnosis" chapters designed to help you successfully recognize and diagnose challenging soft tissue tumors with the availability of common patterns and histologic features Enhanced eBook version included with purchase, which allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices
Interactions of the Immune and Skeletal Systems
Georg Schett, Hiroshi Takayanagie altri
editore: Academic Press Inc
Bone and the immune system are both complex tissues, which, respectively, regulate the skeleton and the body's responses to invading pathogens. Critical interactions between these two organ systems frequently occur, particularly in the development of immune cells in the bone marrow and for the function of bone cells in health and disease. This book provides a detailed overview of the many ways that bone and immune cells interact. The goal is to provide basic and clinical scientists with a better understanding of the role that the immune system and bone play in the development and function of each other so that advances in both fields will be facilitated. The focus of the book will be both on basic pathways and translational science, which will apply basic knowledge to clinical diseases. Chapter content will range from basic descriptions of the various cell systems and their development to the signals that cause them to interact during normal physiology and disease. This is a rapidly developing area that is of interest to a wide spectrum of researchers, students, and fellows in immunology, rheumatology, hematology, and bone biology--all of whom need to develop a more complete understanding of their previously separate disciplines and the mechanisms by which they interact. * Presents a comprehensive, translational source for all aspects of osteoimmunology in one reference work * Experts in bone biology and immunology (from all areas of academic and medical research) take readers from the bench research (cellular and molecular mechanism), through genomic and proteomic analysis, all the way to clinical analysis (histopathology and imaging) and new therapeutic approaches. * Clear presentations by bone biologists of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying bone cell development leading to bone and immunological diseases such as Lupus * Clear presentations by immunologists of how immune cells develop and how the immune system plays a role in bone diseases like osteoporosis and arthritis

Featuring over 1,700 illustrations - including full-color photomicrographs, drawings, and radiographs - this Second Edition is a comprehensive, practical guide to diagnosing musculoskeletal disorders. The book details the pathologic and radiologic characteristics of all bone and joint diseases, including arthritis, metastatic bone disease, osteoporosis, trauma, osteomyelitis, developmental bone disorders, and tumor-like lesions. A section on soft-tissue pathology discusses meniscal injuries, bursa, ligaments, and tendons. Although primarily a diagnostic aid, the text includes therapeutic suggestions. A glossary defines specific orthopaedic disorders. This edition has new chapters on fracture callus; the growth plate and dwarfs; tissue/bone banking-bone grafts; and giant cell tumors and differential diagnosis of giant cell lesions. New appendices cover bone biopsy and fine needle aspiration and immunohistochemistry. A companion Website will include a full-color image bank and an interactive quiz bank.

Atlas of Orthopedic Pathology
Claus-Peter Adler, Franklin H. Sime altri
editore: Saunders (W.B.) Co Ltd
The New Edition of this beautifully illustrated atlas has been completely revised and updated to depict the microscopic and macroscopic features of all types of tumours and tumour-like conditions of the bones and joints - both neoplastic and non-neoplastic. Over 900 illustrations and concise descriptions focus on the differential diagnostic aspects of each tumour or lesion and highlight variances in histologies and clinicopathological correlations.
Pathological Basis of Orthopaedic and Rheumatic Disease
