This book is a multiauthored, comprehensive overview of the pathology of head and neck essentials, including the thyroid and parathyroid glands. The Amirsys-pioneered bulleted text is easy to follow with detailed information per disease entity. As with our other Diagnostic Pathology titles, chapters include definitions, terminology, etiologies and pathogenesis, demographics, clinical presentations, therapy, prognoses, radiologic imaging, pathology, and differential diagnoses. The pathologic features are extensively detailed with descriptions of the macroscopic features, microscopic findings, cytopathology (as indicated), and as needed, ancillary studies. The latter include histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, molecular diagnostics and ultrastructural findings. Each entity is enhanced by superior medical images, including gross and microscopic pathology, a wide range of pathology stains, and detailed medical illustrations. In addition, you’ll find cancer staging and specimen examination protocols - one of the most useful hallmarks of the series - plus detailed immunohistochemistry panels. This state-of-the-art volume will guide the reader through the intricacies of head and neck pathology to provide the information required in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of head and neck pathology.
