This practical reference uses select images of clinical and pathological findings, together with succinct, expert instructions, to guide you through the decision-making process by distinguishing between commonly confused pulmonary lesions.

- Provides concise, bulleted summaries of clinical and pathological findings and relevant pictorial examples on the corresponding pages.
- Features high-quality images of similar-looking lesions side by side for easy comparison.
- Helps you accurately and efficiently answer many everyday questions such as, "Is this UIP or NSIP?" and "Is this malignant mesothelioma or reactive mesothelial hyperplasia?"
- Ideal for practicing pathologists, pathologists in training, residents, and medical students.
