- We can order this
Bone Pathology is the second edition of the book, A Compendium of Skeletal Pathology that published 10 years ago. Similar to the prior edition, this book complements standard pathology texts and blends new but relatively established information on the molecular biology of the bone. Serving as a bench-side companion to the surgical pathologist, this new edition reflects new advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of bone. New chapters on soft-tissue sarcomas and soft-tissue tumors have been added as well as several additional chapters such as Soft-tissue pathology and Biomechanics. The volume is written by experts who are established in the field of musculoskeletal diseases. Bone Pathology is a combined effort from authors of different specialties including surgeons, pathologists, radiologists and basic scientists all of whom have in common an interest in bone diseases. It will be of great value to surgical pathology residents as well as practicing pathologists, skeletal radiologists, orthopedic surgeons and medical students.

From the reviews of the second edition:
"This is a comprehensive coverage of the Surgical Pathology ... of bone tumors, inflammatory diseases, and cartilaginous lesions which is really the best up to date book I have ever seen. ... This is a very good reference for student, resident, fellow, and senior orthopaedic professionals." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, March, 2014)
"This is the second, retitled, edition of A Compendium of Skeletal Pathology published in 2000. ... useful for biologists with an interest in bone and cartilage development for comparative study of the pathological skeletal changes associated with various animal models. ... the book will be of great value to pathology residents and practicing pathologists, skeletal radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, medical students, and molecular biologists." (Danny Chan, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (11), March, 2010)
"This book is an extension of a first edition Compendium of skeletal pathology. It is a multi-author one since 32 clinicians pathologists and researchers collaborated in the preparation of the text. ... this book is interesting for the orthopaedic surgeon the radiologist the oncologist and the surgical pathologist." (H. Roels, Acta Clinica Belgica, Vol. 65 (4), 2010)
