The Demos Surgical Pathology Guides series presents in summary and visual form the basic knowledge base that every practising pathologist needs every working day. Series volumes cover the major speciality areas of surgical pathology, and coverage emphasises the key entities and diagnoses that pathologists will see in practice, and that they must know whether in training or practice. The emphasis is on the basic morphology with newer techniques represented where they are frequently used. Additionally the series features ""expert tips"" from experienced diagnosticians. The series provides a handy summary and quick reference that any pathology resident or fellow will find useful. Experienced practitioners will find the series valuable as a portable ""refresher course"" or review tool.
Breast Pathology, the second volume in the Demos Surgical Pathology Guides series, provides essential information on a range of key breast entities and diagnoses, including but not limited to those that pathologists commonly see in daily practice. Traditional morphology, coupled with clinical data, is emphasised, and each chapter is complemented with as many photographs as possible, including macroscopic images. Diagnostic immunohistochemistry is included under particular headings.
The chapters cover benign and malignant entities found in the breast including proliferative and preinvasive epithelial lesions, invasive carcinoma, proliferative stromal and miscellaneous mesenchymal lesions, and metastatic tumours to the breast. Breast Pathology is highly illustrated throughout and provides a handy summary and quick reference guide for pathology residents and less experienced pathologists. In addition, it serves as a portable ""refresher course"" or MOC review tool for more experienced pathologists.
