Molecular pathology is a rapidly growing field that has experienced a surge in discovery and advancements in technology. Not only is it now recognized as a subspecialty in pathology, but even general pathologists are required to learn molecular diagnostics. A condensed version of "Molecular Pathology in Clinical Practice", "Essentials of Molecular Pathology" is targeted towards the generalist market. It is a practical, user-friendly guidebook for the general pathologist and pathologist in training for everyday referencing. As with the textbook, this derivative work is divided into 8 sections: Genetics, Inherited Cancers, Solid Tumors, Neoplastic Hematopathology, Infectious Diseases, Identity Testing, HLA Typing and Laboratory Management Issues. Organized in 45 chapters, the book will discuss the clinical significance of each diagnostic test, available assays, quality control and lab issues, interpretations and reasons for testing. Topics covered include HIV testing, herpes screening, developmental disorders, bioterrorism and warefare organisms, forensics, breast cancer and melanoma, and much more. 189 illustrations, 45 of them in full color, complement the text. A must-have for every pathologist and pathology resident.
