About the Authors
  • The major aim of this book is to de-mystify splenic pathology for non-specialist consultants and trainees in histopathology. The interpretation of pathological changes in the human spleen provides a significant challenge to the skills of even the most highly trained histopathologists. This comprehensive account of the most important and frequently encountered pathological conditions affecting the spleen is highly illustrated in colour throughout with numerous detailed macroscopic and microscopic specimens. Emphasis is placed upon the importance of adequate clinical information and technical preparation of splenectomy specimens in obtaining the best possible histopathological assessment of the tissue. A systematic, analytical approach to interpretation of pathological changes is used throughout the book. This should enable readers to feel confident in their assessment of significant processes within the spleen. This volume serves as an illustrated atlas, a bench manual, as a text, and as a source of reference, and will be an indispensable guide.

    • Highly illustrated in colour throughout
    • Systematic, analytical approach to histopathologial diagnosis of the spleen
    • Immunohistochemistry, molecular genetic data and results of other ancillary investigations included where appropriate

Annals of Oncology

    ' Each chapter is generously illustrated throughout, including immunostained text is succinct and consistently aimed at helping in the diagnostic process, including some basic molecular mechanisms … This is a splendid text which will provide help with the surgical pathology of the spleen.'
