About the Authors
  • This comprehensive atlas presents over four hundred gross neuropathology images from post-mortem tissues, collected at autopsy over a period of thirty years. Covering neoplastic and non-neoplastic pathology of both adult and paediatric brain, spinal cord and spine disease, it offers unparalleled access to the entire central nervous system. Practical introductions and succinct descriptions accompany superb quality colour images, enabling rapid learning from the authors' wealth of real-life experience. At a time when gross images of brain and spine diseases are increasingly difficult to access, this is an essential guide to the diagnosis of neurologic diseases by post-mortem examination. A must-have practical resource for pathologists, neuropathologists, radiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons, both in training and in practice.

    • Covers both adult and childhood diseases, allowing a breadth of understanding across age ranges
    • Includes over four hundred gross neuropathology images collected at autopsy over thirty years, enabling rapid learning from a lifetime of real experience
    • Succinct, practical text written by leading international authors provides authoritative diagnostic guidance

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This excellent atlas and visual reference guide to macroscopic neuropathology is a collaborative effort between UK- and US-based neuropathologists … this is a very well presented, easy-to-read macroscopic atlas of neuropathology that should find a wide readership among trainees and established practitioners alike.' The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists

    '… a fairly comprehensive summary of macroscopic findings in neuropathology with examples of common and more unusual diseases … The book would be valuable to consultant and trainer neuropathologists, as well as general histopathologists, neurosurgeons and neurologists.' Mark Fabian, Neuropathology and Applied Neurobiology

    'This book is intended for physicians of all specialties and medical students, who should find it extraordinarily valuable … Great care was taken to choose the important entities, and to photograph them to best advantage. You will encounter neurological disease as you have never seen it in an easy and memorable read.' Jonathan D. Trobe, Journal of Neuro-Opthalmology

    'The photos are excellent with realistic color, black backgrounds, and sharp contrast. The cover just about every type of disease it is possible to see in the practice of neuropathology … it is suitable as a guide for practicing pathologists as well as for teaching medical students and residents.' Michael N. Hart, Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology
