Diagnostic Pathology Soft Tissue Tumors Excerpt :

"Diagnostic Pathology: Soft Tissue Tumors, Second Edition strives to reflect the incredible amount of new information that has been uncovered in the field of soft tissue pathology over the last half decade, including changes in terminology and classification (per the latest 2013 World Health Organization Consensus Classification). The new edition includes new chapters and sections that detail both recently described true soft tissue entities/variants as well as mesenchymal tumors that occur outside of standard somatic soft tissue locations (e.g., viscera, gastrointestinal tract), and even those nonmesenchymal tumors and proliferations that often find themselves in the differential considerations of true soft tissue tumors. Additionally, chapters that discuss immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics as they pertain to soft tissue pathology have been remodeled to reflect the stunning proliferation of new antibodies and molecular signatures that seems to expand exponentially month by month. Perhaps most notably, the vast majority of histologic images herein are completely new and unique to the second edition. In addition, the photogalleries in a large number of existing chapters have been expanded to include both salient microscopic features as well as less common and even rare variant morphologies in an effort to more thoroughly photodocument the rich morphologic spectrum of soft tissue pathology."--Provided by publisher.
