About the Authors
  • Pathology is an inherently subjective discipline, and therefore is often referred to as both an art and a science. Over the years, laboratory physicians have implemented special tissue stains and molecular techniques to limit subjectivity in the discipline. Beginning in the late 19th century, histochemical stains were developed to assess diagnostic biochemical reactions in tissue. Histochemistry has recently seen a resurgence in popularity because of the higher costs of other newer methods. Today, this technique is used by almost every pathology laboratory across the world. This book comprehensively covers all diseases for which that technique plays a central role in diagnosis. Every anatomic region is covered in detail with examples of appropriate staining techniques, and the book is heavily illustrated with over 850 color photomicrographs. This is the first monograph to be published on histochemistry in 15 years, and it is the only one that is diagnostically-oriented.

    • Emphasizes diagnostic aspects of histochemistry, not technological
    • Comprehensive coverage of organ systems, lushly illustrated
    • Authors are all experts in other aspects of pathology
    • Contains a CD-Rom of all images for downloading to assist in the education activities

    Reviews & endorsements

    'In the world of molecular biology, gene arrays, nanotechnology, automated staining and novel imaging systems, it is heart-warming to see the appearance of a book celebrating the survival of diagnostic staining techniques in histochemistry. Overall this is a very attractive book that deserves a place in every pathology laboratory and medical library. There are few scientific disciplines where art, aesthetics and science are so intimately combined or have such impact despite their longevity. Where are the aesthetics in a Western blot or a gel?
