About the Authors
  • This book comprehensively covers modern soft tissue pathology and includes both tumors and non-neoplastic entities. Soft tissues make up a large bulk of the human body, and they are susceptible to a wide range of diseases. Many soft-tissue tumors are biologically very aggressive, and the chance of them metastasizing to vital organs is quite high. In recent years, the outlook for soft-tissue cancers has brightened dramatically due to the increased accuracy of the pathologist's tools. All methods of diagnosis are covered here, with an emphasis on the newest immunoassays and other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities. This book's systematic description of benign and malignant primary soft tissue tumors with didactic, comprehensive panels of illustrations allows the reader to formulate a complete understanding of the morphology of tumor entities at one glance. The book covers both the most common tumor entities and more unusual diseases using more than 1,500 color images, making it a resource for beginning and senior pathologists.

    • Extensive panels of illustrations allow reader to quickly understand the histologic spectrum of tumors
    • Unique charts of tumor demography and anatomic location
    • Includes discussion of ancillary techniques
    • Expanded definition includes metastatic melanoma and carcinomas, etc.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book will be welcomed by many a diagnostic pathologist and hailed for its excellent pictures, no-nonsense practical approach, and its first-class integration of classic pathology with the data obtained by modern ancillary diagnostic techniques. The book deserves to be included in all hospital and departmental pathology libraries. It will be used as a textbook and reference by senior and junior pathologists and clinical specialists dealing with soft-tissue tumors and related lesions. Weighted Numerical Score: 100 - 5 Stars!' Ivan Damjanov MD, Doody's Reviews
