About the Authors
  • Fully updated throughout, the second edition of this bestselling book provides a comprehensive guide to the pathology of soft tissue tumors and tumor-like lesions. Reflecting the latest WHO classification throughout, this new edition incorporates advances in clinicopathologic, biologic and genetic studies. As such, detailed coverage of immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics is included for each entity. Soft tissue tumors are broadly defined to include metastatic melanomas, carcinomas, and lymphoid proliferations in soft tissue, enabling the reader to distinguish between easily confused entities. Chapters are richly illustrated throughout with high-quality colour images, depicting both typical histology and variants of each entity. Each printed copy of this new edition is also packaged with a password, providing online access to the book's text and images. Written and edited by renowned international leaders in the field, this is an essential guide to all diagnostic modalities in soft tissue pathology.

    • Concise tables and illustrative panels allow the reader to formulate an understanding of each entity at a glance
    • Detailed information about immunohistochemistry and genetics is integrated into the text for each entity, allowing the reader to understand tumor biology and make use of the full panoply of diagnostic modalities
    • Edited by a world leader in soft tissue pathology, providing an authoritative one-stop resource for diagnostic practice

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Every new topic starts with a bit of basic background on the normal histology relating to the entity. This is exceptionally helpful for someone new to this topic. As a textbook for pathologists wishing to improve their basic knowledge of soft tissue pathology, I would highly recommend Modern Soft Tissue Pathology. As an ST1 with minimal exposure to soft tissue pathology, I have found this book easy to read and understand. Images are extensively and appropriately used. I feel each section is well-rounded and flows nicely. I have been very impressed by the standard of this book.' British Medical Association Programme and Award Winners 2017
