About the Authors
  • This comprehensive yet practical text reviews the pathology of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions of the pleura and peritoneum, with a particular focus on mesothelioma. The anatomy and embryology of serous membranes are discussed, and the causes, epidemiology, and clinical and radiologic features of malignant mesothelioma are reviewed. A comprehensive review of immunostains used for diagnosing serous membrane lesions is given, current treatment options for patients are outlined. The markers of asbestos exposure and their significance are also assessed. The pathology of non-neoplastic conditions of serous membranes, from peritoneal cysts and endometriosis to deciduosis and gliomatosis peritonei are also covered, as are lymphomas and soft tissue tumors in serous membranes. This makes Practical Pathology of Serous Membranes an essential resource for effective diagnosis.

    • High-quality color images and tables listing diagnostic features, immunostains and molecular findings help diagnostic effectiveness
    • There are few volumes dedicated to this subspecialty, meaning the book has particular appeal to pathologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, thoracic surgeons and trainees
    • A detailed discussion of the cytopathology of mesothelioma and other tumors in effusions and other specimens is given, helping to broaden the reader's knowledge and aid effective diagnosis
