About the Authors
  • This concise, practical guide is structured to reflect the thought process of the practising pathologist. A key feature is the use of algorithms to aid in reaching the correct diagnosis, for both common and complex bladder tumors and tumor-like lesions. Its coverage of diagnostic criteria is in keeping with international standards and best practice, and the practical layout provides quick access to relevant information, integrating conventional histology, immunohistochemical markers and key clinical knowledge. Topics covered include the full spectrum of pathologic conditions that afflict the bladder and urothelium, as well as the pathology of the renal pelvis, ureter and the urethra. Accompanied by numerous images, this is an essential guide for trainee and practising surgical pathologists, urologists and oncologists.

    • Provides an integrated approach to bladder cancer diagnosis, combining basic clinical details with conventional histology and immunohistochemical markers
    • Contains numerous histologic images and pathologic decision trees to aid the reader in their understanding of the diagnostic process in bladder pathology
    • Covers the full spectrum of pathologic conditions afflicting the bladder and urothelium, as well as the renal pelvis, ureter and urethra
