About the Authors
  • Practical Head and Neck Cytopathology provides an engaging and holistic approach to the cytologic diagnosis of head and neck masses, covering both the technique of needle aspiration and its microscopic interpretation. A suitable sample is critical for arriving at the diagnosis and this book provides organ-specific tips on the FNA technique. Presence of different organs and structures in the head and neck region, as well as morphologic overlap amongst disparate entities, adds to the complexity of cytologic diagnosis. This book presents an easy-to-follow, stepwise approach to diagnosis, using concise bulleted text to highlight key features. Common and infrequently encountered mimics are included and interpretative challenges are discussed, facilitating a robust diagnosis. Numerous high-quality photomicrographs aid recognition of both common and rare features. A valuable resource for trainee and practising pathologists alike, this book is based on universally-used techniques and routinely prepared material, which are relevant to cytopathologists across the globe.

    • Provides a practical and holistic approach to the diagnosis of head and neck masses, including descriptions of key clinical features, practical tips on the aspiration technique, a stepwise guide to cytologic assessment, and discussion of diagnostic challenges
    • Easy-to-follow, bulleted text provides succinct descriptions, emphasizing individual characteristics and cytologic features
    • Numerous detailed photomicrographs illustrate classical features and variations in morphology, complementing the text and aiding recognition of entities
