Surgical Pathology Review fills a gap in the currently available texts, on one side of which are the massive multivolume texts that are primarily concerned with the practical aspects of histopathologic diagnosis and on the other a few standard texts that are concerned primarily with the conceptual fundamentals of pathology. This text smooths over the inevitable gaps in knowledge that, when filled, round the pathologist out into a fully developed diagnostician and prepare them for the successful completion of certification examinations. Organized by organ system and specific lesions found, the focus of the text is nonmorphologic, hard-to-remember facts associated with each lesion—a catalogue of associations considered requisite knowledge for the fully trained pathologist. The prototypical morphologic features of each lesion are briefly described, with accompanying high-quality images of the uncommonly encountered ones. Details relevant to surgical pathology and cytopathology are reviewed.
