  • "An ideal resource for the busy surgical pathologist...an essential addition to the pathologist's library...Should be kept adjacent to the microscope." (NEJM)

    "The third edition of Dr. Fletcher's textbook on tumors continues the tradition of a well-organized and clear text with abundant color images that spans the entire range of human tumors that was set by the previous 2 editions... Few of us are as articulate as Dr. Fletcher in describing how these ancillary studies really are complementary to traditional morphology rather than replacements for it. As our field changes and evolves, our future role will in part depend on what information we can provide to our clinicians and how useful it is. Textbooks such as this allow pathologists to know the best information to collect and present, from both tradtional and new wave tests, to help clinicians care for their patients." - Advances in Anatomic Pathology, May 2008

    BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended

    "Previous editions of Diagnostic Histopathology of Tumours have been required additions to the bookshelf of any practicing surgical histopathologist, and this edition will be no different. It is comprehensive, well-laid-out, beautifully illustrated, and a joy to read. Each organ system is presented clearly, and the text is very easy-to-read, and practically-oriented. The quality of the illustrations is fantastic, and photomicrographs cannot be faulted. Practical diagnostic challenges can be approached with confidence with 'Fletcher', and this third edition will continue to be an authoritative source for trainee pathologists and more experienced practitioners alike. This is a 'must-have' text for diagnostic pathologists."


    "I am delighted to report that this book not only maintains but improves upon the high standards characteristic of the previous edition....No condition is too rare to be included, ad advantage when we are at the bench and need a quick expert orientation...Reading through the many pages of this book, I was impressed not only with the depth of knowledge of each contriubter but with the writers' enthusiasm for the subject."

    The Bulletin, July 2009

    "The third edition of this classic surgical pathology textbook. A must-have for any practising surgical pathologist"
