Key Features

  • Comprehensive coverage of all body systems and body fluids — and the pathological changes associated with various infectious agents — emphasizes areas in which the application of cytology has the greatest diagnostic value.
  • Exceptional-quality, full-color photomicrographs show both normal and abnormal tissue and also include detailed legends.
  • Discussions of clinical, differential, and cytological diagnosis accompany the illustrations of lesions and conditions in each chapter.
  • Helpful hints for improving specimen quality are provided in discussions of common errors and problems encountered in the preparation of cytological specimens.
  • Coverage of histology in organ system chapters demonstrates the histological or histopathologic corollary of cytologic findings.
  • Clear, concise descriptions include sampling techniques, slide preparation and examination, and guidelines for interpretation, leading to accurate in-house and commercial laboratory diagnosis.
  • Easy-to-use, well-organized format includes many tables, algorithms, boxes, and Key Point callouts for at-a-glance reference.

"The book is full of colour illustrations, more than 1200 in fact, and is accompanied by a clear text. The layout of the chapters has been enormously improved compared to the first edition. Reading through the book I got very enthusiastic about its quality. This book has been very much improved from its first edition and has become one of the better ones in this field."
