"The fourth edition of this classic surgical pathology textbook. A must-have for any practising surgical pathologist." - PathLab, July 2013

"Highly Commended" - BMA Book Awards 2008

"An ideal resource for the busy surgical essential addition to the pathologist's library...Should be kept adjacent to the microscope." - NEJM, review of the previous edition

"It provides practicing pathologists with succinct descriptions of pertinent molecular and immunohistochemical findings. Of note, the pulmonary, gynecologic, soft tissue, and gastrointestinal chapters are especially helpful.

The colorful tables and flowcharts do an excellent job of illustrating some of the recent changes in pathology.


This book does a great job of updating readers on recent changes in tumor classification. Despite its size, it is user friendly and helpful, with an ideal number of color illustrations." - Sarah Thompson McHugh, M.D.(University of Kansas Medical Center) Doody Review Service!
