Part of the highly regarded Diagnostic Pathology series, this updated volume is a visually stunning, easy-to-use reference covering all aspects of benign and malignant lesions of lymph node, spleen, and extranodal lymphomas. Outstanding images make this an invaluable diagnostic aid for every practicing pathologist, resident, or fellow. This second edition incorporates the most recent clinical, pathological, histological, and molecular knowledge in the field to provide a comprehensive overview of all key issues relevant to today’s practice.

Key Features

  • Unsurpassed visual coverage with carefully annotated gross and microscopic pathology, stains, ancillary tests, and detailed medical illustrations that provide clinically and diagnostically important information on typical and variant disease features
  • Designed to help the reader identify crucial elements of each diagnosis, along with associated differential diagnoses and pitfalls, to more quickly resolve problems during routine signout of cases
  • Time-saving reference features include bulleted text, a variety of test data tables, key facts in each chapter, annotated images, and an extensive index
