Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0824701682, Hardcover)This book parallels the strategy used by pathologists and pulmonologists to arrive at a patient's diagnosis in daily practice, presenting examples with histopathologic or clinical findings that challenge readers to rule out possibilities from the differential diagnosis and determine the etiology and appropriate treatment.
Emphasizes frequently encountered practical problems in differential diagnosis!
With contributions from nearly 35 pathologists and clinicians who cover both neoplastic and non-neoplastic lung diseases, Diagnostic Pulmonary Pathology
enhances communications between the pathologist and the clinician regarding lung biopsies
assesses the clinical utility of transbronchial biopsy in various disease processes
summarizes the relationship between patterns of mature fibrosis and the most common associated pathological entities
describes and recommends techniques for inflation fixation of open or thoracoscopic lung biopsy specimens
explores diseases that fill, rather than collapse or destroy, alveoli
examines the differential diagnosis of immature intraalveolar fibrosis
discusses alveolar lining cell proliferations, interstitial infiltrates, vascular diseases, and diseases causing alveolar destruction
explains diffuse, multifocal, and focal infiltrates
follows the routine path of diagnosing granulomatous diseases
considers infection and allograft rejection in pulmonary allograft recipients
aids in establishing tissue diagnosis of diseases with overlapping clinical and histopathologic features
supplies clues to differentiate malignant from nonmalignant cell proliferations
Differing in design from traditional medical references, Diagnostic Pulmonary Pathology contains 1175 cited works, micrographs, tables, and drawings, and is a time-saving, user-friendly guide for pathologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, physiologists, internists, general practitioners, and medical school students in these disciplines.
