Abstract
Atlas of Esophagus and Stomach Pathology provides an image-based resource for those studying normal histology of the upper gastrointestinal tract, as well as the microscopic manifestations of developmental abnormalities, toxic insults, infectious diseases, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and neoplasia in the esophagus and stomach. Because modern gastrointestinal pathology practice centers on specimens obtained during endoscopic examination, the atlas focuses on biopsy pathology, providing "real-world" microscopic images and ancillary diagnostic studies for most commonly-encountered abnormalities and diseases affecting these two organs. The book is supplemented with endoscopic and special study images. Authored by nationally and internationally recognized pathologists, Atlas of Esophagus and Stomach Pathology is a valuable tool for both pathologists-in-training seeking to make "new acquaintances", and practicing surgical pathologists in need of a quick visual reference in recalling "old friends" in the world of diagnostic gastrointestinal pathology.

Abstract
The mediastinum is a virtual compartment in the chest cavity that is the seat of several vital organs and structures that can be involved in a variety of pathologic processes, including congenital and developmental abnormalities, inflammatory conditions, and benign and malignant neoplasms. The Atlas of Mediastinal Pathology provides a pictorial survey of the major disease processes that can affect this anatomic compartment, including congenital and acquired cysts, benign hamartomatous processes, inflammatory processes involving the mediastinum, and benign and malignant neoplasms. The latter includes tumors of the thymus (thymoma and thymic carcinoma), neuroendocrine neoplasms, germ cell tumors, mesenchymal neoplasms, and hematolymphoid malignancies. The use of ancillary diagnostic methods is illustrated, where appropriate, providing assistance for pathologists in arriving at the correct diagnosis.

Abstract
This atlas illustrates the range of breast lesions and their differential diagnoses, with pictorial correlation of gross and microscopic features. Where relevant, radiological images are incorporated. A description of normal, developmental and physiological breast morphology will serves as introduction to the main content of this atlas. Classification of tumors is based on the latest World Health Organisation Classification of Tumors of the Breast, 4th edition, 2012. As immunohistochemistry is a key adjunctive platform in the workup of breast lesions as well as used in prognostic evaluation of breast cancers, appropriate examples are interspersed. Molecular tools used in corroborating diagnoses and a discussion of therapy related changes are included.

Infectious diseases may be encountered in nearly every aspect of pathology. This atlas provides an informative reference for the identification of the common and esoteric pathogens, presenting in a wide array of specimen types. The focus of the presented images is on the hematoxylin and eosin-stained appearances of these infections and highlight common special stains that can be used to aid in the diagnosis of the infectious agent. Where appropriate, commentary regarding additional testing such as immunohistochemistry and molecular-based methods is supplied. The Atlas of Infectious Disease Pathology is organized primarily by pathogen type followed by discussion of the various manifestations that may occur in individual organ systems.

Abstract
This text focuses on all aspects of non-gynecologic cytopathology, from key features of benign and malignant lesions, to diagnostic pearls and ancillary testing. Although this book is written by multiple authors, all chapters follow a similar format: brief introduction of the specific organ/system (including types of specimens and techniques to obtain samples), description of normal findings, and a practical approach to diagnose benign and malignant lesions. Key cytomorphological features, current terminology and molecular diagnostic tests are also highlighted within this volume. The Atlas of Non-Gynecologic Cytology is a practical resource for cytotechnologists, cytopathologists, and pathologists who are practicing general surgical pathology and cytopathology. The book is also a valued text for medical students, residents, fellows, and other allied health personnel who take care and/or treat patients based on the histological diagnosis of diseases.

Abstract
This book provides pathologists-in-training as well as experienced practitioners an easy-to-use practical diagnostic guide for lesions involving the lung and pleura. It also serves as a reliable resource for clinicians interested in the histopathologic features that define the entities that afflict their patients. This text covers a breadth of common problems likely to cross your microscope but without a level of detail likely to satisfy a desire for deep knowledge of their biology. The fourteen chapters begin with a brief overview of normal histology before moving on to incidental findings, followed by non-neoplastic and finally neoplastic diseases. Individual diseases include a brief introduction followed by gross photographs for selected entities and multiple photomicrographs at different magnifications with detailed legends describing the findings. The introductory narratives are intentionally concise, including only essential clinical and radiological information and key pathologic features. The emphasis in this book is on the histologic diagnosis of diseases using routinely stained slides as the foundation with a focus on high-quality hematoxylin-eosin stained sections. Gross illustrations are included for those entities in which gross examination may play an important role in diagnosis. Illustrations of immunohistochemical stains are limited to those that are diagnostically relevant and/or necessary for certain tumor categories. The Atlas of Lung Pathology provides a useful resource for pathologists and practitioners at every level of experience in evaluating lung and pleural diseases likely to be encountered in any busy pathology practice.
Contents

Abstract
This text illustrates bone marrow aspirate, imprint and biopsy specimens showing characteristic features of a wide variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions. While the focus is on Wright-stained smears and hematoxylin-eosin stained biopsies, other key histochemical and immunohistochemical stains are illustrated that are vital for proper diagnosis. After a brief review of the normal bone marrow, reactive changes in the marrow are illustrated, including the bone marrow response in constitutional disorders and to metabolic changes throughout the body. This is followed by specific infectious disorders in the marrow and other non-neoplastic disorders. The remainder of the Atlas illustrates the various neoplasms that involve the bone marrow, including leukemias, lymphomas and non-hematopoietic neoplasms. The hematologic neoplasms are classified using the 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) classification. This overview of bone marrow disorders illustrates a wide variety of diseases that practicing pathologists and hematologists will encounter in their routine practice.

Abstract
This book presents the broad morphologic spectrum of the most commonly encountered diseases of the uterine corpus and cervix in an easy-to-use, practically relevant format. It emphasizes the morphologic and immunophenotypic features of disease entities, with some additional coverage of normal histology, but is not meant to be a comprehensive treatise on all aspects of uterine surgical pathology. The book is divided into 12 chapters that reflect broad clinicopathologic categorizations and presumed lines of differentiation, with 6 chapters each on uterine corpus and uterine cervix diseases. Short clinicopathologic summary descriptions are presented as figure legends for each entity, emphasizing the most salient information. The image selection focuses on classical appearances as well as less common morphologic variations. Selected images that depict classical immunophenotypes are also presented and discussed. The Atlas of Uterine Pathology serves as a very useful resource to practitioners and trainees of uterine surgical pathology, as well as to clinicians and investigators interested in the morphology of uterine diseases.

Abstract
Intestinal neoplasia comprises a large part of a surgical pathologist’s workload. Pathologists play a key role not only in the classification of malignancies but also in assisting screening programs, identifying incidental neoplasms, and guiding treatment by providing essential prognostic features for individual entities. A large variety of neoplasms affect the intestines, and there is ongoing discovery of new entities and prognostic features for known diseases. Pathologists and trainees should have a solid understanding of key morphologic features, pitfalls, and differential diagnoses. Importantly, pathologists should recognize and communicate features that help their clinical colleagues in making treatment decisions, with the ultimate goal of benefiting the patient first and foremost. The first volume of the Atlas of Intestinal Pathology provides a comprehensive yet concise, primarily visual review of intestinal neoplasms. It also serves as a useful resource primarily for pathologists and trainees in pathology by providing a concise yet comprehensive summary of morphology of intestinal neoplasia. Clinical practitioners and trainees also benefit from an understanding of the pathologic correlates to the diseases they manage.
