Abstract
The integration of clinical findings, laboratory results, and disease progression is critical for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with skin lymphoma. This atlas includes numerous clinical and histological images with diagrams, tables, and text describing each type of lymphoma in the current cutaneous classification scheme, which includes information on the recent classification scheme for cutaneous lymphoma published by the World Health Organization and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Cutaneous Lymphoma Group. Atlas of Cutaneous Lymphomas: Classification and Differential Diagnosis includes chapters on synonyms, clinical features (presentation, prognosis, and treatment), laboratory findings (histopathology, immunophenotype, and molecular), differential diagnosis, and presentation of clinical cases for each diagnostic entity. In addition, chapters are included on T-cell lymphomas, B-cell lymphomas, ancillary techniques including immunohistochemistry and molecular tests, and a glossary of terms. This book will help clarify the classification of cutaneous lymphoma and will serve as a useful tool for physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with cutaneous lymphoma.

Abstract
Atlas of Lymph Node Pathology reviews the histopathology of nodal diseases, illustrating the use of ancillary studies and includes concise discussions of pathogenesis, clinical settings and clinical significance of the pathologic diagnosis. The atlas features an overview of the benign reactive processes secondary to infectious, environmental or unknown insults, as well as relevant illustrations of virtually all primary and secondary neoplasms involving lymph nodes. The atlas also includes macroscopic images of some disorders, tables that help readers understand and comprehend diseases that look alike, and diagnostic algorithms for certain groups of diseases. Authored by highly experienced pathologists, Atlas of Lymph Node Pathology is a valuable resource that illustrates the vast majority of diseases practicing pathologists, clinicians and oncologists are likely to encounter in daily practice.

Abstract
This atlas is a comprehensive guide to the treatment and correction of scars. It is divided into four sections covering the different types of scar: atrophic and stretch marks, keloid and hypertrophic, normotrophic, and mixed. For each scar type, the various invasive and minimally invasive procedures and their results are documented with the aid of numerous high-quality photographs. In the section on keloid and hypertrophic scars, treatment is presented according to scar localization. In addition, the influence of etiology on treatment is considered, with distinction between scars due to injuries, animal bites, inflammatory diseases (including acne and varicella), and burns. Care is taken to distinguish between approaches suitable for fresh scars (in the inflammation, proliferation, and maturation phases) and those appropriate for scars present for more than one year. Potential adverse effects and complications of treatment are also explored.

The spleen is an organ which has diverse functions including immunologic and hematologic. The Atlas of Spleen Pathology describes and selectively illustrates the normal and pathologic conditions that afflict the spleen. This extraordinary collection of high quality digital images will materially aid in continuing efforts to recognize, understand, and accurately interpret the gross and light microscopic findings in spleens.

Abstract
This book provides a quick study and reference guide for physicians who treat patients with autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBDs), the most life-threatening inflammatory diseases of the skin. AIBDs are rare, and comprise less than 1% of the dermatological patients. As such, they are often given little focus in general dermatology literature, despite being complicated and demanding diseases . Autoimmune Bullous Diseases Study Guide: Text and Review is written in direct and simple diction with tables and figures to practically illustrate this difficult field. At the end of each chapter the reader is challenged to check the learned matter with multiple-choice questions. It contains protocols and follows international guidelines, making it suitable study material for courses on autoimmune bullous diseases. Residents and researchers in dermatology and adjacent disciplines will find this book useful as a quick guide when dealing with these patients.

Ce dépliant explique ce qui suit : mode de propagation du VIH, avantages et inconvénients du test de dépistage, procédure du test, fiabilité du test, délai d’obtention du résultat du test et façon de communiquer le résultat, résultat négatif, positif et indéterminé, ainsi que personnes ayant accès aux résultats de votre test.
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 2122, "Before Your HIV Test". HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. Unlike some other viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV. This means that once you have HIV, you will have it for life. AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) happens when HIV destroys your immune system, leading to serious and life-threatening infections and cancers. An HIV test only checks for HIV. It does not test for AIDS. This pamphlet explains how HIV is spread, the pros and cons of being tested for HIV, how an HIV test is done, and whether the test is accurate. Info is also provided on how you will get your test result and how long it will take, and what negative, positive, and indeterminate test results mean. Info on who has access to your test results is included.

Abstract
This manual will help oral implantologists to understand the principles that underlie the use of basal implants as a means to provide simple solutions to complex and highly demanding clinical situations without the need for prior bone grafting. It will also serve as a richly illustrated practical guide to application of the technique. The book is in three parts, the first of which discusses basic principles and related themes, including osteogenesis, osseointegration, cortical anchorage stability, biomechanics, surgical techniques, and basal implant prosthodontics. Step-by-step guidance is then offered on the application of these principles, focusing on operating techniques, 3D treatment planning, transitional and final screw-secured prostheses, and postoperative follow-up. The third part of the book addresses a wide range of clinical situations that can be treated by basal implantology, with particular attention to the treatment of high, thin alveolar ridges and the atrophic maxilla and mandible and to the correction of previous implant failures. Potential complications and postimplantation neuropathies are also discussed, with guidance on their management.
