Abstract

Advances in Surgical Pathology: Mesothelioma, a volume in the Advances in Surgical Pathology series, features chapters on current and impending changes in the field with an emphasis on practical issues, recent developments, and emerging concepts. Created as a quick review, this volume delivers a concise, updated review of the pathological characteristics of mesothelioma-emphasizing the histologic correlation, clinical management, and treatment of the disease. Timely content features include recognition of precursor mesothelial lesions, the role of molecular biology in the diagnosis and prognosis of mesothelioma, the interface between the clinician and the surgical pathologist, and the legal implications of attributing disease origin to asbestos and other factors. The book provides a resource for the periodic updates in knowledge required for daily practice, for current credentialing, and for the self-assessment modules for recertification. • Concise and practical format provides a quick review of mesothelioma ideal for residents, fellows, practicing pathologists, and clinicians. • Core content addresses mesothelioma diagnosis, WHO classification, staging, imaging, biopsy, mimicking conditions, immunohistochemistry, targeted gene therapy, and the potential for stem cell treatment. • Focus on recent advances and emerging technologies helps guide readers' clinical care when treating patients with mesothelioma. • Over 110 full-color images improve diagnostic accuracy.
