Diagnostic Pathology of Infectious Disease E-Book 2nd

by Richard L. Kradin (Author)

Comprehensive and up to date, the Second Edition of Diagnostic Pathology: Infectious Disease, by Dr. Richard Kradin, is an invaluable tool for the accurate diagnosis of any infectious disease―from the common to the most challenging. The organ-based format makes it an especially useful tool for surgical pathologists’ daily diagnostic and management issues. High-quality, full-color illustrations and differential diagnosis tables accompany each lesion, clearly depicting how to recognize the morphology of organisms and the spectrum of histological responses that they may cause.

 

      • Addresses the most difficult diagnostic issues that practicing or trainee surgical pathologists face when handling infectious disease tissue specimens.
      • Highlights morphological characteristics and landmarks of tissue samples for easy access to information necessary for signing out a specimen.
      • Emphasizes the host responses critical in differential diagnosis to serve as a second opinion when non-infectious diagnoses mimic and confound the diagnosis of infection.
      • Completely revised with the latest diagnostic support and hot topics in the field: 
        • A new chapter on novel techniques in microbiology
        • A new chapter on eye infections
        • New coverage of immunohistochemical staining and other molecular diagnostic techniques
        • New discussions of human papillomavirus, a critical tool in predictive cancer screening
        • New information on infections in the immunocompromised host and related special considerations
