The Pediatric and Perinatal Autopsy Manual
by Dr Marta C. Cohen (Editor), Dr Irene Scheimberg (Editor)
- The Pediatric and Perinatal Autopsy Manual is a clear and practical yet comprehensive guide for pathology trainees and non-pediatric pathologists. With chapters organized by types of autopsy, this manual answers questions such as: what do I do in cases of congenital malformation or suspected metabolic disease? What is important in the diagnosis of intrapartum and neonatal death? What must I consider in a baby with intrauterine growth restriction and stillbirth? How do I perform a post-mortem in a case of sudden death in infancy? Chapters describe the most important conditions to consider when examining the organs, both macroscopically and histologically, as well as descriptions of how to perform the autopsy. The book is richly illustrated throughout with numerous color images. Written and edited by leading experts in the field, this is an essential resource for non-pediatric general and trainee pathologists as well as forensic pathologists.
