Atlas of Exfoliative Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is a comprehensive reference for interpreting body cavity fluid, respiratory, and gastrointestinal exfoliative cytopathology specimens. Generously illustrated and user-friendly, this Atlas guides the reader through common and unusual non-gynecologic and non-urinary exfoliative specimens to detect neoplastic and non-neoplastic disease.
Over 500 high-resolution color images demonstrate the important cytomorphological features and pitfalls encountered in exfoliative specimens. The book provides detailed descriptions for entities encompassing variations of benign serous lesions, peritoneal, pericardial and pleural fluids, cerebrospinal fluid, bronchial brushings and washings, normal and induced sputum, gastric exfoliative specimens, and anal Pap tests. Additionally, selected images demonstrating histopathologic characteristics of the lesions for morphologic correlation will appeal to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike. Written by experts from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Atlas of Exfoliative Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is an invaluable resource for any pathologist looking to improve diagnostic skills and patient outcomes using various exfoliative techniques.
