Book description

This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the pathology of the neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases that occur in the mediastinum. The pathologic and relevant clinical features are discussed, and detailed diagnostic criteria for various diseases are given, along with information about the most relevant laboratory tests. The features of thymomas, thymic carcinomas, neuroendocrine carcinomas and germ cell tumors are discussed in detail, including the utilization of immunostains and other ancillary tests in diagnosing these diseases. An algorithmic approach to the differential diagnosis of mediastinal lymphomas is given, and a novel clinico-pathologic classification helps readers diagnose and treat thymomas. Cardiac lesions, mesothelioma and other intrathoracic lesions are also reviewed. The book features more than 650 images, and downloadable copies of these are included on a CD-ROM, packaged with the print book. Pathology of the Mediastinum will be of interest to practising surgical pathologists, thoracic surgeons, oncologists and radiologists.
