A comprehensive diagnostic guide for anatomic pathologists that accurately identifies salivary gland disease using fine needle aspiration (FNA). It not only illustrates the cytomorphology and histology of salivary gland specimens, but also presents and contrasts common problem areas that can lead to erroneous interpretation. Clearly and concisely written by leaders in the field, this extensive volume is a handy, practical desk reference for all facets of the diagnostically challenging area of salivary gland cytopathology.
The atlas features more than 400 carefully selected high-resolution colour images detailing critical aspects of salivary gland disease and illustrating patterns and diagnostic clues for non-neoplastic lesions, benign lesions, malignant neoplasms, and unusual neoplasms. Additionally, the book's images of the histopathology and gross characteristics of lesions provide morphologic correlations that will be invaluable to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike.
• Provides practical, expert diagnostic guidance for the full range of salivary gland cytopathology
• Illuminates common diagnostic pitfalls when interpreting FNAs
