Enzinger and Weiss's Soft Tissue Tumorsis your essential medical reference on the diagnosis of tumors of the skeletal muscles, connective tissue, fat, and related structures. No other source matches Enzinger and Weiss’sscope and depth of coverage in this complex and challenging area of surgical pathology, and no other text contains as much practical information on differential diagnosis. Microscopic findings are correlated with the latest developments in molecular biology, cytogenetics, and immunohistochemistry, providing you with a comprehensive and integrated approach to the evaluation of soft tissue specimens.
Compare what you see under the microscope to nearly 2,000 superb imagesthat capture the appearance of a complete range of pathological entities and help you relate their characteristics to their specific classifications.
Apply the latest knowledgeon FNA biopsy, molecular biology, and cytogenetics.
Make rapid and effective decisionswith the aid of extensive algorithms, and access information at a glance with abundant tables and graphs.
Take advantage of all of the essential clinical and prognostic data on soft tissue tumors that are necessaryto formulate complete sign-out reports.
Navigate through the book quickly thanks to summary outlines at the beginning of each chapter, a color-coded page design, and a consistent approach to every entity.
