This sixth edition provides an overview of fetal and neonatal pathology through a system-based approach. This book contains new chapters on immunology, with a continued focus on molecular aspects of pathology in the perinatal setting. The general principles of perinatal pathology and their clinical situations are also discussed, along with specific pathological entities and their organ systems.
Keeling’s Fetal and Neonatal Pathology, sixth edition aims to help the reader treat common problems through anatomical pathology findings and is relevant to practicing and trainee pathologists, obstetricians, maternal and fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, and pediatricians.
• Cross-references between chapters to give an understanding of interconnected organ systems
• Highly illustrated with figures to aid pathological investigations
• Written from a global perspective by experts in the field
• Dr Khong qualified from the University of Sheffield Medical School. He started his pathology training at Royal Free Hospital, London and then commenced research into normal and abnormal human placentation at St George's Hospital Medical School, London. He completed his training at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford in the United Kingdom, subspecialising in perinatal/paediatric pathology. He was a recipient of an American Cancer Society Eleanor Roosevelt International Cancer Research Fellowship awarded by UICC. He is currently Senior Consultant Pathologist in SA Pathology, Women's and Children's Hospital, North Adelaide, and Clinical Professor in the Department of Pathology, and Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Adelaide. He was formerly President of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia.
• Dr Malcomson studied Medicine and Surgery at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, whilst intercalating an Honours science degree and a PhD in experimental pathology, pursuing research interests in the molecular and cellular biology of apoptosis. Postgraduate medical training in Histopathology followed and he completed subspeciality training in Paediatric and Perinatal Pathology. Subsequently, he was appointed as Consultant Paediatric Histopathologist at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital and is currently a Consultant Paediatric and Perinatal Pathologist at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. Dr Malcomson has managed the websites of both the Paediatric Pathology Society and the International Paediatric Pathology Association and has been Organizer of the British and Irish Paediatric Pathology Association’s Paediatric Histopathology External Quality Assurance Scheme. He is currently very active in perinatal pathology and the forensic pathology of babies and children.
