Salivary Gland Pathology: Diagnosis and Management, Third Edition is an authoritative reference to this important discipline in medicine, dentistry, and surgery. Covering the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of a broad range of pathologies, this comprehensive textbook provides insight into every facet of diagnosis and treatment for all salivary gland pathologies, and offers a wealth of high-quality clinical images, detailed surgical illustrations, and video clips of actual surgeries via a companion website.
The fully revised third edition contains new chapters on complications in salivary gland surgery and minimally invasive salivary gland pathology, and includes approximately 100 new clinical images and numerous surgical line drawings. Salivary Gland Pathology now features case presentations to place the information in context, as well as additional treatment algorithms in each chapter to assist in clinical decision making. Written by highly respected clinicians, educators, and researchers with extensive expertise in oral and maxillofacial surgery, this authoritative resource:
• Reviews the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of all salivary gland pathologies, with detailed explanations and hundreds of full-color clinical images
• Incorporates new information on the taxonomy of salivary gland tumors, neoplastic and non-neoplastic entities, image guided biopsies of salivary gland lesions, and complications in traditional and non-traditional forms of salivary gland surgery
• Offers expanded coverage of histopathology, including classification, grading, and staging of salivary gland tumors
• Features up-to-date chapters on anatomy and physiology, imaging, cysts, systemic diseases, tumors, trauma, and innovative salivary gland surgical techniques
• Includes a discussion of meta-analyses and systematic reviews to support evidence-based practice

Salivary Gland Pathology: Diagnosis and Management, Third Edition remains the definitive resource for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, and general surgeons as well as their residents providing care for patients with salivary gland pathology.
