Atlas on the Human Testis: Normal Morphology and Pathologypresents histological illustrative material from paraffin and semi-thin sections of the human testis which are routinely used in the assessment of testicular morphology, allowing an early detection of carcinomain situand more advanced pathological changes of the testicular parenchyma. The early detection of cancerin situis based on the careful morphological investigation of the biopsy and immunohistochemistry (IHC). Therefore, this atlas contains detailed descriptions of IHC methods as well as modern molecular biological methods such as DNA microarrays and proteomics and advanced microscopy techniques related to the testicular biopsy.

Adequate evaluation of the testicular biopsy leads to high cure rates of testicular neoplasms which can be used as a basis to successfully treat infertility in men.

Atlas on the Human Testis: Normal Morphology and Pathologyis a valuable reference tool which will appeal to andrologists, urologists, pathologists, clinical embryologists, as well as reproductive biology scientists.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The purpose is to present a concise review of the human testis in terms of its development, physiology, morphology, and pathology. The atlas serves as ready reference for anyone involved in embryology, reproduction physiology, or treatment of clinical disorders. These noteworthy goals are largely met. The audience includes students, reproductive biologists, endocrinologists, and urologists. The authors are experts in their fields. . This should serve as a ready reference for those involved in reproductive biology and male infertility." (Peter A. McCue, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2013)
