A comprehensive reference guide to the successful performance of pediatric autopsies and to the optimal recognition and interpretation of their pathologic findings. The authors cover such major developmental disorders as hydrops, chromosomal defects, and congenital abnormalities, metabolic disorders, and review the major organ systems. Additional chapters address sudden infant death, cytogenetics, the medical and forensic autopsy, special procedures, cultures and infection control, and biological hazards at the autopsy. Numerous standard reference tables, copious illustrations and drawings, and an appendix at the end of each chapter provide a wealth of practical information and bibliographic citations.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"A very welcome, reasonably priced addition to the shelf of any pathologist who conducts paediatric autopsies... " -Bahid"...an asset to any pathologists' assistant's library." - American Academy of Physician Assistants"This book fills a much needed gap for the pediatric pathologist and for the general anatomical pathologist faced with a fetal or infant autopsy. . These descriptions are accompanied by numerous photographs and diagrams. The extensive set of proformas, lists, and tables are of very real use to even the most experienced of pediatric pathologists. . this is a very good book and an essential addition to the pathology library." (Lynette Moore, Forensic Science, Medicine, and Pathology, Vol. 2 (1), 2006)"It was a great pleasure to review this book written by Dr Gilbert-Barness, well known as a distinguished paediatric pathologist, ably assisted by her co-worker Debich Spicer. . There are five parts to the book . . Techniques are well illustrated with black and white, easy to follow photographs. . Overall this was well written and well illustrated. . It is a book which I will be pleased to have on my shelf and I would recommend it as a useful aid to teaching." (Dr M-J Evans, American College of Physicians News, Autumn, 2005)
