Cytologic examination of the cerebrospinal fluid is a technically simple, yet productive, diagnostic procedure. Here is a practical guide to this method, as used in the diagnosis of different pathologies. High-quality slides depict the common cerebrospinal fluid cell types, cell anomalies in inflammatory conditions and neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders, and cases with contaminants. It's required reading for pathologists, as well as neurologists and neurosurgeons.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This small book contains a wealth of photomicrographs and related information about anything you might ever encounter in cerebrospinal fluids (CSF). . Both students and practitioners involved in CSF examination are the intended audience and there is no doubt this book will be widely embraced by clinical laboratory scientists . and pathologists (especially cytopathologists). However, I think the audience could be much broader than that and include anyone whose clinical practice includes CSF examination -- neurologists, pediatricians, neurosurgeons, infectious disease specialists, clinical hematologists, oncologists, etc." (Valerie L. Ng, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)
