Cytologic examination of the cerebrospinal fluid is a technically simple, yet productive, diagnostic procedure. Integrated Cytology of Cerebrospinal Fluid is a practical guide to this method 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. The integrated approach includes the use of immunocytochemical, histological, and immunohistological illustrations and quantitative date in addition to descriptions and photographs of cytologic preparations.

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)
