Intraoperative Frozen Sectionspresents diagnostic challenges involved in the evaluation in the pathology lab of specimens obtained during surgery through the case experience of expert pathologists. Sixty-three problems cover the wide range of problems encountered in intraoperative consultations. Each presentation provides the case information as presented to the consultant, the evaluation and analysis of the specimen, discussion of the results and teaching points observed in the case, and an overall comment providing additional context for the diagnostic problem that has been presented. This problem-oriented format makes the book a superb reference resource for the working diagnostician and an ideal teaching tool for the resident or fellow. Coverage includes pediatric specimens and there is a section describing recognition of artifacts. Each case presentation is supported by several high-quality color photomicrographs with detailed explanations of each image, including images of the permanent sections and immunostains where applicable.
