This book comprehensively covers modern soft tissue pathology and includes both tumors and non-neoplastic entities. Soft tissues make up a large bulk of the human body, and they are susceptible to a wide range of diseases. Many soft-tissue tumors are biologically very aggressive, and the chance of them metastasizing to vital organs is quite high. In recent years, the outlook for soft-tissue cancers has brightened dramatically due to the increased accuracy of the pathologist's tools. All methods of diagnosis are covered here, with an emphasis on the newest immunoassays and other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities. This book's systematic description of benign and malignant primary soft tissue tumors with didactic, comprehensive panels of illustrations allows the reader to formulate a complete understanding of the morphology of tumor entities at one glance. The book covers both the most common tumor entities and more unusual diseases using more than 1,500 color images, making it a resource for beginning and senior pathologists.

Editorial Reviews

"This book on soft tissue pathology deals with neoplasms and non-neoplastic conditions, covering essentially all major and minor entities, providing data on their histologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular biology features. The book has undergone major revision and expansion and bears very little resemblance to its predecessor edition, which was published under the imprint of another publisher.... This is an important contribution to the ever expanding literature on soft tissue pathology, written by one of the major gurus in the field....This is an important contribution to the ever expanding literature on soft tissue pathology, written by one of the major gurus in the field, ... will be welcomed by many a diagnostic pathologist and hailed for its excellent pictures, no-nonsense practical approach, and its first-class integration of classic pathology with the data obtained by modern ancillary diagnostic techniques. The book deserves to be included in all hospital and departmental pathology libraries. It will be used as a textbook and reference by senior and junior pathologists and clinical specialists dealing with soft tissue tumors and related lesions." --Doody's Review Service
