about

Neoplastic mimics or ìpseudotumorsî can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysisóclinical, radiologic, and pathologicóand thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

Hundreds of color images and analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies, and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of the entities described are uncommon, Neoplastic Mimics in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Pathology emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees skin cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.

This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the skin. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of skin lesions that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.

Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology Features:

  • Nearly 500 high-quality images showcase the full range of nonneoplastic and neoplastic mimics in skin
  • Concise, specific text descriptions to make the book easy to use as a visual reference
  • Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens
