This is the third volume in the new World Health Organization series on histological and genetic typing of tumours. Tumours of the haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues are covered. This was a collaborative project of the European Association for Haematolpathology and the Society for Haematopathology and others. The WHO classification is based on the principles defined in the Revised European-American Classification of Lymphoid Neoplasms (REAL) classification. Over 50 pathologists from around the world were involved in the project and proponents of all major lymphoma and leukaemia classifications have agreed to accept the WHO as the standard classification of haematological malignancies. So this classification represents the first true world wide concensus of haematologic malignancies. Colour photographs, magnetic resonance and ultrasound images and CT scans are included.

WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues is a Revised Fourth Edition of the WHO series on histological and genetic typing of human tumours. This authoritative, concise reference provides an international standard for oncologists and pathologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome. Diagnostic criteria, pathological features, and associated genetic alterations are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner. Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants further include new ICD-O codes, epidemiology, clinical features, macroscopy, prognosis, and predictive factors. This classification, prepared by 132 authors from 23 countries, contains about 1300 color images and tables and more than 4500 references.

Das neue Manual zu den Leukämien, myelodysplastischen Syndromen und myeloproliferativen Neoplasien gibt einen praxisnahen Überblick über die wesentlichen Aspekte in der Diagnostik und Behandlung. Es wurde interdisziplinär erarbeitet. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die spezifischen Kapitel zu den verschiedenen Neoplasien des Knochenmarks sowie zur aplastischen Anämie. All diesen Erkrankungen gemeinsam ist die Notwendigkeit zu einer differenzierten hämatologischen Diagnostik, welche heutzutage sehr spezialisiert ist und daher in einem eigenen einführenden Kapitel behandelt wird. Abgeschlossen wird das Manual mit einem Kapitel zur hämatopoetischen Transplantation, die sich zunehmend als Therapiemodalität für Hochrisikopatienten etabliert und weiterhin das Verfahren mit dem höchsten kurativen Potenzial bei vielen dieser Entitäten darstellt.

The Demos Surgical Pathology Guides series presents in summary and visual form the basic knowledge base that every practicing pathologist needs every working day. Series volumes cover the major specialty areas of surgical pathology, and coverage emphasizes the key entities and diagnoses that pathologists will see in practice, and that they must know whether in training or practice. The emphasis is on the basic morphology with newer techniques represented where they are frequently used. The series provides a handy summary and quick reference that any pathology resident or fellow will find useful. Experienced practitioners will find the series valuable as a portable "refresher course" or review tool. Lymph Nodes presents the full gamut of lymph node disorders and diagnoses that pathologists commonly see in practice. Traditional morphology and histopathologic features, coupled with clinical data, are emphasized. Chapters are complemented with both high-power images for analysis of cytologic features of lymph node cells as well as low-power images for assessment of lymph node architecture. The chapters cover infectious lymphadenopathies, reactive lymphadenopathies, lymphadenopathies associated with systemic disorders, lymph node inclusions, spindle cell neoplasms of lymph nodes, foreign body lymphadenopathies, mature B-cell neoplasms, precursor lymphoid neoplasms, Hodgkin lymphoma, and more. Lymph Nodes is highly illustrated throughout and provides residents and clinicians with a quick reference for rotation or review.
