About this book
In this novel, highly practical neuropathology text, Richard Prayson, MD and Mark Cohen, MD critically summarize what pathologists most need to know about the principal neuropathologies in order to diagnose neural tissue confidently in their day-to-day work. The result is a concise, well-organized guide to the differential diagnosis of the most common neuropathologic entities encountered by general surgical pathologists. The authors go to great lengths to help readers with important diagnoses on very small amounts on tissue, or decide difficult situations where everything looks the same, or cope with intraoperative consultations when time is short and sample preparations less than ideal. Replete with a wealth of micrographs covering the many neuropathologies discussed, they successfully interpret differences in morphology as a guide to correct diagnosis.
Richly detailed, Practical Differential Diagnosis in Surgical Neuropathology offers both general and specialist neuropathologists a user-friendly, decision-oriented guide to the major diagnostic problems in surgical neuropathology, one that will greatly facilitate successful day-to-day neuropathologic diagnosis, and thus the optimal care of patients.
