About this book


This book provides essential, internationally applicable information in the area of orthopedic pathology with emphasis on practical diagnostic aspects, including many illustrations: roentgenograms, CT-scans, MRI, scintigraphies, as well as pictures of gross surgical specimens and microphotographs, immunohistochemical reactions and genomics. Information on histopathological and molecular diagnosis, and basic therapeutic guidelines are provided.  

This book offers generous coverage of epidemiology, clinical features, radiology, pathology, differential diagnosis and treatment, not only for common lesions, but also those less frequently encountered. Clues in the images and histopathology needed to arrive at a sharp differential diagnosis are discussed. The content is arranged based on the World Health Organization’s Consensus Classification, with the addition of other lesions not included therein.  

Tumors and Tumor-Like Lesions of Bone is aimed at general and specialised surgical pathologists, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and oncologists, in practice and in training.
