Nearly 800 high-quality photomicrographs to help you generate efficient differential diagnoses and avoid diagnostic pitfalls. Detailed figure legends and handy Checklists and Key Features sections streamline information and help you better understand the pattern-based approach. The Pearls & Pitfalls and the Near Miss sections offer valuable lessons from sneaky cases. Tables emphasize salient clinicopathologic features, management implications, and therapeutic options. FAQs focus on common diagnostic dilemmas. The Sample Note sections offer templates of how to sign-out complicated cases and include up-to-date references.
