An Atlas and Concise GuideeBook - 2013
Dunphy (pathology and laboratory medicine, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) helps practicing pathologists, hematopathologists, oncologists, internists, and trainees understand the characteristic morphologic, immunophenotypic, and cytogenic/molecular features of the hematolymphoid neoplasms listed in the current World Health Organization Classification of hematolymphoid neoplasms and arrive at definitive diagnoses. In 13 chapters, hematopathologists and pathologists from the US discuss various hematolymphoid neoplasms, rather than focusing on individual neoplasms in detail, and present summary tables and illustrations to show key pathologic and differential features. They include information on definitions, morphologic features, special stains, immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry techniques, differential diagnosis, diagnostic features, and special issues for normal findings; myeloproliferative neoplasms; neoplasms associated with eosinophilia and abnormalities of PDGFRA, PDGFRB, or FGFR1; myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative neoplasms; acute myeloid leukemia and related precursor neoplasms; precursor lymphoid neoplasms; mature B-cell neoplasms; mature T-cell and natural killer cell neoplasms; Hodgkin's lymphoma; histiocytic and dendritic cell neoplasms; and immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferative disorders.
