Book Reviews

"Even though there are many highly rated hematopathology books on the market, there was a need for an authoritative reference book dedicated to extranodal lymphomas. This book is definitely a refreshing addition to the hematopathology literature. This book offers a systematic review, by anatomic location, of different lymphoma subtypes, both common and uncommon. Lymphomas in a certain anatomic location are further divided into primary and secondary ones. I find this approach to lymphomas to be innovative, interesting, and easy to follow, especially for surgical pathologists who deal with a wide spectrum of cases at different anatomic locations. The book follows the principles of WHO classification by describing the pertinent clinical, morphologic, immunophenotypic, and genetic features of each entity at a specific location. It also includes an extensive discussion of differential diagnosis, which I find especially useful." - Anamarija M Perry, MD(University of Cincinnati College of Medicine), excerpts from Doody’s review service, Rating - 4 Stars!
