Pathologists have long recognized that pediatric autopsy requires great care in technique and dissection to ensure that easily overlooked malformations are recognized and accurate diagnoses are made. The highly experienced authors have created a new edition of Handbook of Pediatric Autopsy Pathology, a comprehensive reference guide to the actual performance of the pediatric autopsy and the optimal recognition and interpretation of pathologic findings. The Handbook of Pediatric Autopsy Pathology, Second Edition covers the spectrum of pediatric pathology with particular reference to those conditions that can be identified at autopsy.
New and updated material includes microbiological studies, particularly with the advent of newly described micro-organisms causing disease. The volume also addresses new developments in metabolic diseases, new techniques of ultrasound imaging, and specialized laboratory testing. Furthermore, the book provides a wealth of practical information and bibliographic citations throughout, new copious illustrations and line drawings, numerous standard reference tables, and appendices at the end of multiple chapters.
Authored by authorities in the field, Handbook of Pediatric Autopsy Pathology, Second Edition is a valuable resource that will assist general and pediatric pathologists, neonatologists, interns and residents in training, as well as specialists in cytogenetics and ultrasound technicians in understanding the manner and cause of death in its broadest and comprehensive sense.
“The purpose is to fill the void in literature for pathologists performing pediatric autopsy. … It is written for pathology residents and physicians who perform perinatal or pediatric autopsies. … There are no other comprehensive pediatric autopsy pathology books or references which contain such rich objective information that is imperative for a comprehensive, well-done autopsy. … I highly recommend this book.” (Raquel K. Walsh Jahnke, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2014)
This new edition has large color photos throughout. Useful tables and growth curves, etc are also scattered throughout the text. The photos are large, clear and well labeled with labels and arrows. In a few instances the photos are enlarged slightly too much and as a result are slightly pixelated. But most are clear with appropriate resolution. The text is well written, understandable, and the font is easy to read. Because of the large size of the photos, often figures are not on the same page as the topic being discussed in the text, so some flipping back and forth may be necessary. Detailed instructions for autopsy procedure are included as well as chapters on pathologic findings. Overall this book nicely supplements other larger textbooks of pediatric pathology. It fills the void between autopsy books, pediatric surgical pathology books, and even embryology books. I recommend it to all pathologists and pathology residents/fellows.
