Description:

This text presents comprehensive review of the recommendations of the Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology for reporting results of respiratory cytology specimens along with advances in diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive immunohistochemical and molecular techniques which can be performed on cytology specimens.The majority of the text focuses on the standardized terminology and nomenclature for respiratory cytology as recommended by the Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology. Each of the diagnostic categories are described in depth and formal definitions for each category are given along with cytologic criteria. Explanatory notes are given discussing limitations of the category as well as its malignancy risk and reproducibility. Management recommendations are supplied for each category. Sample reports documenting the preferred reporting format are also given. Each category is associated with a reference list establishing the evidence based nature of the categories.

An in depth discussion of ancillary testing is provided, including the utilization of microbiologic culture, immunohistochemistry, and molecular techniques. Substantial emphasis is placed on molecular diagnostics necessary for optimization of personalized testing and the appropriate use of targeted therapies. The text represents a comprehensive resource for the state of the science of the cytologic diagnosis of respiratory lesions.

User’s Review:

Review “All figures and tables are accompanied by useful legends. A very useful feature is the group of appendixes, which serves as a condensed version of the book and can be used for a quick lookup of criteria. As a book that aims to standardize respiratory cytology reporting, its ultimate success lies in the acceptance by practicing cytopathologists. … this book is a well‐written and much‐needed guideline from the Papanicolaou Society to further push for standardization of cytopathology reporting.” (Keluo Yao, Doody’s Book Reviews, May 10, 2019) –This text refers to the paperback edition.

Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published on UniedVRG. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:

⭐ I was disappointed with the quality of the pictures in this book. On page 19, the photo of the fungus is blurred. On page 55 shows ERG + cells whose photo is good. Below, it shows a CD31 + tumor, but in the photo it looks like an immunohistochemistry with blur. On page 74, they did not give the correct focus on the image and the bottom is blurred. On page 75, you have enlarged an image and it has become uncharacteristic. There are other photos very well taken and the text is good.
