Diagnostic Pathology of Pleuropulmonary Neoplasia

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Nov 13, 2012 - Medical - 470 pages

Diagnostic Pathology of Pleuropulmonary Neoplasia highlights the morphologic basis, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, and molecular biology of tumoral and pseudotumoral conditions of the lung and pleura. The volume also highlights the nuances in the diagnosis of lung and pleural conditions and the applications of today’s most recent studies in molecular biology, and the way it is applied to diagnosis and treatment. In providing an expert guide for the histopathologic diagnosis of lung and pleural tumors, this volume be of great interest to general surgical pathologists, surgeons, oncologists, and those involved in the management of patients with lung tumors.
