Bladder Pathology describes and selectively illustrates the pathologic conditions that afflict the bladder and urothelium. International standards for classification and grading of flat and papillary urothelial lesions of the bladder have been carefully incorporated: Indeed, this book was in preparation for 3 years, but delayed in order to include these vitally important standards. The nomenclature and diagnostic criteria for these new and consistent standards were developed by an international team of more than 35 pathologists, including all three of the authors of this book, representing the World Health Organization and International Society of Urologic Pathologists. The standards provide, for the first time, a framework on which diagnostic features can be compared, evaluated, and integrated. This bladder biopsy interpretation book was prepared with the practicing pathologist as the foremost consideration. It reflects the most cutting-edge, contemporary practice of urologic pathology. The vast collection of full-color, highest-quality photomicrographs and well thought out tables will materially aid the user in continuing efforts to recognize, understand, and accurately interpret the light microscopic findings in bladder specimens.
The human urinary bladder is subject to a unique and extraordinarily diverse array of congenital, inflammatory, metaplastic, and neoplastic abnormalities. This book provides contemporary, comprehensive, and evidence-based practice information for pathologists, urologists, oncologists, and other medical professionals. In Bladder Pathology, a full spectrum of pathologic conditions that afflict the bladder and urothelium are described and lavishly illustrated. With its emphasis on diagnostic criteria and differential diagnoses, this book is of particular value to practicing pathologistsassisting in the pathologists recognition, understanding, and accurate interpretation of the light microscopic findings in bladder specimens. Features and benefits of this new volume include: 1,741 high-quality, color illustrations and 112 tables to illustrate the wide range of pathologic and clinical features in the urinary tract An evidence-based approach to diagnosis and patient management for infectious, nonneoplastic, and neoplastic conditions Recent advances in the molecular genetics of the urinary bladder with discussion of their current or potential impact on diagnosis and personalized patient care With emphasis on the scientific validation of current diagnostic methods and their direct application in clinical practice, Bladder Pathology is a cutting-edge resource that not only offers comprehensive research and clinical information for practicing surgical pathologists, urologists, oncologists, and their clinical colleagues, but also captures a genuine sense of excitement about recent advances in this vital, ever-evolving field.
