This comprehensive atlas presents over four hundred gross neuropathology images from post-mortem tissues, collected at autopsy over a period of thirty years. Covering neoplastic and non-neoplastic pathology of both adult and paediatric brain, spinal cord and spine disease, it offers unparalleled access to the entire central nervous system. Practical introductions and succinct descriptions accompany superb quality colour images, enabling rapid learning from the authors' wealth of real-life experience. At a time when gross images of brain and spine diseases are increasingly difficult to access, this is an essential guide to the diagnosis of neurologic diseases by post-mortem examination. A must-have practical resource for pathologists, neuropathologists, radiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons, both in training and in practice.
