The Atlas of Thyroid Cytopathology is a generously illustrated and user-friendly volume that serves as a desk reference and a practical guide in the diagnostically challenging area of thyroid cytopathology. The text is comprised of 500 high-resolution colour images that thoroughly illustrate the important aspects of the cytopathology of thyroid disease. Complete coverage of thyroid cytopathology is provided; in addition to full coverage of non-neoplastic lesions, benign and borderline neoplasms and papillary thyroid carcinoma, chapters include normal cytology, uncommon primary neoplasms, follicular neoplasms, Hurthle cell neoplasms, medullary thyroid carcinomas, and metastatic and secondary cancers. Selected images of the histopathologic characteristics of the lesions are also included for morphologic correlation, making this text attractive to both cytopathologists and surgical pathologists. Nationally recognised experts in thyroid cytopathology and histopathology provide authoritative analysis of every aspect of thyroid cytopathologic analysis.
