Understanding Morphologic Features

This comprehensive review of soft tissue tumor pathology covers a broad range of practical topics useful for practicing pathologists and pathologists in training. It includes an approach to differential diagnosis based on dominant histologic patterns (spindle cell, epithelioid, pleomorphic, round cell, myxoid); a focus on distinctive tumors that arise at particular anatomic sites (gastrointestinal tract, skin, head and neck); and an emphasis on the application of immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics including an overview of recently developed markers and molecular tests.
