Review:

Posted on April 7th, 2016 by Book Reviews , American Journal of Neuroradiology

What is beautiful about this book... is the widespread integration of theimaging and classic pathology of the same entity. Not only does one get a deep sense of the underlying causes of the familiar imaging findings,but one is also educated in virtually all aspects of the disease, in the bullet point format...Added to this, of course, just as with everyother disease, are the key areas to understand, such as the terminologyused; the etiology and pathogenesis; clinical issues/concerns, including treatment; imaging (which, by the nature of these books, is not theprimary focus); macroscopic pathology; microscopic pathology (the keypart); other valuable tests; and differential diagnosis from a pathologic point view. ...We see a number of clinical (ie, patient) images; so if you want to seewhat a gingival Kaposi sarcoma or a discord lupus looks like, you can. The book is full of such examples and makes studying each entity farmore interesting. Drs. Thompson, Wenig, Muller, and Nelson have done amagnificent job in putting all this material together, as have their 6contributing authors. Ten sections--Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus;Pharynx; Larynx and Trachea; Oral Cavity; Salivay Glands; Jaw; Ear andTemporal Bone, Neck/Lymph (Nodes); Thyroid; and Parathyroid--encompassthe areas covered. For those who consult directly with neurosurgeons and head and neck surgeons or who attend their rounds or
participate intheir tumor boards, these books are invaluable. The histopathology, thedrawings, the charts, the descriptions, all are of the highest possibleeducational value. The book come with an eBook code that allows forsearchable items and duplicates enhanced images.

This may become one of the top resources forpathologists...Doody's Listings and ReviewsDescription
Thisis an update of an in-depth book on non-neoplastic, benign, and malignant headand neck lesions. The previous edition was published in 2011.
Purpose
Thepurpose is to provide a reference with reliable and updated information on allaspects of head and neck lesions, which the authors have done.
Audience
Itis intended primarily for pathologists and pathology residents in training. Theauthors and contributors are all pathologists, some of whom trained me. Thebook also may be used as a reference for a broad spectrum of medicalpractitioners including, but not limited to, head and neck surgeons,oncologists, and radiologists with an interest in head and neck disease.
Features
Thebook's more than 1,100 pages are organized into sections covering the nasalcavity and paranasal sinuses, pharynx, larynx and trachea, oral cavity,salivary glands, jaw, ear and temporal bone, neck, thyroid gland, andparathyroid glands. Each section begins with normal histology and anatomy ofthe site, followed by non-neoplastic lesions, benign neoplasms, and malignanttumors. The key facts and initial gallery of photographs enable the book's useas a quick reference. Different diseases are presented in a highly structuredand bulleted format that includes definitions, etiology, clinical anddemographic parameters, treatment and prognosis, imaging findings, pathologicalfeatures, ancillary studies, and differential diagnoses. The quality of mostgross and microscopic images is excellent. The book also has useful tables thatsummarize important immunohistochemical findings of different neoplasms. Theindex is user friendly.

Assessment
This may become one of the top resources for pathologists with an interest in head and neck lesions. Since the previous edition, new entities have been described and more molecular tests developed, and I washappy to see these discussed. The bulleted format makes the book user friendlyin a busy practice.
The graphics and schematic drawings are extraordinarily well done and will prove to be very helpful for teaching purposes. Thephotomicrographs are of excellent quality and at times the well-placed arrows helpto explain the points the authors are trying to convey. I personally appreciatethe discussion (again in bulleted format) in the differential diagnosis sectioninstead of just a list. This will be a great addition to departmental andpersonal libraries.
Weighted Numerical Score: 92 - 4 Stars!
