From the Back Cover:

In this novel, highly practical neuropathology text, Richard Prayson, MD and Mark Cohen, MD critically summarize what pathologists most need to know about the principal neuropathologies in order to diagnose neural tissue confidently in their day-to-day work. The result is a concise, well-organized guide to the differential diagnosis of the most common neuropathologic entities encountered by general surgical pathologists. The authors go to great lengths to help readers with important diagnoses on very small amounts on tissue, or decide difficult situations where everything looks the same, or cope with intraoperative consultations when time is short and sample preparations less than ideal. Replete with a wealth of micrographs covering the many neuropathologies discussed, they successfully interpret differences in morphology as a guide to correct diagnosis.
Richly detailed, Practical Differential Diagnosis in Surgical Neuropathology offers both general and specialist neuropathologists a user-friendly, decision-oriented guide to the major diagnostic problems in surgical neuropathology, one that will greatly facilitate successful day-to-day neuropathologic diagnosis, and thus the optimal care of patients.

Review:

" The chapter on tumor-like demyelinating lesions and their distinction from astrocytomas is especially important.... The main value of the book is the quick access to brain tumor illustrations and text. It will appeal to residents and fellows in neuropathology."__Journal of the Neurological Sciences.

" The text is surprisingly easy to read...any surgical pathologist would enjoy the natural flow of information given...they cover almost all neoplasms in the neuraxis and several important inflammatory diseases. In addition to the popular grading systems of diffuse fibrillary astrocytomas, specific variants of astrocytomas are delineated. The responsiveness to chemotherapy of oligodendrogliomas ( well differentiated or anaplastic) and mixed oligoastrocytomas is emphasized. Important mimics of neoplasm, such as multiple sclerosis and radiation necrosis, are discussed separately...The references in each and every chapter are relevant and quite up -to- date...This monograph contains very practical information, is very easy to read and comprehend, and is convenient to use in daily intraoperative consultation and regular sign-out ."-Doody's Health Science Book Review

"This new neuropathology text, written by two experienced and pragmatic neuropathologists, is a welcome addition and fills an important niche in our field. This book is targeted to the practicing general surgical pathologists and pathology residents. The text is concise at 171 pages, and centers on commonly encountered, rather than unusual, surgical neuropathology conditions. It is very well written, in a casual style, and the numerous asides and comments sprinkled throughout the text give the feeling that the authors are speaking directly to the reader...The book is ideally suited to have on hand in the surgical pathology suite adjacent to the operating room...General surgical pathologists will be very pleased with this new book and will be eager to add it to their libraries...Experienced neuropathologists also can learn from this readable work and and the chapters on protoplasmic astrocytomas and dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors are particularly informative...The book is also an ideal resource for pathology, neurosurgery, and neurology residents." -Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology

"...in spite of all the impressive insights into the molecular pathology of brain tumors, the neuropathologist's diagnosis is mainly based on the H&E features, and, of course, the immunohistochemical profile. This is one of the merits of this book. In addition, the authors have a good sense of humor and often make interesting pragmatic reflections. The chapters are succinct but written in an enjoyable style....this is an enjoyable and well-written textbook on the specttrum of surgical neuropathology."-Acta Neurologica Belgica

"...would be of considerable value to more senior trainees to whom most of the diseases are already familiar to some extent, and particularly in assessing one's readiness to sit for qualifying examinations." -Pediatric and Developmental Pathology
