The first textbook to fully cover the revolution in pulmonary pathology
Lung and Pleural Pathology goes beyond the scope of traditional pulmonary pathology textbooks by analyzing all of the changing paradigms that are reshaping pulmonary pathology practice. Authored by renowned pulmonary pathologists, it is the one comprehensive, up-to-date pulmonary pathology textbook that covers important new clinical approaches, including new WHO classification of lung cancer; the current status of lung cancer biomarkers; and emerging concepts in lung fibrosis and interstitial lung diseases, which have implications for newer treatments. The book also discusses the identification and characterization of recently publicized pulmonary infections.
Encompassing text, abundant color figures, and multiple tables, Lung and Pleural Pathology is a practical yet complete guide to the current pathologic diagnosis of pulmonary disease, including:
·Emerging pulmonary diseases
·Latest classifications of lung cancer and non-neoplastic diseases
·Biomarkers in lung cancer
·Pediatric pulmonary pathology
·Smoking-related lung diseases
·Small airways disease
