Los capítulos de esta obra, que ha alcanzado una importante popularidad, presentan la información necesaria para que profesionales, residentes y estudiantes puedan tomar decisiones clínicas, tanto diagnósticas como terapéuticas, en relación con los pacientes con cáncer. A lo largo de sus siete ediciones anteriores, el manual ha crecido para incluir todos los desarrollos y avances en oncología. Para esta 8.ª edición se han incorporado los principales desarrollos en inmunoterapia y tratamientos biológicos y dirigidos. La obra pretende seguir siendo lo más completa, actual y concisa posible, sin correr el riesgo de quedar rápidamente obsoleta, algo que habitualmente ocurre en los libros sobre esta especialidad.

    Como en sus anteriores ediciones, la obra está dividida en cuatro secciones que recogen todo lo necesario de la especialidad. La sección I presenta los principios del diagnóstico y el tratamiento del cáncer; las secciones II y III se centran en las neoplasias específicas siguiendo un formato y una estructura uniforme, y la sección IV explica las complicaciones del cáncer según la afectación orgánica final, ya sea por invasión local, metástasis, paraneoplasia o tratamiento. También sigue incluyendo los interesantes apéndices con glosario de nomenclatura citogenética, las clasificaciones de la Organización Mundial de la Salud de las neoplasias hematopoyéticas (2016) y pautas o regímenes de poliquimioterapia de mayor utilidad para tratar los linfomas.

  • Cutaneous Adnexal Tumors

    Cutaneous Adnexal Tumors, 1e

    Dmitry V. Kazakov, Phillip McKee, Michal Michal, Denise Kacerovska
    Adnexal tumors of the skin are complex, with confusing nomenclature. Many lesions show marked variation in histological appearance and there is considerable morphological overlap between different entities. These tumors are relatively rare, compared for example with melanocytic lesions, but still are part of everyday routine work for all histopathologists. Therefore, many general pathologists (the majority of whom are obliged to report dermatopathology specimens) are unfamiliar with the topic and even the experts have difficulties with the more challenging cases. Although the majority of adnexal tumors represent benign lesions, malignant counterparts do occur and these often represent a diagnostic pitfall. There are many inherited syndromes in which cutaneous adnexal tumors are a feature, and failure to recognize these associations may have serious implications. This book is comprehensive and includes all recognized variants covering the broad spectrum of adnexal tumor pathology. Included are chapters dealing with site-specific lesions such as the eyelid, neck, navel, anogenital areas, etc. The format is extremely user-friendly, comprising succinct text and comprehensive microscopic illustrations. The scope is such that any variation on the theme of adnexal tumor pathology is readily available at a glance. The text is structured as follows: clinical features, histology, immunohistochemistry, genetic features, and differential diagnosis.
