Fully updated and rewritten for the cutting-edge, Spencer’s Pathology of the Lung, 6th edition (PDF) follows in its predecessors’ footsteps as the gold-standard textbook of pulmonary diseases. All recognized diseases of the lungs are discussed and illustrated with extensive, high-quality color images. Every chapter includes clear, practical and concise diagnostic features, including immunohistochemistry, molecular tests, and differential diagnoses, while rare entities are illustrated and discussed in detail.
This thoroughly reworked 6th edition includes new classification schemes and the latest understanding of the pathophysiology and molecular aspects of a wide range of diseases. Non-neoplastic diseases are presented according to genetics, epidemiology, radiographic findings, pathology, clinical manifestations, laboratory findings, cytology, pathogenesis, prognosis, differential diagnosis, and natural history. Neoplasms are discussed according to cell or origin with sections devoted to genetics, molecular findings, and clinicopathologic correlations. Edited and written by leading experts in the field, this is an essential resource for practicing and trainee pathologists.
