A user-friendly design color-codes patterns to specific entities, and key points are summarized in tables, charts, and graphs so you can quickly and easily find what you are looking for.

Part of the in-depth and practical Pattern Recognition series, Practical Pulmonary Pathology, 3rd Edition, helps you accurately identify and interpret neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the lungs by using a pattern-based approach. Leading diagnosticians in pulmonary pathology guide you from a histological pattern, through the appropriate work-up, around the pitfalls, and to the best diagnosis. Superb, full-color illustrations capture key pathological patterns for a full range of common and rare conditions, and a "visual index" at the beginning of the book directs you to the exact location of in-depth diagnostic guidance.

Published Reviews

"This is a superb book for all practicing pathologists, general or specialized. Although it covers a wide breadth of pulmonary pathological diagnoses, the text and images, including pictures and tables, are equally balanced. This is a first-class resource for both residents and fellows during previewing and is a worthwhile book for attending pathologists to use during sign-out."

-Lauren Stanoszek, MD, PhD (University of Michigan Medical School) Doody's Review Score: 4 Stars!
