"This book, one of the latest additions to the Foundations in Diagnostic Pathology series, provides a comprehensive account of the rich variety of diseases that affect the head and neck region. The contributing authors are well-known practicing histopathologists who are able to convey their wealth of practical experience throughout the pages of this book.
The chapters are organised into non-neoplastic, benign and malignant diseases affecting the principle anatomical sites of the head and neck. The book has a remarkably clear layout and is superbly illustrated. The textual content is aimed at both trainee and qualified histopathologists and provides sufficient detail to help in the diagnosis of most of the conditions encountered in routine practice.
Trainees will appreciate, as aides to revision, the short 'fact sheets' that list the key clinical and pathological features of each condition and trainers may find these useful as reminders of the key features to mention when teaching.
Overall, the book is a pleasure to read and to use in routine diagnostic work. It will be a useful addition to the shelves of all departmental reporting rooms and consultants' offices."
