This edition stresses not just the diagnostic cytological features of the various conditions encountered, but also the diagnostic pitfalls and the grey areas between so as to enable the reader to give more evidence-based reports. In recognition of their rapid expansion, there are new chapters on recent technological developments and on the cytodiagnosis of childhood tumours. A special section on the importance of multidisciplinary team meetings that include the cytopathologist as a core member of the team has also been included at the end of each chapter. As active members of this team, cytopathologists can define their role in the management pathway and thus bring the patient and the microscope together as never before.

''This is an enjoyable and instructive textbook with many representative color pictures of the best quality. The book covers many fields and aspects of diagnostic cytolopathology with 16 sections and 34 chapters with total 930 pages I believe this is one of the most extensively- and intensively-covering monographs on cytopathology. Each chapter is composed of introduction, cytologic techniques, ancillary techniques, normal components, tumors, and role of cytology in patient management. The description is concise and informative. Illustrations, tables and boxes are of excellent quality and self explanatory. '' Winifred Gray& Gabrijela Kicjan
"As this monograph covers broad spectrum of diagnostic cytopathology with many very good illustrations, it is recommended for not only the experienced cytopatholgists or cytotechnologists, but the trainees in this very exciting fields of medical practice."
