Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis- clinical, radiologic, and pathologic--and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the genitourinary system. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of genitourinary lesions tumors that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.

More than 500 color images and this analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of entities described are uncommon Neoplastic Mimics in Genitourinary emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees genitourinary cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.

Neoplastic Mimics in Genitourinary Pathology features:

  • Over 500 high-quality images showing the full range of neoplastic mimics in the genitourinary tract
  • Concise, specific text descriptions make the book easy to use as a visual reference
  • Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens
