About this Book

The human urinary bladder is subject to a unique and extraordinarily diverse array of congenital, inflammatory, metaplastic, and neoplastic abnormalities.  This book provides contemporary, comprehensive, and evidence-based practice information for pathologists, urologists, oncologists, and other medical professionals.

In Bladder Pathology, a full spectrum of pathologic conditions that afflict the bladder and urothelium are described and lavishly illustrated. With its emphasis on diagnostic criteria and differential diagnoses, this book is of particular value to practicing pathologists-assisting in the pathologist's recognition, understanding, and accurate interpretation of the light microscopic findings in bladder specimens.

Features and benefits of this new volume include:
• 1,741 high-quality, color illustrations and 112 tables to illustrate the wide range of pathologic and clinical features in the urinary tract
• An evidence-based approach to diagnosis and patient management for infectious, nonneoplastic, and
neoplastic conditions
• Recent advances in the molecular genetics of the urinary bladder with discussion of their current or
potential impact on diagnosis and personalized patient care
• With emphasis on the scientific validation of current diagnostic methods and their direct application in clinical practice, Bladder Pathology is a cutting-edge resource that not only offers comprehensive research and  clinical information for practicing surgical pathologists, urologists, oncologists, and their clinical colleagues, but also captures a genuine sense of excitement about recent advances in this vital, ever-evolving field.
