Summary note
  • The clinical interpretation of bone and bone marrow biopsies contributes valuable information to the diagnostic puzzle in patients under investigation in a wide range of contexts from hematology and internal medicine, to orthopedics, rheumatology and oncology.
  • Furthermore, in recent years immunohistology has been bridging the gap between diagnostic histopathology and medical genetics, while elucidation of the signal 'circuitry' of cell cycles is leading to radically different methods of controlling autonomous neoplastic cell multiplication and growth. The authors of this comprehensive and practical book ably demonstrate the scope and importance of biopsy interpretation in their field of expertise.
