    Greenfield's Neuropathology, the world’s leading neuropathology reference, provides a comprehensive account of the pathological findings in neurological disease, their biological basis, and their clinical manifestations.

    The book’s detailed advice on pathological assessment and interpretation is based on clear descriptions of molecular and cellular processes and reactions that are relevant to the development of the nervous system, as well as its normal and abnormal functioning. The information is presented in an accessible way to readers working within a range of disciplines in the clinical neurosciences, and neuropathological findings are placed within the context of a broader diagnostic process.

    New for the Ninth Edition:

    • Features online and downloadable digital formats with rapid search functions, annotation and bookmarking facilities, image collections, and live reference links
    • Contains many color illustrations and high-quality clinical photographs to help with interpretation and understanding
    • Includes more than 1000 new photographs and drawings
    • Incorporates new design elements, such as alternate colour coding of chapters for easier navigation

    Known for its thorough yet practical approach, Greenfield's continues to provide trusted information to all neuropathologists and those in related specialties, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, general pathologists, neuroradiologists, and clinical neuroscientists.

    "It is the leading reference in neuropathology and deserves high praise. Greenfield’s is a remarkable text which retains a clear, comprehensive and precise style. The illustrations are exceptional… This is a tried and tested reference, a great leader in its field. Scientists, clinicians, researchers, students who wish to learn more about neurological disease should look no further than Greenfield’s Neuropathology Ninth Edition."
    —(Highly Commended, Pathology, BMA Medical Book Awards 2016)

    "…this authoritative edition is … essential for our time."
    The Journal of Neuropathology & Experimental Neurology

    "The descriptions are lucid and straightforward. Illustrations are important in any pathology book, and here they are superb, with high-quality photographs of both gross and microscopic pathology. Every neuropathologist needs to have Greenfield's Neuropathology at hand for constant reference … [it] remains an essential resource."
    —Sherry Krawitz, MD, PhD, University of Manitoba College of Medicine in Doody’s Book Review Service

    Praise for the Eighth Edition:

    "... a true monument of neuropathology that cannot be compared to anything existing in the field"
    European Journal of Neurology

    "There is no doubt that the new Greenfield is magnificent: the radical changes introduced over the two editions have both restored the book's pre-eminence in the field and made it a truly international enterprise ..."

    "... a magnificent piece of work, an absolute gem, and unreservedly recommended"
    Clinical Neurology & Neurosurgery

    "In summary, there is no doubt the new edition builds well on the outstanding strength of the previous editions. It will maintain its place as a key textbook of neuropathology. This book should be on the shelves of all diagnostic histopathology departments and clinical and experimental neuropathologists."
    The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists
