Book Description

Surgical Pathology of the Head and Neck, Third Edition is a complete stand-alone reference covering all aspects of head and neck pathology. Providing an interdisciplinary approach to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of head and neck diseases, this source promotes clear communication between pathologists and surgeons. This is the reference of choice for a variety of clinicians, including: oral and general pathologists; oral and maxillofacial, plastic, reconstructive, head and neck, orthopedic, and general surgeons; otolaryngologists; radiologists; and dentists.

Topics covered include:

  • incidence
  • etiology
  • clinical presentation
  • pathology
  • differential diagnosis
  • prognosis for each disorder

With an improved format and design as well as an easy-to-use, quick reference index, the updated and expanded Third Edition contains more than 1,400 images—200 more full-color images than in previous editions—for optimal illustrations of head and neck lesions.
