Maintaining the first edition’s unique parallel to the strategy used by pathologists and pulmonologists to arrive at a patient’s diagnosis in daily practice, Diagnostic Pulmonary Pathology starts with the patient and their biopsy findings, directing the pathologist or clinician to the proper diagnosis. With many advances in pulmonary pathology, radiology, and pulmonary medicine, this new edition provides thorough updates in:
