This second in a series of monographs (Histologic Diagnosis of Neoplastic Diseases - a Method by Pattern Analysis) focuses upon making specific diagnosis based upon repeatable, reliable and accurate criteria and utilizes a method of pattern analysis with particular emphasis on assessment of silhouettes for diagnosis of neoplasms with follicular differentiation. The proliferations are illustrated richly so that they are easily recognizable, not only when the present themselves conventionally, but when they become disguised. Every proliferation pictured histopathologically in this book is an overview of the morphologic features of every proliferation, enabling utilization of diagnosis by pattern analysis. The drawings for silhouettes of entire proliferations are important didactic adjuncts to the photomicrographs.
