Pulmonary Pathology Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Color Atlas and Text of Pulmonary Pathology
Second edition
by Philip T. Cagle

Thoroughly updated for its Second edition, this comprehensive, profusely illustrated text/atlas covers the full range of pulmonary pathology, including common, rare and newly described diseases, both neoplastic and non-neoplastic.

The book presents a multimodality approach to diagnosis, integrating cytologic, radiologic, surgical, and clinical pathologic features of each disease. By combining carefully chosen color illustrations with lists of distinguishing features of each entity, this text/atlas provides a quick path to accurate diagnosis.

Color Atlas and Text of Pulmonary Pathology, 2nd edition features updated sections on pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary hemorrhage, lung transplantation, and pediatric pulmonary pathology, including new classification and grading systems. Throughout the book, new entities and new images have been added.
