Part of the highly regarded Diagnostic Pathology series, this updated volume by Drs. Dina R. Mody, Michael J. Thrall, and Savitri Krishnamurthy, is a visually stunning, easy-to-use reference covering all aspects of cytology, including gynecologic, non-gynecologic exfoliative, fine-needle aspiration, and imaging. An abundance of high-quality images make this an invaluable diagnostic aid for every practicing pathologist, resident, or fellow who works with ever-smaller tissue samples for diagnosis and molecular testing.

    • Essential knowledge in all areas of cytopathology, including clinical, radiologic, cytopathological features, immunohistochemical, and molecular correlates where applicable
  • Time-saving reference features include bulleted text, a variety of tables, key facts in each chapter, annotated images, pertinent references, and an extensive index
New To This Edition:

    • Thoroughly updated content throughout, incorporating significant changes in cytopathology classifications, reporting systems, and science
    • New coverage of the Bethesda 2014 reporting terminology for gynecologic cytology and updates on HPV testing and management guidelines; updates on the Milan System for Reporting of Salivary Gland Cytology with risk stratification; the Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology; and updates on the Bethesda 2017 reporting terminology for thyroid cytology
    • Coverage of state-of-the-art immunohistochemistry and molecular markers as applicable to the practice of cytology and anatomic pathology, as well as current information on lab operations, regulatory mandates, quality improvement, and risk reduction


  • Expert Consult™ eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
