This book addresses general considerations, such as the normal bone, the incidence of bone tumors, classification and staging of tumors, and the special techniques used to detect them. In 20 subsequent chapters, specific types of bone tumors and tumor-like conditions are discussed in detail. Each of these chapters follows an identical organization, covering incidence, pathogenesis, clinical findings, radiographic findings, microscopic findings, special pathology techniques (such as molecular pathology and immunohistochemistry), differential diagnosis, treatment considerations, and prognosis. Dorfman concludes with personal comments on the pitfalls and areas of particular difficulty in diagnosing a given type of tumor.From the Publisher:
