The second edition retains the informal and conversational voice, the brevity, and the goals of the first edition, but with new chapters, updated material, and expanded sections. The book is directed at the junior pathology resident, and goes first through some very basic introductory material, then progresses through each organ system. Within each chapter there is a brief review of salient normal histology, a discussion of typical specimen types, a strategic approach to the specimen with a list of what to look for, and a discussion of how the multitude of different diagnoses relate to each other. The level of detail is necessarily scant, but the aim is not to provide a comprehensive text or atlas. Instead the goals are twofold: 1) to provide a chapter that can be read in 20 minutes or less, providing the resident with a logical and informed approach to the biopsy/resection, and 2) to sketch out the roadmap of the organ system, touching on the less common entities and how they fit into the bigger picture. The second edition of The Practice of Surgical Pathology lays the foundation of practical pathology for the intern, building a scaffold on which to hang the details of more advanced books and lectures. Selected highlights of the second edition include, brand new material covering spleen and thymus, as well as new additions to the "Ditzels" chapter; a new chapter on the logistics of finding a private practice job in pathology; revised primer on immunostains, reflecting new first-line markers in the classification and identification of tumors; and significantly expanded chapters on soft tissue and bone tumors, with new color figures and radiologic-pathologic correlations.
