A Review of A Color Atlas of Neuropathology
Neuropathology has long been an intimidating subdivision of anatomic pathology. Eponymous diseases (diagnosed by esoteric stains) seem to comprise an uncomfortable segment of the subspecialty, and yet a significant percentage of a forensic pathologist's cases involve neuropathologic conditions. C. S. Treip has added another volume to the Color Atlas series, and the result is a compact but surprisingly useful handbook. It makes a welcome complement to Fascicle 6 of the Tumor Pathology Series by covering, in addition to neoplasia, infectious and inflammatory disease, vascular disease, degenerative and demyelinating diseases, metabolic disorders, nutritional deficiencies, congenital malformations, and perinatal disorders. Also included is a section on traumatic lesions that is, unfortunately, very brief.
