OverviewSternberg's Diagnostic Surgical Pathology is a flagship book in pathology. This classic 2-volume reference presents advanced diagnostic techniques and the latest information on all currently known diseases. The book emphasizes the practical differential diagnosis of the surgical specimen while keeping to a minimum discussion of the natural history of the disease, treatment and autopsy findings. Contributors are asked to provide their expert advice on the diagnostic evaluation of every type of specimen from every anatomic site. This approach distinguishes it and provides a style of a personal consultation.
