FIRST PARAGRAPH OF REVIEW: A fan of the Biopsy Interpretation series, I was pleased to review a new title, although without reviewing the first edition. As advertised, ‘recent advances in our understanding of aerodigestive tract pathology,’ are presented in a userfriendly manner, incorporating selected and targeted use of ancillary techniques to help reach a diagnosis, although the reader is reminded to focus on the standard hematoxylin and eosin-stained material first and foremost. In fact, the entire chapter on hematopathology only has a single immunohistochemistry image, which is normally a field run amok by mmunohistochemistry stains. Always forward thinking, and utilizing all resources available to reach a diagnosis, the book itself will be as helpful as any of the supporting ancillary studies.
