Orthopedic Pathology

JAMA. 2009;301(6):672-677. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.65

This well-organized text on orthopedic pathology discusses topics ranging from metabolic bone disease to bone tumors. The text is comprehensive in that it has dedicated chapters for most orthopedic conditions, tumorous and nontumorous. While some existing orthopedic pathology texts focus primarily on musculoskeletal tumors, this text dedicates appropriate attention to important topics such as basic bone biology, metabolic bone diseases, orthopedic infections, and implant pathology. Although the text seems directed toward residents-in-training in orthopedics, pathology, and radiology, it can be a useful and worthwhile reference for practicing physicians in these respective fields. The organization allows for easy reference of any particular topic of interest.
