Until now, there has been no text entirely devoted to proliferative lesions that can mimic neoplasms. Drs Wick, Humphrey, and Ritter have assembled a comprehensive collection in 600 text pages and 15 chapters with the help of four of their colleagues from the Lauren V. Ackerman Laboratory of Surgical Pathology at Washington University, St Louis, Mo, and 17 other authors. The book follows the welcome trend of having all its tissue illustrations in color. Most of the figures are small, approximately 3 × 2 inches, but there are well over 800, and many have three or four parts. Some of the lowest power photographs tend to be out of focus, a problem when using standard photomicrographic apparatus at this level of magnification.
