Rare Tumors of the Thyroid Gland. Diagnosis and WHO classification

 

- Provides detailed descriptions and documentation of almost all the rare tumours and tumor-like lesions of the thyroid.
- Broadens our current understanding of thyroid oncology through the study of rare lesions in the context of common thyroid tumours.
- Offers an in-depth review of the histogenesis of most of the rare lesions of the thyroid, which is needed for diagnosis and therapy.

This book documents the most important clinicopathological features of rare thyroid tumours with an emphasis (and ample documentation) on their histological and immunohistochemical aspects. Whenever necessary, namely for differential diagnosis and/or therapy purposes, molecular data are also highlighted. In order to understand the histogenesis of rare lesions and to be able to make a differential diagnosis, the editors use the WHO book for endocrine tumours (the 2017 WHO book) as a framework for classifying thyroid tumours. In addition to characterizing the main histotypes of thyroid tumours, this book also provides detailed information on how to approach the diagnosis of tumours according to the major morphological/ immunohistochemical characteristics, the predominant morphology and whether or not they are hereditary. Besides the general index, a separate index of the 64 entities (and variants) documented by 115 plates with 425 photographs. This book is a valuable learning tool for those involved in the differential diagnosis of thyroid lesions.

 

In the words of Dr. Juan Rosai: …The present monograph by José Manuel Cameselle-Teijeiro and coworkers can be viewed as complementary to the fourth edition of the WHO “blue book” on thyroid tumors, in the sense of expanding considerably on all those aspects of thyroid tumor pathology. In a way, it can be seen as a collection of extremely useful additions that for theoretical and practical reasons could not be dealt with enough detail into the “mother” publication, i.e., the WHO series on the subject.
