A Comprehensive and Illustrated Guide to the Interpretation of Skin Lesions via Cytological Examination
Author: Francesco Albanese
This book discusses canine and feline skin cytology and the importance of this diagnostic tool in interpreting skin lesions. With more than 600 clinical and cytological color pictures, it explains the cytological patterns observed in all cutaneous inflammatory and neoplastic lesions in cats and dogs, as well as cutaneous metastasis of non-primary skin neoplasms. The first part of the book describes cell morphology and cytological patterns, providing an overview of the normal structure of the skin. In the second chapter, readers learn how to choose the best techniques for different types of lesions. Further chapters present the cytological findings in the main inflammatory and neoplastic skin diseases. By focusing on the macroscopic aspects of the lesions from which the cells are collected, it helps readers to interpret cytological specimens. The final chapter explores the cytology of cutaneous metastasis from internal organs or accessory glands. This book offers veterinary students and practitioners alike an essential diagnostic tool.
"This is a ‘go-to’ reference text for a serious cytologist. " Reviewed by: Kathleen Tennant on behalf of Veterinary Record, November 2015 Comprehensive coverage of all body systems and body fluids — and the pathological changes associated with various infectious agents — emphasizes areas in which the application of cytology has the greatest diagnostic value. Exceptional-quality, full-color photomicrographs show both normal and abnormal tissue and also include detailed legends. Discussions of clinical, differential, and cytological diagnosis accompany the illustrations of lesions and conditions in each chapter. Helpful hints for improving specimen quality are provided in discussions of common errors and problems encountered in the preparation of cytological specimens. Coverage of histology in organ system chapters demonstrates the histological or histopathologic corollary of cytologic findings. Clear, concise descriptions include sampling techniques, slide preparation and examination, and guidelines for interpretation, leading to accurate in-house and commercial laboratory diagnosis. Easy-to-use, well-organized format includes many tables, algorithms, boxes, and Key Point callouts for at-a-glance reference. NEW examples and identifiers and a new discussion on artifacts address the latest developments in canine and feline cytology. NEW! Dozens of new images include photomicrographs of blood and bone marrow cytology. NEW! All-new appendix summarizes clinically relevant information on artifacts, special tests, specific characteristics, and much more.

A powerful tool that can be employed in a wide variety of disease processes, cytology in small animals has gained increased recognition and clinical application. Small Animal Cytologic Diagnosis presents clinically applicable information about the use of cytology and indicates when advanced diagnostic testing can be beneficial to diagnose underlying disease processes. The book discusses the pathophysiology of inflammation, cancer biology and comparisons to histology to help readers fully comprehend the cytologic changes that can occur with inflammation and neoplasia. Also covered are some of the limitations and advantages of cytology compared to histopathology. The book includes tissue-specific chapters focusing on diseases of a particular area, always in comparison to normal tissue. Each of these chapters concludes with various cases that include information on signalment, history, pertinent laboratory data, specimen images, final outcome and the underlying pathology causing the cytologic lesions, when possible. With more than 1300 superb illustrations, this comprehensive resource provides ample practical information for students as well as practicing veterinarians.
