Physicians should have the knowledge derived from morphological findings to identify the likelihood of a cancer patient having an additional underlying familial syndrome- and to decide if that patient should undergo molecular genetic evaluation. This volume is specifically designed to help pathologists, oncologists, and other physicians who diagnose and treat cancer to recognize syndromes and syndrome- associated neoplasms and advise patients and their families on the possibility of a familial syndrome and their risk of developing other tumors. Diagnostic Pathology: Familial Cancer Syndromes, second edition, is an easy-to-use, one-stop reference for information on hereditary cancer syndromes, including differential diagnosis and management, that offers a templated, highly formatted design; concise, bulleted text; and superior color images throughout.
