In their mission to solve the puzzle of managing patients with genitourinary disease, the editors of Urinary System: Cytology, Histology, Cystoscopy, and Radiology present a multidisciplinary correlation of genitourinary cancer prevention and diagnosis aimed at pathologists, urologists, and oncologists.
Urinary System:Cytology, Histology, Cystoscopy, and Radiology presents visual and descriptive guidelines for interpreting samples.
Urinary System: Cytology, Histology, Cystoscopy, and Radiology begins with an overview of the urinary system and moves on to the techniques and tools for diagnosing illness.
This atlas-style book, enhanced with 400 color illustrations, provides surgical pathologists and cytopathologists with descriptive guidelines for the diagnostic hallmarks of genitourinary diseases.
A major feature of this atlas-style book, differentiating it from other genitourinary pathology resources, is the incorporation of cystourethroscopic/ureterorendoscopic features of urologic lesions contributed by urologists, along with radiologic features of renal mass lesions, and ancillary tests for the detection of urothelial carcinoma.

The field of genitourinary pathology is complex and often strikes a feeling of uneasiness in even the experienced pathologist. Arriving at an accurate diagnosis can be challenging and often requires integration of clinical information, cystoscopy findings, cytology, histology and, in some cases, molecular testing. Condensing this information into a single textbook is no easy task. Through contributions from urologists, radiologists, and pathologists, the authors have successfully packaged this material into an easy-to-read, user-friendly textbook. This is an atlas-style, hardback book with seven chapters and more than 300 high-quality, color illustrations with descriptive text. The first part of the book is dedicated to cystoscopic images of urologic lesions, urine cytology, and bladder biopsies. A unique feature is the incorporation of cystourethroscopic/ureterorendoscopic findings, an essential clinical component lacking in most genitourinary pathology textbooks. Next, imaging of upper urinary tract lesions and biopsy interpretation of renal mass lesions are discussed. Included in these chapters are very helpful summary tables of immunohistochemical markers used in the diagnosis of renal neoplasms, common genetic mutations in renal cell carcinomas, and common genomic mutations in pediatric renal malignancies. The book ends with a section on ancillary tests for the detection of urothelial carcinoma, with a specific focus on fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and the other promising molecular markers. The book is well organized and uses an easy to follow, bulleted format. Throughout the book, the authors give many practical “pearls” based on their own personal experiences, including how to avoid common pitfalls. We highly recommend this book to anyone looking to increase their knowledge in the area of genitourinary pathology, including pathology residents and fellows, practicing pathologists, radiologists, and urologists.
