Fields Virology is the authoritative reference book for virology, providing definitive coverage of all aspects of virology, including thorough coverage of virus biology as well as replication and medical aspects of specific virus families. With the regular outbreaks of influenza, noroviruses as well as other emerging and re-emerging viruses it is essential to have the most up-to-date information available.
With this Sixth Edition, all chapters have been completely updated, an important new emphasis has been placed on virus discovery and emerging viruses. Viruses associated with cancer, including the new human polyomaviruses, are highlighted in this Sixth Edition and new chapters have been added on circoviruses and mimiviruses.
While the main focus of this edition continues to be on viruses, information on prions and the infectious spongiform encephalopathies are also included.

Keith Stone, MD, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology, this atlas is a must-have resource for both clinicians and pathologists focused on women’s health.
Organized by dermatologic findings, Atlas of Vulvar Disease presents a complete overview of diseases within each broader topic area. Each disorder includes a definition, general features, clinical presentation, microscopic features, differential diagnosis, clinical behavior and treatment, and progressive therapeutic options, to guide the diagnosis and treatment of various vulvar diseases.
Hundreds of full-color clinical photographs and relevant histopathologic photographs illustrate the clinical appearance and histopathologic characteristics of the full spectrum of vulvar diseases.
Tables on sexually transmitted diseases, vesicobullous disease, and the classification of vulvar diseases are included to assist in differential diagnosis.
Clinical pathological correlations aid in the diagnosis and interpretation of laboratory findings.
Two indexes facilitate quick look up a disease entity or a clinical presentation.
A free companion web site features the full-text as well as an extensive image bank of clinical and histopathologic photographs from the book.
This practical volume in the Biopsy Interpretation Series is your guide to effectively diagnosing surgical pathology specimens from the kidney and adrenal glands, with an emphasis on core needle biopsies. Presented in a reader-friendly format, it features abundant photomicrographs of actual biopsy samples as well as correlative photos of surgical specimens and ancillary immunohistochemical studies. Coverage of each organ includes an introduction to biopsy techniques and an overview of normal histology. Positive diagnoses for renal lesions are described by a pattern approach and tumor type, and adrenal lesions are grouped by primary and metastatic tumors, reflecting the main diagnostic considerations. Renal and adrenal cytology specimens and endoscopic renal pelvic biopsies and are also described.
