    Product Description:

    As a professional working in the frontlines of tissue diagnosis and in
    everyday practice, you need a reference that gives you practical
    information in an easy-to-use format. Containing over 300 photographs,
    micrographs, and line drawings, including over 60 color illustrations,
    Color Atlas of Nerve Biopsy Pathology supplies a clear picture of
    commonly used techniques for nerve biopsies. You get new diagnostic
    techniques and clinicopathological correlations all in a framework
    designed for quick reference and easy learning. Providing all the
    practical information you need from A to Z, Color Atlas of Nerve Biopsy
    Pathology describes how to: · perform a nerve biopsy · handle specimens
    · process the nerve by frozen sections, by paraffin sections, and by
    semi-thin sections The book delineates the general pathological
    features of peripheral nerve disorders and the diagnostic capability
    and limitations of the nerve biopsy. It details the typical
    pathological features of each disease by presenting color photographs
    and example cases that provide a brief clinical history and pertinent
    electrophysiological and other laboratory data. The exhaustively
    illustrated color format provides you with immediate information in
    reaching a definitive diagnosis. Unlike other books on this subject,
    this one contains frozen section materials, case histories, teased
    nerve illustrations, and newly described neuropathies. The author
    brings twenty-five years of experience in the lab and teaching to the
    development of this atlas. In the lab or in the classroom, on the front
    lines of tissue diagnosis, Color Atlas of Nerve Biopsy Pathology
    provides you with the information you need clearly, concisely, and

    Summary: Excellent review of nerve pathology.
    Rating: 5

    As a pathology resident and neuropathology fellow I find this book to
    be extremely helpful. It is one of the very few and more recent
    published books available in this area with numerous high-quality
    pictures and sufficient information about a broad variety of nerve
    diseases. The text is well written, clear and concise, and more
    importantly, easy to read. The book is very useful for the pathologist
    trying to introduce the techniques of sural nerve biopsy in the
    laboratory. It goes over the biopsy procedure, histological processing,
    staining fresh-frozen and paraffin sections, processing the nerve for
    semithin and electron microscopy sections. It also talks about the
    nerve fiber teasing procedure. It is an excellent resource for concise
    summaries of the clinicopathological correlation hallmarks including
    electrophysiological findings of a wide variety of conditions explained
    based on several cases for each chapter, making this book a good
    resource for neurology residents and fellows. In addition, there are a
    number of handy summary tables in each section. The overall layout of
    the book is clear and visually appealing. I strongly recommend this
    book for those seeking knowledge in nerve pathology and clinical

    Summary: Interesting and Educational!
    Rating: 5

    I enjoyed "reading" and "studying" Dr. Oh's book, "Color Atlas of Nerve
    Biopsy Pathology" very much. This book provides very useful information
    to every neurophysiologist and neuropathologist for daily practice. In
    fact, I learned practical tips on obtaining nerve specimens and nerve
    fiber teasing, and on interpretation of nerve biopsy from this book.
    Compared with other books on nerve biopsy, this book provides rich
    information with many clinically oriented example-cases on various
    neuropathies, such as vasculitic neuropathy, demyelinating neuropathy,
    toxic neuropathy etc. We can first study case presentation of a brief
    clinical history and electrophysiological findings, followed by case
    analysis, nerve biopsy, finial diagnosis and author's comments. During
    the reading, from clinical presentation to final diagnosis, I enjoyed
    "learning" and "experiencing" the process of diagnosis with Dr. Oh.
    Many tips on neuropathy written in the book should be worthwhile to
    every neurologist for everyday practice.
    I strongly recommend "reading", "studying" and "purchasing" this book.

    Summary: Unique!

    Dr. Oh's book does provide basic concepts that every pathologist and
    neurologist should know about nerve biopsy. In fact, this is the only
    color atlas book available with up-to-date informations regarding nerve
    biopsy, nerve teasing and semithin sections. It provides comprehensive
    understanding of the various topics from the nerve biopsy procedure to
    the interpretation.
    There is also a clinico-pathological correlation of cases commonly
    encountered in the clinical practice, which is rarely observed in other
    books. Language is easy to read. Dr. Oh, with his wide experience, was
    able to collect hundreds of pictures with varying examples from normal
    biopsies to the most interesting diseases.
    Among the various books which attempted to address the same issues, I
    found Dr Oh's book most informative and clinically oriented. I enjoyed
    reading it and learned many caveats on the nerve pathology. I strongly
    recommend it.

    Summary: nerve pathology
    Rating: 1

    This book is an attempt to provide an overview of peripheral neve
    pathology using color light microscopy photomicrographs of frozen,
    paraffin, and, to a very limited degree, semithin and teased nerve
    fiber preparations. I will not attempt to comment on the anecdotal
    clinical cases nor on the electrodiagnostic data provided. From a
    pathology standpoint, this book by Dr. Oh (not editor) falls far short
    of its goal. Ignoring the troubling misspellings, inadequately
    referenced and often controversial statements, figure and legend
    miscorrelations, and illustrations of tissues other than nerve there
    are numerous errors in the pathology. Space precludes a thorough
    review. A most troubling recommendation is that the freshly biopsied
    nerve is allowed to autolyze for 15 minutes, apparently at room
    temperature, "for reducing contraction artifact". Lacking contractile
    elements, nerves do not contract. They are very susceptable to
    autolysis, crush artifact, and fixation artifact such as shrinkage from
    hypertonic fixative. The illustrations contain, apparently nwittingly,
    many of these artifacts partly resulting from the recommended
    techniques. The preferred preparation for analysis, frozen sections,
    are cut at 10 microns. Since most of the fine endoneurial structures of
    interest are considerably smaller than 10 microns, much of the finer
    details are difficult to analyze at this thickness. This is one reason
    why 1 micron plastic sections are the standard preparations,
    supplimented with well fixed 3 micron paraffin sections to facilitate
    study of elements less obvious in plastic. There are many errors in
    histological identification and a number of photographs are out of
    focus. The index is very incomplete. I found it very unpleasant to
    review this book, and cannot recommend it.
