We thank our Springer editors for agreeing to publish this book in a non-standard format to help achieve this goal.
Contents The focus is not organ-based morphologic criteria for which there are many excellent quick-summary resources, but rather the focus is everything else that helps a pathologist make a diagnosis and pass the boards with emphasis on the vast and fast-growing fields of immunohistochemistry IHC and molecular markers.
The book starts with unique introductory primers at-a-glance 1-page summaries with diagrams on the main types of marker applications and high-yield facts such as peculiar principles of cytokeratin designation. We highlighted the rules and biologi-cal principles behind various immunostains and special stains to help residents reason through a problem rather than having to resort to memorized panels.
The other part of the IHC section contains a large compilation of general and organ-based applica-tions of IHC with numerous immunopanels. This includes the classics such as lung adenocarcinoma versus mesothelioma and more recent applications such as the work-up for mismatch repair proteins.
Other sections of the book contain various quick references that are often needed at the microscope but require frequent re-minders.
This includes a compilation of grading systems, common prognostic systems, and other criteria that are difficult to keep committed to memory such as size cut-points for various micro-entities like thyroid papillary microcarcinoma.
Also included are summaries for tumor syndromes with a particularly practical slide-to-syndrome summary where we highlighted which diagnoses or features should trigger consideration of a syndrome. Another high-yield section that is not usually covered in most pathology books is a compilation of quick clinical references geared for pathologists.
This section contains resources that help pathologists interpret clinical information that may be highly informative in the differential diagnosis of tumors, including a primer on metastasis what metastatic patterns are classic vs.
We also included a brief summary of targeted therapies for which pathologists may be asked to perform predictive marker testing. Even though the focus of the book is not organ-based morphologic criteria, we included several sections with differentials that cut across all organs.
For example, this section includes at-a-glance differentials for small round blue cell tumors, and classic differentials for certain morphologic features such as which tumors are classically associated with granulomas or have stag-horn vessels.
We also included an illustrated guide to microorganisms.
Finally, we compiled an illustrated glossary of histo-pathologic descriptors with illustrations of common objects these terms are said to resemble such as storiform or palisaded, and what Orphan Annies eyes actually look like! Keep this by your side as you begin to tackle the large pathology books! We are also very excited to include a handy guide for pathology web resources by Terina Chen and a user-friendly CPT coding summary by Diana Molavi.
Sources We used a variety of sources, including standard books and mountains of primary literature. However, most importantly our world view of pathology this early in our careers comes primarily from our outstanding teachers at The Johns Hopkins Hos-pital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

From them we learned the approaches and principles that come only after years of experience but cannot be learned by reading books and papers. We were fortunate to learn pathology from these bril- viii Preface liant diagnosticians and generous educators, who shared their knowledge with us through sign outs, lectures and weekly un-knowns during our residency at Johns Hopkins.
We therefore can only take credit for organizing and presenting this stream of knowledge in a format easily accessible to a newcomer to pathology, and we give all credit for the many useful pearls and principles in this book to our teachers.
On the other hand, we take full responsibility for any inaccuracies that may have inad-vertently escaped our attention.
In conclusion It is our hope that this book will be your best friend both at the microscope and in the late night hours of studying for the boards. Because the type of information covered in this book is rapidly evolving, please be sure to check the most current sources.
Natasha Rekhtman and Justin Bishop How this book came about part 1 I started working on this book in my second year of residency at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, although at that time I did not yet know that this was what I was doing. Like many pathologists, I am a very visual learner, and I firmly believe that a good table or diagram is worth many pages of text.
Therefore I was desperately looking for resources that succinctly summarized the mountains of information I was trying to absorb, particularly in a format that was tabular or diagrammatic and was amenable to quick learning of the essentials. While there were many great resources for histologic criteria, what I felt was missing were quick references for the new and fast growing fields of immunostains and molecular markers, as well as other types of material frequently needed in pathologists daily work but not available in a single source.
I therefore started compiling these summa-ries and diagrams for my own use, and later started sharing them with my co-residents. After getting feedback that others were findings these summaries useful, and after I realized that creating them was an incredible motivator to learn and digest the information, I put together a small handbook which was generously printed by the Department of Pathology at Johns Hopkins as a Resident Manual in and Now in collaboration with Justin Bishop as my coeditor and main coauthor and with contributions from many former and current Hopkins residents and fellows and my current colleagues at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, this book has morphed into what it is today.
Justin joined forces with me in the last two years, and I could not have dreamt of a more dedicated and talented collaborator, who made it possible to get this project completed. Natasha Rekhtman How this book came about part 2 My first interaction with this book universally known as the Green Book at Hopkins was in You can find everything you want and download books for free, without charge.
