Read the reviews


‘FNA Cytology of Ophthalmic Tumors therefore provides a much needed contribution to the discipline of ophthalmic pathology. The editors of the work, Dr. Charles Biscotti and Dr. Arun Singh, have done a wonderful job of addressing these challenges by providing us with ten chapters representing the combined experience of fourteen pathologists from five countries. There is simply no other work on this subject of such scope and quality. A strength of the book is its inclusion of practical issues related to specimen handling, helpful illustrations, attention to clinical correlation, and summary if relevant molecular approaches to the analysis of ocular tumors.’

‘Spread over ten chapters, this well-illustrated book - which is the volume 21 of the series, Monographs in Clinical Cytology – aims to give an overview on the specific field of ophthalmic cytology including a range of uveal, retinal and orbital tumours, while emphasizing the importance of close integration between ophthalmic cytology and clinical ophthalmology. The text is concise and easy to follow, and the text format tends to be consistent across the chapters, making this book ideal for quick consultation. Some chapters end with a 'Conclusion' paragraph, in which very useful 'take-home messages' are summarized.’

«…Für den praktizierenden Optometristen besonders interessant sind die Kapitel 3, 4, und 5, welche sich den uvealen Metastasen, uvealen Lymphomen sowie den diagnostischen Merkmalen uvealer Melanome widmet. In diesem Zusammenhang äusserst informativ fand der Rezensent den Gesamtkomplex uvealer Metastasen…
…Alle Beiträge des Buches sind entsprechend der Vorgaben für wissenschaftliche Publikationen gleich strukturiert, was die Lesbarkeit des jeweiligen Kapitels vereinfacht.
Der wissenschaftlich interessierte Leser findet in allen Beiträgen darüber hinaus hochaktuelle Literaturhinwiese. Die Qualität der farbigen Abbildungen ist ausgezeichnet.
Zusammenfassend handelt es sich bei dem rezensierten Buch um ein hoch interessantes Werk über den Bereich der ophthalmischen Zytologie.
Das Buch ist für den praktizierenden Kollegen sicherlich nicht immer einfach zu lesen, behandelt aber den Komplex der ‹FNA Zytologie ophthalmischer Tumore› in einer Tiefe, welche für jeden Primary Eye Care Practitioner zum besseren Verständnis und Diagnose okulärer Tumore von grossem Nutzen sein kann…»

A comprehensive and well-illustrated monograph on rare tumors
This comprehensive and well-illustrated volume in the outstanding Monographs in Clinical Cytology series examines the spectrum of ophthalmic cytology including uveal, retinal, and orbital tumors.
It includes historical perspectives, current indications, surgical techniques, and practical aspects of the cytological preparation of ophthalmic fine needle aspiration samples. The importance of a close collaboration between cytologists and ophthalmologists in the field of ophthalmic tumors is emphasized. The monograph presents high-quality illustrations accompanied by very informative legends that reveal the details of the clinical-cytological correlation evident in many of the cases managed by the authors. It presents a complete spectrum of ophthalmic tumors covering uveal melanoma, uveal metastasis, intraocular lymphoma, and orbital tumors. Recent innovations in the instrumentation and use of digital cytology in fine needle aspiration biopsy are also reviewed.
This publication is an excellent reference text on rare tumors. It is highly recommended reading for ophthalmic pathologists, cytologists, and oncologists.
