Handbook of Pediatric Autopsy Pathology
A comprehensive reference guide to the successful performance of pediatric autopsies and to the optimal recognition and interpretation of their pathologic findings. The authors cover such major developmental disorders as hydrops, chromosomal defects, and congenital abnormalities, metabolic disorders, and review the major organ systems. Additional chapters address sudden infant death, cytogenetics, the medical and forensic autopsy, special procedures, cultures and infection control, and biological hazards at the autopsy. Numerous standard reference tables, copious illustrations and drawings, and an appendix at the end of each chapter provide a wealth of practical information and bibliographic citations.
