Extranodal Lymphomas is a practical, easy-to-use guide that helps you accurately diagnose even the most challenging cases. Dr. Judith Ferry and leaders in the field present their expertise to fill the need for a highly-illustrated, authoritative reference that keeps you up to date on histologic, immunophenotypic, genetic, and clinical features, along with risk factors and current nomenclature. This comprehensive resource also features access to the fully searchable text and a downloadable image library online at so you’ll have convenient access to everything you need for effective diagnostic decision making.


Access the fully searchable text online at, along with a downloadable image bank.
See specimens as they appear through the microscope with nearly 800 superb, full-color photographs, photomicrographs, and images taken at high power.
Apply current criteria for diagnosis with the terminology and criteria of the newest WHO Classification of Tumors of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues incorporated throughout the text.
Easily refer to key information through tables that highlight principle features of lymphomas in different anatomic sites and their differential diagnosis.
Effectively diagnose both extranodal and intranodal lymphomas using comprehensive coverage.
Quickly find pathologic criteria with chapters organized by anatomic site providing a comprehensive list of extranodal sites, including the central nervous system, the head and neck, heart, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, skin, bone, bone marrow, and more.

"Even though there are many highly rated hematopathology books on the market, there was a need for an authoritative reference book dedicated to extranodal lymphomas. This book is definitely a refreshing addition to the hematopathology literature. This book offers a systematic review, by anatomic location, of different lymphoma subtypes, both common and uncommon. Lymphomas in a certain anatomic location are further divided into primary and secondary ones. I find this approach to lymphomas to be innovative, interesting, and easy to follow, especially for surgical pathologists who deal with a wide spectrum of cases at different anatomic locations. The book follows the principles of WHO classification by describing the pertinent clinical, morphologic, immunophenotypic, and genetic features of each entity at a specific location. It also includes an extensive discussion of differential diagnosis, which I find especially useful." - Anamarija M Perry, MD(University of Cincinnati College of Medicine), excerpts from Doody’s review service, Rating - 4 Stars !
