Surgical pathologistsplay a central role in patient surveillanceand treatment by surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists. Although salivary gland tumors are uncommon overall, their histopathologic diversity and challenge commandthe attention of practicing surgicalpathologists. Atlas of Salivary Gland Pathology focuses on the diagnosticapproach to salivary gland neoplasia-one of themore challenging fields within surgical pathology-emphasizing the need tounderstand downstream implications with respect to patientsurveillance and treatment. The presence of formidable histologic mimicry in salivary gland neoplasia is well-documentedin the pathology literature and has also been observedin the consultation practice of thevolume editor. This textbook is designedwith the needs of practicingsurgical pathologists and pathologists-in-training in mind, providing a comprehensive overview of both commonand rare salivary gland neoplasms. The primary educational objectives for readers include the following: 1) distinguish benign from low-grade malignant salivary gland neoplasms, 2) effectively use histochemical, immunohistochemical, and cytogenetic studies in challenging cases, 3) understand which diagnoses merit additional surgery and/oradjuvant therapy (radiation, chemotherapy), and 4) enhance pathologist-to-clinician communication in the setting ofsalivary gland disease.
