PHILADELPHIA, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information and point-of-care solutions for the healthcare industry and students of medicine, has introduced new editions of two definitive guides in pathology.  The company announced publication of print and eBook versions of Rosen's Breast Pathology, 4th Edition, the leading guide on the topic, as well as Lewin, Weinstein and Riddell's Gastrointestinal Pathology and Its Clinical Implications, 2nd Edition, a world renowned two-volume set devoted to GI pathology.  Popular with pathologists and pathology residents, both books are updated and on the cutting edge of new knowledge in this field.

Rosen's Breast Pathology, 4th Edition, has added three distinguished contributors to join founding author Dr. Paul P. Rosen to expand this classic text.  Syed Hoda, MD, Edi Brogi, MD, PhD, and Frederick Koerner, MD, have come from the top institutions to team up with Dr. Rosen to bring this text up-to-date for today's pathologists and pathology residents.

"I am very proud that Rosen's Breast Pathology is widely viewed as the 'gold standard' in the field of breast pathology," said Paul P. Rosen, MD, Lead Author, Rosen's Breast Pathology.  "In this new, 2014 edition, we sought to maintain the same tonality and focus as the original text but have added some new depth as a result of the adept contributions of my three esteemed colleagues."

"It is full of wisdom and in-depth insights," according to Fang Fan, MD, PhD, University of Kansas Medical Center, in a review of Rosen's Breast Pathology published in June 2014 for Doody Review Service™.  The review concluded, "There is no doubt that this is a must-have book for pathologists who sign out breast cases."

Lewin, Weinstein and Riddell's Gastrointestinal Pathology and Its Clinical Implications, 2nd Edition, has been completely revised to reflect more than two decades of advances in the field since the first edition published in 1992.  The new edition looks closely at clinical/pathological correlations and differential diagnoses and their affect on patient management.  It also includes new approaches to treatment options for colitis and gastritis.  More than 2,000 full-color illustrations are included to highlight pathologic features to sharpen diagnostic skills and guide treatment choices.

"These titles showcase Wolters Kluwer Health's strength in pathology and the immense talent and expertise that our authors and contributors bring to bear on the topic," said Ryan Shaw, Acquisitions Editor, Professional & Education, Wolters Kluwer Health.  "It's exciting to see two well established works maintain the essence of what made them popular but continue to evolve so that they remain useful for future generations of pathologists and clinicians."
