Fetal and Neonatal Pathology presents in one volume an account of the pathological findings encountered when examining fetuses from the second and third trimester of pregnancy as well as in neonatal death. It provides essential clinical and physiological information and discusses the pathogenesis of pathological findings as a guide to the formulation of the appropriate method of investigation. The book is divided into two parts. The first deals with examination of the products of conception after termination of pregnancy for fetal anomaly. The range of pathological abnormality is described and its relevance discussed. Attention is drawn to the differences in pathological findings in specific conditions between the second and third trimester. The second part of the book is system orientated and describes and illustrates those pathological problems which are likely to be encountered in the fetus and neonate. Each chapter is introduced by a concise account of the development of that system. Where relevant there is also discussion of changes at birth as well as changes in normal function that may occur during the neonatal period. Fetal and Neonatal Pathology is primarily written for the morbid anatomist and histopathologist. It also provides a valuable source of reference for obstetricians, neonatologists and paediatricians. Its value as a working tool of reference is enhanced by effective cross-referencing between sections by both chapter and page number. 1
