This comprehensive reference addresses all aspects of fetal and neonatal pathology, including complicated pregnancies, multiple pregnancies, abortion, placental pathology, and disorders affecting the full-term neonate. A consistent organization allows for quick access to specific guidance, and nearly 2,500 illustrations - 2,350 in full color - depict conditions and abnormalities as they present in practice, facilitating diagnosis. An Image Bank on CD-ROM - new to this edition - features all of the illustrations from the 2-volume set, downloadable for presentations.
Offers comprehensive coverage of all common and rare embryonic, fetal, and infant disorders in one source.
Correlates clinical, pathologic, and genetic findings for each systemic disease.

"Should appeal to every pathologist who deals with the disorders and deformities of early life." -- Pediatric and Developmental Pathology, 2007
"The presentation is spectacular. 2,350 (94%) of the illustrations are in color, and most are of excellent quality." -- Pediatric and Developmental Pathology, 2007
"This is a work that pleases the eye, feeds the mind and tones the arm muscles.... So get out that credit card, bulk up those biceps, reinforce your bookshelves and add these lovely and generally excellent volumes to your departmental or personal library." -- Pediatric and Developmental Pathology, 2007
"One of the most exciting features of this work is the more than 2500 labeled photographs of gross and microscopic pathologic specimens. Many of the images have helpful radiologic correlations ... The second edition of Potter's Pathology of the Fetus, Infant and Child should not only be the text of choice for pediatric pathologists but should be a primary reference for obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, pediatricians, geneticists, and pediatric surgeons who care for the fetus or infant with complications." -- JAMA, 2008
"These volumes should not only be on the shelves of pediatric pathologists and pediatricians but should reach all pathologists and advanced trainees whose practices or subspecialty interests include fetal or perinatal pathology... In busy pathology departments where the most useful textbooks tend to "disappear," one could easily predict that the words "Where's Potter's?" will be uttered frequently. For this reason, you'd better get two!" - Journal of Neuropathology & Experimental Neurology, 2007
