This Collection highlights the newest top-viewed content from Modern Pathology. Updated each month, we hope you enjoy reading this curated list of articles, which features content from across the spectrum of pathology research. Modern Pathology aims to provide a forum for the sharing and discussion of developments in all areas of pathology, by publishing advances in the understanding of pathologic processes, clinical pathologic correlations, scientific advances, and the evaluation of new and existing diagnostic applications.
This collection provides a practical approach to issues frequently encountered in dermatopathology. These papers present the salient features of common dermatopathologic lesions, a choice of relevant ancillary tests and tips to avoid misdiagnosis.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most prevalent chronic liver disease worldwide. The pathological spectrum of NAFLD ranges from simple steatosis to the necro-inflammatory and fibro-progressive form, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which may then progress to cirrhosis, liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. This web focus features papers from Laboratory Investigation and Modern Pathology that present new models and techniques, diagnostic advances, mechanistic insights and potential innovative therapies for NAFLD and NASH.

The editors of Laboratory Investigation and Modern Pathology present a variety of recent papers related to ocular pathology. These experimental and diagnostic studies cover congenital anomalies, corneal injury and repair, degenerative disease, and various malignancies.
The editors of Modern Pathology present a collection of innovative papers from European authors. The studies describe novel uses of image analysis, potential new biomarkers, and advances in molecular pathology.
In this era of minimally-invasive procedures for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment decisions, pathologists are asked to make more specific diagnoses from smaller samples. We asked top experts in their fields to discuss their strategies and most practical approaches to maximizing the information gained from limited specimens.
The editors of Modern Pathology are pleased to present a selection of recent papers that focus on the diagnosis of gastrointestinal cancers from top international researchers in anatomic and molecular pathology. We present studies on prognostic markers of colorectal cancer and classification of gastric carcinoma, as well as research on the pathobiology of less common conditions such as colorectal mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma, small intestinal adenocarcinoma and gastroblastoma.
