book over the Christmas holiday period. I reflected on the

This is the 16th fascicle of the third series of the Armed
Forces Institute of Pathology atlases. It is substantially more
detailed than its companion volume from the second series and
is an encyclopaedic guide to every type of tumour that occurs
within the heart and great vessels! It is a timely publication, for
the most detailed textbook of cardiovascular pathology, edited
by Silva in Toronto, came out in 1991. Since that time, there
have been substantial advances in clinical methods of detecting
intracardiac pathology and these are well summarized in the
second chapter of this fascicle.

cardiac and vascular tumours. All are magnificently illustrated,
with an excellent balance between black and white and colour
prints. The references are laid out with helpful sub-headings
and for most chapters there are well over 50 separate citations.
This volume is an invaluable source of data on these rare
lesions. In some fascicles, interesting non-tumorous conditions
and malformations are sometimes included in the text. This
volume would have been of more value to practising pathologists if sections on hypertrophic and congestive cardiomyopathies, including right ventricular cardiomyopathy, could also
have been included. Of course, these are not tumours, but
they are conditions that puzzle practising pathologists quite
