WHO Classification of Tumours of the Urinary System and Male Genital Organs is the eighth volume in the 4th Edition of the WHO series on histological and genetic typing of human tumors. This authoritative, concise reference book provides an international standard for oncologists and pathologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome.

Diagnostic criteria, pathological features, and associated genetic alterations are described in a strictly disease-oriented manner. Sections on all recognized neoplasms and their variants include new ICD-O codes, epidemiology, clinical features, macroscopy, pathology, genetics, and prognosis and predictive factors. It contains numerous color photographs, MRIs, ultrasound images, CT scans, charts and references.

This book is in the series commonly referred to as the "Blue Book" series.

"The editors and their contributors have provided an extraordinarily readable fascicle that is clearly also a scholarly text. They are to be congratulated in updating numerous details in these important areas in both a comprehensive and readily attainable manner. The use of this fascicle can be highly recommended to those already knowledgeable and well-established in the clinical and research areas of these organ systems as well as those at an earlier stage in their career who seeks to expand their knowledge and understanding."
