12 March 2016: Website should be back to normal

Our website should be back to normal after some slowness on Thursday, and some brief down time tonight.  We apologize for any inconvenience, and are working to ensure it does not happen again.  We have been making a lot of changes, and although we have been careful, we have seen some unintended consequences of some activities.  Let us know if you spot any problems.

8 March 2016: Books page live, new affiliate relationship with Elsevier

Our new Books page is now live - test it out and let us know what you think, or if you have any questions.

We have started an affiliate relationship with Elsevier, in which they pay us 8% of the price of all of their books purchased through links on our website.  This is an alternative to Amazon links.  Currently, we have a link to Scheuer: Liver Biopsy Interpretation on the Home Page, and to Lefkowitch: Anatomic Pathology Board Review on various pages, and are adding a few new links every day.  We have kept the Amazon link, and put it at the end of the description on the Books page.  Let us know your experience with purchasing directly from Elsevier online.

4 March 2016: New Books page, Superpages are back

We will soon launch our new Books page, currently with ~1280 pathology related books.  It uses a database structure, which means the books are listed similarly in all places.  Books are listed by date posted, by publisher and by specialty, and there is a search feature by Author and Title words.  Authors - check to make sure we have all of your books posted.  In general, we try to post all books of interest to pathologists posted in 2012 or later, and available on  Books not posted at can be posted for a modest fee - contact Sara at or 284/646-0325 for details.

Superpages are back.  These pages contain all content in all topics for a Chapter on one (sometimes large) page.  They are dynamically generated from the current topic pages, which means they always contain the latest content.  Currently, they are available for the Adrenal gland, Ampulla, Appendix, CD Markers and Stains chapters.  The link is at the end of the standard Table of Contents.  As we convert each chapter to our new format, we will add a Superpage link.

Contact us with any questions at or 248/646-0325.
