Overview

A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this new edition of Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to that in which they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped together according to their histologic patterns rather than by the traditional benign-malignant categorization in order to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides on a daily basis. The role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems in breast pathology is emphasized where appropriate.
In addition, the clinical significance and impact on patient management of the various diagnoses are discussed and key clinical and management points highlighted.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ivan Damjanov, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This book on breast pathology is part of the popular Biopsy Interpretation Series, which includes several well received titles in a similar format. This one predominantly deals with the most important benign and malignant breast lesions, but it is also eclectic and thus covers more or less the entire spectrum of changes to be found microscopically in breast biopsies. The book is well illustrated and includes access to a web site that contains additional histopathology pictures.
Purpose: It is designed as a compact guide to surgical pathology of breast biopsies to serve as a quick reference for practicing surgical pathologists, but it also could serve as a textbook for pathologists in training. The authors meet their objectives with this very useful book.
Audience: Intended for surgical pathologists, its readers will include both practicing pathologists and novices at various educational levels of training. The authors are among the leading experts in the field of breast pathology with a number of important publications to their credit. They are also well known educators and serve as consultants to many other pathologists. The book reflects their long-term commitment to the study of breast pathology and is based on years of practice as well discussions about various breast lesions.
Features: Like the other titles in this series, this book comes in a relatively small format, which will make if handy as a desk reference. The 20 chapters begin with normal anatomy and histology of the breast and end with specimen processing, evaluation, and reporting. It covers all breast pathology, including reactive inflammatory lesions, benign tumors, and malignant tumors. Common lesions are given more space than the rare entities, but the less common ones are discussed I could not find any significant omissions. All chapters are well illustrated with high quality color photographs and well referenced with relevant and recent citations referring to articles in the leading pathology journals. The text is supplemented with tables summarizing key diagnostic features and differential diagnosis. In addition to the 550 color microphotographs, there are 300 photographs in the web site supplement which is available to readers through an access code.
Assessment: There are currently several very good surgical pathology books dealing with breast pathology, but none of them summarizes the salient problems of breast pathology better and more comprehensively than this compact yet truly wonderful book. My colleagues, who know much more breast pathology than I, swear by it and use it to support their diagnoses and even to occasionally lecture me by quoting from its pages. Over the last few months, I have also begun to use it and I have become convinced that it contains just the right amount of facts for an ideal quick, yet trustworthy reference. I enthusiastically recommend it to practicing pathologists and their trainees.
