Derived from the authors' long-running course presented at the International Academy of Pathology, this second edition, now with color illustrations, continues the tradition of its predecessor as being the concise and complete diagnostic guide to the endometrial biopsy. The text is structured so as to present a logical approach to formulating a pathologic diagnosis from the diverse array of tissue received in the surgical pathology laboratory. Color illustrations show typical artifacts and distortion, and explain their impact on diagnostic interpretation. Each chapter includes a section summarizing the features that must be discussed in the final pathology report.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara M Shideler, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a useful guide to the diagnosis of endometrial biopsies, with an emphasis on the clinical aspects of gynecologic pathology. It reflects updated knowledge in gynecologic pathology of the last few years, and the relevance of pathologic diagnosis to patient care. The first edition was published in 1995.
Purpose: The purpose is to offer a practical reference for the everyday interpretation of endometrial biopsies and curettings. The objective seems worthy, as the authors realistically address both classic and less-than-perfect examples of tissues that the surgical pathologist may encounter. The authors have succeeded nicely in meeting this objective.
Audience: The book is directed at practicing pathologists, both in general surgical pathology and in gynecologic pathology. The book would also be useful to residents and fellows in surgical pathology, and those in obstetrics and gynecology who wish to increase their knowledge of gynecologic pathology and oncology. The authors exhibit a wealth of experience in pathology and pathophysiology of gynecologic diagnostic entities as well as knowledge of current trends in grading, staging, and clinical implications of the pathology report.
Features: The book addresses both neoplastic and non-neoplastic diagnostic entities in an orderly sequence. The authors include interesting clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment and the implications of the pathology report in patient care for most illnesses. Detailed pathophysiologic descriptions are given, as well as immunohistochemical staining patterns and photomicrographs of many disorders. Approximately two-thirds of the photomicrographs are black and white, with the remaining one-third in color. The photos are useful and reproduce well, and include detailed legends that are helpful to the reader.
Assessment: This is a high-quality and useful contribution to gynecologic surgical pathology. The second edition reflects necessary updates in the knowledge and treatment of gynecologic diagnostic entities, both neoplastic and non-neoplastic.
