About this book


This text is written for the obstetrician, gynecologist, pathologist, and for residents training in these disciplines. It is a multi-authored book and the editor is aware of the problems this can create, but the expansion of information in the field of gynecologic pathology renders single au­ thorship obsolete. The format is largely traditional but the contents in­ clude topics that have not appeared in past texts. Clear cell adenocarcinoma of the vagina and vaginal and cervical adenoses are discussed in detail in a separate chapter. A chapter on embryology and congenital anomalies is writ­ ten by an embryologist and the advantage of its inclusion is self evident. Ovarian neoplasms in childhood and ado­ lescence are fortunately rare occurrences, but information concerning them is generally not readily available in exist­ ing texts. It is of sufficient importance to deserve a separate chapter. Amniotic fluid analysis for fetal viability is now commonly used and for this reason a detailed discussion of this subject is presented. A chapter is included on gross description and prepara­ tion of gynecologic specimens. It contains the input and review of several directors of gynecologic-pathology labo­ ratories.
