About this book

Introduction

The neoplasms found in the female genital tract are numerous and growing more complex. Cytology and Surgical Pathology of Gynecologic Neoplasms has been written to provide a practical reference for practicing pathologists and cytopathologists in a quick and concise fashion. The primary focus of this book is on gynecological tumors, specifically common ones and their benign mimics. Emphasis is placed on morphologic recognition, resolving common diagnostic problems seen in routine practices, and discussion of current classification of gynecologic malignancies. Special references to the differential diagnosis and pitfalls of each entity are included. The role of cytology and its correlation with histology is richly illustrated and discussed. Also presented is the practical use of ancillary studies such as molecular diagnostic testing and immunohistochemistry. With a unique emphasis on the correlation between cytology and surgical pathology, Cytology and Surgical Pathology of Gynecologic Neoplasms provides a ready reference for both the practicing pathologist and pathologist in training in finding quick answers to their diagnostic challenges.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This concise and practical reference focuses primarily on gynecological tumors and includes corresponding histology and cytology for easy comparison for both surgical pathologists and cytopathologists. … this book is a nice introductory text and a quick practical reference for pathology residents, fellows, and junior practicing pathologists. Gynecology residents and gynecologic oncologists also may find it useful reference. … The text is supplemented with high-quality images accompanied by succinct and useful figure legends, as well as useful small tables for differential diagnoses.” (Fang Fan, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2011)
