About this book


The prime purpose of this atlas is to help the pathologist to find, classify, and differentially diagnose the changes seen. The text provides a description of the pathology of the diseases, summarizes and differentiates the causes, and explains the clinical importance of the condition and how to treat it, emphasising the importance of a constant mutual cooperation with the attending gynecologist. This new edition differs from the preceding one in that there has been extensive revision in most chapters. Recent advances in research gained by immunohistochemical and molecular biological methods are included, as far as they are applicable to daily diagnostic work. The chapter on neoplasms, in particular, has been greatly expanded in accordance with the new WHO International Histological Classification of genital tract tumors. A new chapter has been added on gestational diseases, incorporating recent studies on spontaneous abortion, chromosomal anomalies, and trophoblastic tumors. New discoveries and experiences in correlating structure and function in infertility and in hormone replacement therapy of peri- and postmenopausal patients are given in detail.
