About the Authors
  • With its unique algorithmic and pattern-based approach, Diagnosis of Neoplasia in Endometrial Biopsies is an essential practical guide to interpreting endometrial biopsy samples. All potential entities are classified based on the dominant histologic pattern, with each resulting sub-group progressively sub-classified to reach a diagnosis. Decision tree flowcharts facilitate rapid narrowing of the differential diagnosis. Recent advancements are discussed and explained, and strengths and limitations of diagnostic tests are identified in the context of their application to the biopsy sample. Lavishly illustrated throughout, this book serves the practising pathologist as a scope-side assistant for quick reference, up-to-date guidance, and recommendations for ancillary testing. For the resident, this book facilitates quick and comprehensive mastery of the interpretation and diagnosis of endometrial biopsies. The book is packaged with a password, giving the user online access to all the text and images.

    • Over 400 high-quality color images, including over 250 taken from biopsy cases, enabling easy identification of key features as they pertain to biopsy samples
    • Describes a pattern-based approach to the diagnosis of neoplasms in endometrial biopsies and curettages, facilitating rapid narrowing of differential diagnosis
    • Offers up-to-date information with a practical algorithmic format, providing a quick and easy reference

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book's tone is both descriptive and analytical. Given the title, every chapter has a plethora of flow charts and photomicrographs which, if indeed adhered to, will make life much easier for histopathologists reporting endometrial biopsies … [This book] should be considered as a valuable addition to the increasing number of bench books on uterine pathology.' The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists
