Diagnosis of Endometrial Biopsies and Curettings, 2nd edition, revised and now with color illustrations, continues the tradition of its predecessor as being the concise and complete diagnostic guide to the endometrial biopsy. A review from Modern Pathology touts it as being "extremely useful for the practicing pathologist because it outlines criteria for diagnosis, helps in solving diagnostic dilemmas, and clarifies controversial issues." The text is structured to present a logical approach to formulating a pathologic diagnosis from the diverse array of tissue received in the surgical pathology laboratory with an emphasis on differential diagnosis. More than 220 illustrations complement the text, with 70 of them in full color throughout. Each chapter includes a section on "Clinical Queries and Reporting", which summarizes the features that must be discussed in the final pathology report. The authors are two prominent gynecologic pathologists, and this book is derived from their long-running Short Course presented at the International Academy of Pathology. From rave reviews of the first edition: "This delightful and well written monograph stresses the practical aspects and common problems in endometrial biopsy interpretation. The preface states that this dissertation focuses on often subtle microscopic findings ignored by most standard texts but often present pathologists with significant challenges in daily practice. Substantially, the authors succeed in their goal." Int J Gyn Path.
