DIAGNOSIS OF ENDOMETRIAL BIOPSIES, Second Edition, revised and now with color illustrations, continues the tradition as being the most concise and complete diagnostic guide to the endometrial biopsy. A review from MODERN PATHOLOGY praises it as being "extremely useful for the practicing pathologist because it outlines criteria for diagnosis, helps in solving diagnostic 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. Color illustrations show typical artifacts and distortion and explain their impact on diagnostic interpretation. Each chapter includes a section on "Clinical Queries and Reporting" that 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.
