This text provides a diagnostic aid to the routine surgical pathologist in the assessment of morphological abnormalities of the ovary and covers the range of disease entities and anomalies with which the pathologist is likely to be confronted. The authors have concentrated on the gross morphological features and microscopic appearances useful in determining disease but have only covered background aetiologic, pathological and therapeutic correlates when these are of importance in establishing the diagnosis.
The book features detailed description and illustration of developmental, dysfunctional, inflammatory, and degenerative disorders as well as neoplasms of the ovary. It should be of interest to histopathologists, surgical pathologists, gynaecological oncologists and endocrinologists.
