Diagnosis of Endometrial Biopsies and Curettings: A Practical Approach 2nd Edition

by Michael Mazur (Author), Robert J. Kurman (Author)


The third edition of this text entails a comprehensive review of pathophysiology, including the recognition of physiologic conditions and
pathologic entities, such as polyps, endometritis, gestational trophoblastic diseases, endometrial hyperplasia, and carcinoma. It also
serves as an update on the use of current terminology and ancillary tools. Th e authors incorporate signifi cant updates related to the
expansion of their knowledge of old and newer entities and the use of immunohistochemical and molecular ancillary techniques to assist in
accurately diagnosing endometrial biopsies. Th e chapters also include recommendations and suggestions of appropriate terminology for a
pathology report, as well as specifi c pitfalls, mimickers and confounding factors in the diagnosis of endometrial samples, such as surface
metaplasias, cytoplasmic changes, and endocervical contaminants. The complicated subject of hyperplasia and cancer precursors is discussed
at length with an expanded commentary on the application of the term endometrioid intraepithelial neoplasia (EIN) and how it
relates to the traditional classifi cation of endometrial hyperplasia. Additionally, a substantial number of new, richly colored images
helps readers fully understand and confi dently classify such complex specimens.
The newest edition of Diagnosis of Endometrial Biopsies and Curettings serves as a useful resource not only for pathologists in training
and practicing pathologists, but also to experienced physicians, other health care providers and researchers that deal with and are interested
in endometrial pathology.
