Handbook of Endometrial Pathology

by Debra S Heller

Endometrial biopsy specimens are among the most frequent specimens crossing the pathologist’s bench, and among the most complicated. The clinical picture, including such information as patient’s age, hormonal interventions, and menstrual status, are often critical to the interpretation of the specimen. There are many artifacts that interfere with interpretation as well. This book provides the practicing pathologist with the tools to improve diagnostic accuracy of endometrial biopsy specimens, while providing insight to the clinician caring for women. The book includes chapters, such as interpreting pathology results – the value of communication, the normal endometrial cycle, pregnancy-related findings in normal and abnormal pregnancies, organic lesions of the endometrium, dysfunctional uterine bleeding and exogenous hormone effects, endometrial hyperplasia and preinvasive disease, endometrial malignancies, pitfalls in diagnosis, and molecular aspects of endometrial disease.
