"Diagnostic Pathology of Ovarian Tumors" offers a focus on the pathology of ovarian neoplasia with detailed clinically relevant information for practicing pathologists not found in other more general volumes of gynecologic pathology. This important work focuses almost entirely on strategies for accurate diagnosis and histologic subclassification, and the clinical correlates of these diagnosis. It provides evolving guidelines for detecting early ovarian cancer in prophylactic specimens; cutting-edge information on enhancing the reproducible and clinically meaningful subclassification of ovarian carcinoma as well as new proposals for ovarian carcinoma grading. Richly illustrated, containing abundant tables and figures as well as bulleted points of information, "Diagnostic Pathology of Ovarian Tumors" is the first text offering chapters written by practicing gynecologists on how clinical data can enhance pathologic diagnostic accuracy, how pathologists can efficiently convey their diagnostic opinions to gynecologists, and the way in which a given diagnosis triggers a cascade of clinical testing and therapy. "Diagnostic Pathology of Ovarian Tumors" will be of great value to practicing surgical pathologists, including gynecologic pathologists, pathology residents in training, as well as gynecologic and medical oncologists worldwide.

Review quote

From the reviews: "This comprehensive review of ovarian tumor pathology covers everything from frozen section interpretation to clinical correlations. ... It provides current information on everything from molecular pathogenesis to patient outcomes. It would be useful to any pathologist, oncologist, or clinical geneticist who deals with ovarian neoplasms. ... This is a very useful reference as it provides detailed information that is not available in many other books. As a pathology resident, I find the amount of clinical correlation extremely useful." (Roger Vernon Dietz, Doody's Review Service, February, 2012) "A good overview of the pathology of ovarian tumours and is a useful practical guide to develop an approach to diagnosis of ovarian tumours. ... The book is easy to read and is very well illustrated, with a large number of microscopic pictures, including immunohistochemistry and some macroscopic images as well. ... The chapters are not too long and the layout makes it easy to find the needed information. Each chapter is followed by helpful bibliography, including both classic and recent articles." (Mona A. El-Bahrawy, The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, Issue 158, April, 2012)
