A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this book presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to the way they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped according to their histologic patterns to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides. The approach is based on pattern recognition and emphasizes differential diagnosis. The book contains over 500 full-color photomicrographs and 50 tables summarizing key clinical and pathologic features and differential diagnostic issues. A companion Website will offer 900 full-color images, plus the fully searchable text and a test bank that is ideal for board preparation.

A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this new edition of Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to that in which they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped together according to their histologic patterns rather than by the traditional benign-malignant categorization in order to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides on a daily basis. The role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems in breast pathology is emphasized where appropriate. In addition, the clinical significance and impact on patient management of the various diagnoses are discussed and key clinical and management points highlighted.

Gastrointestinal mucosal biopsies are an active part of the pathologist's day and have increased in the past few years as endoscopic screening has become more commonplace. This new full-color Second Edition of Biopsy Interpretation of the Gastrointestinal Tract Mucosa has been expanded into two concise, comprehensive volumes to offer more complete coverage of both non-neoplastic and neoplastic entities. Like the other books in the Biopsy Interpretation Series, these volumes are practical references for pathologists to use when making diagnostic decisions based on biopsy specimens. Volume 2 of this Second Edition focuses on interpretation of neoplastic gastrointestinal mucosal biopsies. Coverage is geared to daily practice and includes mucosal biopsies from the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus. A companion website will include all of the 300 print illustrations plus an additional 750 e-figures. Volume 1 focuses on non-neoplastic biopsies and published in November 2011.

This book is primarily addressed to the needs of the trainee histopathologist. It is intended to bridge that gap between the descriptive histopathology taught as part of the undergraduate medical curriculum and the interpretative skills required of the diagnostician. My object is to convey the basic general principles, in theory and practice. Books are, however, only adjuncts to practical experience and not substitutes for it. Indeed, to obtain the maximum benefit from this book it is essential that the reader is actively involved in the work of a diagnostic laboratory. Only in this way can the trainee become thoroughly conversant with the rudiments of biopsy interpretation. To retain detailed knowledge of the histological appearances of the plethora of diseases and their permutations to which humans are subject is beyond the mental resources of most individuals. For this reason, histopathologists probably refer to books more often than do most other specialists. This book aims to provide a core of knowledge sufficient to master the fundamental aspects, while still encouraging the intelligent use of all those indispensable atlases, monographs, and fascicles for which there is no substitute.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women in the United States. For the pathologist, almost any breast lesion may produce diagnostic difficulty, especially due to frequently small samples (core biopsy specimens) and a variety of mimics and variants seen in specific types of lesions. Additionally, the difficulty of breast lesion diagnosis has risen dramatically in recent years due to the increased emphasis on stratifying patients for appropriate therapy on an individual basis; the wider range of both local and systemic therapeutic options, and the potential for earlier diagnosis through increased mammographic breast screening leading to a higher likelihood of a favorable outcome. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology provides a highly visual presentation of the major problems and questions that a pathologist is likely to encounter in the evaluation of common and uncommon breast diseases. Coverage includes needle core biopsy interpretation, diagnosis of precursor lesions, early stage disease, and recognition of neoplastic mimics and other misleading variants. In addition, this book emphasizes particularly difficult areas including the use of newer immunohistochemical markers. Throughout, the emphasis is on an easily accessible presentation with tables and lists of key points summarizing major findings and numerous high-quality images supporting the text. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology will be a valuable reference for every pathologist who deals with the diagnosis of breast diseases. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology Features: Each chapter authored by recognized expert in the area Hundreds of high-quality images Tables and key points in each chapter summarize the most important findings Coverage based on addressing in detail the real-world diagnostic problems the pathologist will face in daily practice

This comprehensive volume reviews current topics and controversies in diagnostic breast pathology, and addresses frequently encountered diagnostic problems using a question and answer format and case presentations. Emphasis is placed on the diagnostic approach as it relates to morphology, clinical and radiographic correlation, differential diagnosis, and ancillary testing including immunohistochemical and molecular analyses. Answers are provided and serve as a practical, evidence-based, and problem solving guide to diagnostic issues having significant impacts on clinical management. Common but diagnostically challenging entities such as papillary lesions and fibroepithelial lesions are discussed in detail, as well as special types of breast cancer including solid papillary carcinoma, lobular lesions and its variants. Uncommon breast lesions such as mesenchymal, lymphoid, and metastatic lesions are also covered. Chapters discuss genetic alterations and molecular abnormalities in breast cancer, and commonly encountered interpretation dilemmas on immunohistochemistry in breast cancer and metastatic cancer to the breast with a focus on prognostic and predictive tumor biomarkers.

In 2002, Lippincott published the Manual of Breast Diseases, edited by Professor Ismail Jatoi. The current book, Management of Breast Diseases, is an adaptation of that manual, with Professor Manfred Kaufmann of the Goethe-University of Frankfurt serving as co-editor. Most of the chapters from the original manual have been either extensively revised or discarded, and several new chapters added. This text contains more material than the original manual, but it is still intended as a basic guide for the wide spectrum of clinicians (surgeons, gynecologists, oncologists, radiation onco- gists, internists, general practitioners) who treat breast diseases, both benign and malignant. To compile this text, we assembled experts from throughout the world. Thus, this text provides not only a broad overview of breast diseases, but also highlights diff- ent perspectives from different parts of the world. Yet, it is worth noting that the management of breast cancer is now largely predicated on evidence-based medicine. Several large, randomized prospective trials have demonstrated the ef? cacy of breast cancer screening and chemoprevention. Other large trials have addressed the impact of systemic therapy, radiotherapy, and variations in local therapy on breast cancer mortality. Many of these landmark trials are discussed in this text, and they clearly have had a bene? cial effect. Indeed, since about 1990, breast cancer mortality rates have declined substantially in most industrialized countries, and this trend is expected to continue in the years ahead.
