For this second, expanded edition, most of the chapters have been extensively revised to include the latest immunohistochemical and molecular biological methods. With its clearly thought-out structure, this atlas enables the pathologist to find, classify, and differentially diagnose each disease. 280 top-quality illustrations - over half in full colour - are each accompanied by a description of the pathology of the disease, a summary of the causes, an explanation of its clinical importance, and treatment options, emphasising the importance of constant mutual co-operation with the attending gynaecologist. Microphotographs are arranged systematically according to morphology, and each is followed by a short description together with the aetiology and morphologic and differential diagnosis of the different conditions. Hemming Poulsen is head of the WHO Collaborating Center for the Histological Classification of tumours and the new chapter on neoplasms, for example, reflects this new WHO classification. Additional chapters cover gestational diseases as well as new findings in infertility and hormone replacement therapy.
