By Thomas Lawton
2009 (1st ed), 256 pages, 317 illus, $187 list
Breast pathology is arguably considered the most challenging and controversial area of diagnostic pathology. Many gradations of normal, pre-cancerous, and cancerous conditions are often indistinguishable, making a clear-cut diagnosis very difficult and often a cause for intense debate. This latest book in the Cambridge Illustrated Surgical Pathology series comprehensively covers all methods utilized by pathologists to accurately diagnose diseases affecting the breast. Malignant tumors are the predominant focus, but a full spectrum of inflammatory disorders and hyperplasias is also covered in detail, and the book uniquely shows the progression of disease states from incipient to advanced. Findings are diagnosed not only through the light microscope but also through genetic, molecular, and immunologic modalities; the text additionally includes the interpretation of cytologic specimens as an important diagnostic modality in breast pathology. The book is highly illustrated, with more than 300 color photomicrographs, and accompanied by a CD-ROM of all images in downloadable format.

Rosen: Tumors of the Mammary Gland (Vol 7)
By Paul Peter Rosen and Harold A. Oberman
1993, 382 pages, $59 list
The expanded size and scope of this third edition of Tumors of the Mammary Gland reflect the explosive growth of information relating to breast disease that has occurred in the last 25 years. The comprehensive text begins with an introduction that traces the controversial issue of precancerous or proliferative breast lesions from the first fascicle (authored in 1950 by Stewart) to the present. Nearly 25% of the 382 pages of text and 593 illustrations are devoted to the pathology of benign proliferative lesions, atypical hyperplasia, and in-situ carcinoma. The classification of mammary tumors employed in this volume is based on one adopted by the World Health Organization in 1981. However, the listing has been substantially expanded to include more than 20 specific entities described in succeeding years. Subheadings have also been added for a number of clinicopathologic conditions with distinctive pathologic characteristics such as occult carcinoma presenting with axillary lymph node metastases. The text includes sections on mammary gland anatomy, developmental and physiological abnormalities, and inflammatory conditions. Extensively illustrated sections describe benign proliferative lesions, benign epithelial tumors, fibroepithelial neoplasms (fibroadenoma and cystosarcoma), atypical hyperplasia and in-situ carcinoma of lobules and ducts, 17 subtypes of invasive carcinoma, breast tumors in children, tumors of the male breast, mesenchymal tumors, and Iymphoid neoplasms. Separate sections are devoted to the TNM staging of carcinoma, unusual clinical manifestations of breast carcinoma, the pathology of axillary lymph nodes, cytologic diagnosis of breast lesions, and the pathologic examination of breast specimens. Of particular note are discussions of papillary neoplasms, atypical hyperplasia and in-situ carcinoma, prognostic markers in carcinoma, and vascular neoplasms. The detailed histopathological descriptions consider differential diagnosis and discuss the role of immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, and other procedures for establishing the pathologic diagnosis. The clinical characteristics of the lesions are described, and the current treatment options reported in the literature are summarized.
Schnitt: Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast
By Stuart Schnitt
2012 (2nd ed), 512 pages, 300 illus, $164 list
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.

Thomas: Breast Cancer and its Precursor Lesions
By Patricia Thomas
2010 (1st ed), 102 pages, 46 illus, $139 list
Rather than an exhaustive review of all the pathologic conditions of the female breast, Breast Cancer and its Precursor Lesions focuses on the current knowledge, understanding and issues related to breast cancer and its benign lesions that are associated with an increased risk for the subsequent development of cancer. This book targets the language, diagnostic terms and critical communication that must take place between primary care physicians, breast surgeons, oncologists, and general surgical pathologists interested in the pathologist’s perspective on these important diseases. The volume also reviews the current terminology and how to read or write meaningful pathology reports on these entities, the foils and nuances of the pathology and implications for management, and up to date issues in genomics and proteomics of these conditions. The text is succinct, fully informative, and written in “plain language”. All chapters are presented in a uniform fashion, and supplemented by high-quality illustrations and tables. Breast Cancer and its Precursor Lesions will be of great value to pathologists as well as primary care physicians, breast surgeons, and oncologists for understanding breast pathology and its implications for management.
Tot: Breast Cancer
By Tibor Tot
2011 (1st ed), 216 pages, 391 illus, $139 list
The theory of the sick lobe states that breast carcinoma is a lobar disease developing most often within a single lobe, meaning that, at an early stage, breast carcinoma occupies a limited, anatomically well-defined portion of the breast. This theory unites observed patterns from the genetic, developmental and morphological perspectives, into an overall concept. Breast Cancer: A Lobar Disease, presents this hypothesis and its consequences. The body of evidence, pro and contra, generated in recent years is presented in this volume. The chapters, all authored by leading experts in their respective areas, gather evidence from the perspectives of epidemiology, genetics, radiology, anatomy, developmental biology, morphology, endoscopy, ultrasound and therapeutics to give the reader a full picture of recent developments regarding the sick lobe hypothesis. Tibor Tot, MD PhD is Head of the Pathology and Clinical Cytology Department at the Central Hospital of Falun, in Sweden; breast cancer expert of the National Board of Health and Welfare in Sweden; and regular Course Director of the breast pathology program, the official educational program for Swedish residents in clinical pathology, oncology, radiology and surgery.
