Brown: Pathology of the Vulva and Vagina
By Laurence Brown
2012 (1st ed), 299 pages, 125 illus, $149 list
Pathology of the Vulva and Vagina introduces the topic with a stylishly illustrated description of the embryology and development which is fundamental to understanding the pathogenesis and symptomatology. Subsequent chapters cover infections and non-infectious dermatoses, specifying those that can predispose to cancer. The precancerous conditions of vulval intraepithelial neoplasia, melanocytic proliferations and extra-mammary Paget's disease are integrated respectively with accounts of human papilloma virus, malignant melanoma and recent awareness of ano-genital mammary-like glands. Advances in the recognition of potentially confusing benign conditions, prognosis and staging update the pathology of squamous and adenocarcinoma in these organs. The difficulties of sentinel node biopsy are explored and a comprehensive chapter clearly highlights the difficult differential diagnosis of mesenchymal lesions.
Chhieng: Cytology and Surgical Pathology of Gynecologic Neoplasms
By David Chhieng
2010 (1st ed), 264 illus, 150 pages, $139 list
Cytology and Surgical Pathology of Gynecologic Neoplasms has been written to provide a practical reference for practicing pathologists and cytopathologists in a quick and concise fashion. The primary focus of this book is on gynecological tumors, specifically common ones and their benign mimics. Emphasis is placed on morphologic recognition, resolving common diagnostic problems seen in routine practices, and discussion of current classification of gynecologic malignancies. Special references to the differential diagnosis and pitfalls of each entity are included. The role of cytology and its correlation with histology is richly illustrated and discussed. Also presented is the practical use of ancillary studies such as molecular diagnostic testing and immunohistochemistry. With a unique emphasis on the correlation between cytology and surgical pathology, Cytology and Surgical Pathology of Gynecologic Neoplasms provides a ready reference for both the practicing pathologist and pathologist in training in finding quick answers to their diagnostic challenges.

Dallenbach-Hellwag: Histopathology of the Endometrium
By Gisela Dallenbach-Hellweg
2010 (3rd ed), 359 pages, 149 illus, $169 list
The prime purpose of this atlas is to help the pathologist find, classify and differentially diagnose the changes he is observing. Information on the daily changes during the menstrual cycle and how to date them is essential for recognizing changes caused by abnormal endogenic and iatrogenic hormonal stimuli in functional endometrial disturbances. To provide their patients with the proper hormonal therapy, gynecologists cannot rely on blood samples only because of the constantly fluctuating hormonal levels. A precise functional diagnosis of the endometrial biopsy is the most accurate and best means for assessing hormonal action. Numerous microphotographs explain in detail how to recognize the normal and pathological changes that can develop in the endometrium. The subject of endometritis and the complex endometrial neoplasms and their precursors, with their differential diagnosis as well as their clinical prognosis are covered in detail. To complete the endometrial histopathology, gestational changes are reviewed and illustrated in the last chapter.

Kigawa: Atlas of Clear Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary: A Pathological Guide
By Junzo Kigawa and Tsunehisa Kaku, Toru Sugiyama, Steven G Silverberg
2015, 45 pages, $121 list
Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) of the ovary with its unique clinical and biological features has attracted great attention, and calls for the publication of a specialized book on the subject. This is the first atlas that has narrowed its focus to CCC. Revealed here are the typical and variable histological features of CCC and related tumors. Hundreds of high-quality photographs help the reader to recognize the pathological features and clinical manifestations of CCC and to formulate diagnoses confidently and accurately. Data are based on the international central pathological review of the JGOG/GCIG3017 clinical trial in which experts around the world participated. Using a virtual slide system, interesting and significant features of CCC were discovered in the review of 652 cases. This book provides the newest information on the categorization and classification of CCC: growth patterns (papillary, tubocystic, solid, and adenofibromatous), cell types (classical hobnail and clear cell, eosinophilic, oxyphilic, and oncocytic), stromal changes (hyalinized, necrotic, hemorrhagic, lymphocytic infiltrative, luteinized, and psammomatous calcification), presence of endometriosis and atypical endometriosis, and borderline/atypical proliferative tumors. The Atlas of Clear Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary is an invaluable diagnostic resource for pathologists and gynecologic oncologists.

Kurman: Tumors of the Cervix, Vagina, and Vulva (Vol 13)
By Robert J. Kurman, Brigitte M. Ronnett, Mark E. Sherman, and Edward J. Wilkinson
2010, 431 pages, $150 list
The publication of this Fascicle marks the transition in diagnosis of lower genital tract lesions from a largely morphologic activity to one based upon in­tegrated assessment using microscopy and molecular biology. Furthermore, the ability to integrate these diagnostic approaches with clinical data for patient man­agement has been heightened. The introduction of prophylactic vaccines for preventing human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and cervical cancer precursors also thrusts pathology into a new unprecedented public health role with regard to disease monitoring, which will likely expand over time.Finally, the realization that cervical cancer is becoming increasingly preventable, carries with it both a sense of accomplishment and the recognition that this must now be translated into an achievable goal of cancer prevention in underdeveloped nations. Although the text has remained concise in order to maintain the primary function of the Fascicle as an atlas rather than a comprehensive text­book, it has been substantially updated to reflect the changes in the field since the previous edition was published in 1992. In this regard, the number of illustrations, all of which are in color, has almost doubled. Both the text and the photomicrographs emphasize the impor­tance of immunohistochemistry andmolecular in situ hybridization as adjuncts to morphology in routine clinical diagnosis. A binary (low-grade and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion) classification for histology, analogous to TBS for cytology, replaces the four-tiered dysplasia/CIS system and the three-tiered CIN system. This Fascicle will be a useful reference for pathologists, residents, and students for years to come.

By Roger Reichert
2011, 648 pages, 1600 illus, $256 list
In covering the topic of gynecologic and obstetric pathology, this book attempts to carve out its own niche midway between an atlas and a traditional textbook. The gross and microscopic images in this atlas are presented exclusively in color, and are supplemented by pertinent clinical information and discussions of differential diagnostic considerations. When deemed appropriate, images of immunohistochemical and special stains are included. To further enhance their visual appeal and the overall learning experience, many images in this book are presented with annotations and/or in composite form, and selected images have been enlarged. This image-intensive textbook also includes numerous Pap smear images and cytologic-histologic correlations. In addition to coverage of pathology of the organs of the female genital tract, brief overviews of the normal histology of these sites are provided as necessary background information. Separate chapters are also devoted to placental and peritoneal pathology. There is an emphasis on diagnostic-related issues pertaining to common lesions and their variants, although classic forms of rare lesions are also presented. In selected instances, recommendations on the processing of gross pathology specimens, discussions regarding the optimal approach for intraoperative consultations, and recommendations on the phrasing of key portions of pathology reports are provided.
