Handbook of Endometrial Pathology is a practical, clinically oriented reference on endometrial pathology. It is detailed enough for pathologists yet has a clinical focus that ensures its relevance and appeal to gynaecologists. The book covers the clinical aspects of evaluating the endometrium and the pathology of endometrial diseases, with differential diagnoses included as appropriate. There is a chapter on the histologic pitfalls in diagnosis and a final chapter on the latest information on molecular mechanisms and immunohistochemical tests.
