Edited by two eminent authorities on breast pathology, this heavily illustrated text offers essential guidance on diagnostic evaluation of needle core biopsies. The focus is on the most common and challenging differential diagnostic problems encountered in these specimens. More than 1,100 full-color illustrations depict the entire spectrum of breast pathology seen in needle core biopsies.
This edition includes new information on issues in the diagnosis of solid papillary carcinoma; molecular studies of microglandular adenosis; carcinoma with basal phenotype; the e-cadherin immunostain in the diagnosis of lobular carcinoma; use of immunostains to distinguish between papilloma and low-grade papillary carcinoma; and use of myoepithelial immunostains in the diagnosis of microinvasive carcinoma. The book also includes new data on treatment and prognosis.
A companion website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

Doody's Book Review Service, 29-SEP-06, Ivan Damjanov, MD, PhD, University of Kansas Medical Center -- "The 31 chapters cover the entire spectrum of breast pathology, including inflammatory lesions and benign and malignant neoplasms. Normal breast histology is also described, and chapters cover handling of biopsy specimens, radiologic data obtained by mammography, and the clinical significance of the pathology findings. The book is illustrated with high quality color microphotographs prepared from routine hematoxylin and eosin slides and immunohistochemically stained slides from the authors' own diagnostic material. Useful tables cover topics such as grading of intraductal and invasive breast carcinoma. "When the first edition of the book was published in 1999, it was greeted as the first and only book dedicated to needle core biopsy of the breast. The second edition has been systematically updated. Many new references have been included and many are as recent as 2005. New photographs have been added and the recent developments are discussed whenever indicated. As such, this edition has retained the position of the leading practice oriented textbook-cum-atlas of breast pathology. It is an essential core title for all surgical pathology libraries."-Doody's Book Review Service (Weighted Numerical Score: 100-5 Stars)
