Published Reviews


    "This book was intended as an easy-to-use practical guide to the diagnosis of female genital tract lesions. In this reviewer’s opinion, the book exceeds expectations. This beautiful new edition should be on the bookshelf of every pathologist involved in gynecologic pathology." --American Journal of Surgical Pathology, 32: 1591, 2008


    "I was impressed by the authors' ability to have included so much useful information in so compact a volume and in such a useful format. Practically every important subject in gynecological pathology is covered. The authors are also to be congratulated for managing to provide a reasonably balanced approach when discussing controversial issues... In this reviewer's opinion, it exceeds expectations... The tradition of excellence in the teaching of gynecological pathology by the authors' mentor, Dr Robert E. Scully, has been continued." --American Journal of Surgical Pathology, 25: 271, 2001

    "Overall, this is the best single atlas of gynecologic pathology on the market today. Comparie it to any other and its superiority is quickly obvious... The book is eminently practical and needed." --International Journal of Gynecological Pathology, 19: 296, 2000

    "The appendices will come as a delight to patternspottingphiles... Overall I thought this atlas was an excellent read, visually dynamic, with scholarly, comprehensive coverage." --Histopathology, 38: 78, 2001

    "Highly recommend this purchase of this book, not only by pathologists in general practice, but also by busy gynecologists who need to understand the clinical significance of the pathology reported by their colleagues, and by residents in both pathology and gynecology who need a quick reference and rapid introduction to the literature. When time is short and communication between gynecologists and pathologists less frequent, this book can help bring both to a common ground of understanding." — The Journal of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists 7:9, 2000

    "A good source of information and reference material...Recommend it as a bench book for anyone reporting gynecological specimens." — The Royal College of Pathologists

    "A worthy addition to the published armamentarium that increasingly crosses the disciplinary interface between the clinical and pathologic approaches to the diagnosis of disease." — Current Surgery
