Book Description :

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women in the United States. For the pathologist, almost any breast lesion may produce diagnostic difficulty, especially due to frequently small samples (core biopsy specimens) and a variety of mimics and variants seen in specific types of lesions. Additionally, the difficulty of breast lesion diagnosis has risen dramatically in recent years due to the increased emphasis on stratifying patients for appropriate therapy on an individual basis; the wider range of both local and systemic therapeutic options, and the potential for earlier diagnosis through increased mammographic breast screening leading to a higher likelihood of a favorable outcome. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology provides a highly visual presentation of the major problems and questions that a pathologist is likely to encounter in the evaluation of common and uncommon breast diseases. Coverage includes needle core biopsy interpretation, diagnosis of precursor lesions, early stage disease, and recognition of neoplastic mimics and other misleading variants. In addition, this book emphasizes particularly difficult areas including the use of newer immunohistochemical markers. Throughout, the emphasis is on an easily accessible presentation with tables and lists of key points summarizing major findings and numerous high-quality images supporting the text. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology will be a valuable reference for every pathologist who deals with the diagnosis of breast diseases. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology Features: Each chapter authored by recognized expert in the area Hundreds of high-quality images Tables and key points in each chapter summarize the most important findings Coverage based on addressing in detail the real-world diagnostic problems the pathologist will face in daily practice

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.

This book presents the basic concepts for understanding and practicing breast pathology in routine practice. It explains how to tackle the diagnosis, emphasizing diagnostic clues for each entity as well as pitfalls and mimickers. Each chapter has concise, relevant text illustrated by numerous high-quality pictures highlighting the pearls and challenges in the diagnosis of breast lesions. Experts from around the world describe common and rarer conditions affecting the breast. Histology, immunohistochemistry, cytology, radiology and key morphologic criteria are covered. The book includes a chapter dedicated to breast normal histology, which is very important for understanding breast pathology, and a separate chapter for breast radiology, which is essential in understanding and diagnosing the breast lesions especially in a multidisciplinary team. Also, there is a chapter with the latest TNM staging system as well as the recently revised World Health Organization classification of breast tumors. Since in many breast units the cytology is still used to diagnose breast lesions there is a chapter dedicated to this technique. This book is aimed at trainees and practicing pathologists in surgical pathology, particularly those with an interest in breast pathology and those tackling the daily sign-out.

Book Description :

This book utilizes a uniform approach to provide a framework for the diagnosis of mesenchymal tumors of the breast while highlighting their mimics. Emphasis is placed on a practical approach to the morphologic interpretation and useful ancillary tests while exploring the differential diagnoses in depth. Given the overall low incidence of mesenchymal lesions of the breast along with their mimics, surgical pathologists are not consistently exposed to these spindle cell lesions. Compounding this problem is the broad differential that these lesions engender, with entities ranging from reactive/reparative lesions to poorly differentiated spindle cell malignancies. Furthering the challenge, the diagnoses may be complicated by fixation issues, sampling method, small sample size, lack of clinical history and prior treatment effects. The goal of this book is to introduce readers to the spectrum of these lesions while providing a systematic approach that helps establish accurate diagnoses that in turn drive appropriate clinical follow up and treatment. Chapters cover the spectrum of benign and malignant mesenchymal tumors and their mimics that are found in the breast in an easy to read format with richly detailed images to aid in diagnoses. The text also discusses practical components to aid in establishing and evaluating the differential diagnosis. Given how morphologically and clinically diverse these lesions are, Mesenchymal Tumors of the Breast and Their Mimics provides a construct for integrating the varied components that go into establishing a diagnosis for this challenging aspect of breast pathology.
