Essentials of Diagnostic Gynecological Pathology Pathology of the Cervix Ebook PDF download
Essentials of Diagnostic Gynecological Pathology Pathology of the Cervix Ebook PDF download It is a great privilege to edit this volume on cervical pathology as part of the
series of books on gynecological pathology. The structure of the book is similar to other volumes in the series, beginning with a discussion of normal
structure, in this case focusing particularly on the cervical transformation zone and the putative cells of origin of neoplastic cervical lesions. Cervical disease is dominated by the effects of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and the content of the book reflects this, with both a specific chapter on HPV and discussion of HPV and its relationship to cervical lesions in several of the other chapters.
Chapters on cervical screening and the management of cervical cancer are followed by sequential treatment of benign, preinvasive, and invasive squamous and glandular lesions of the cervix, both HPV- and non-HPV-related. The final chapters focus on mesenchymal and mixed
tumors, and other neoplasms including neuroendocrine tumors.
Appendices outlining specimen handling, tumor staging, and the use of frozen section diagnosis are also included.
I am extremely grateful to the chapter contributors for their excellent con-
tributions. Thanks go also to the publishers, who have seen the project through to completion. Finally, I would like to thank the series editors for asking me to edit this volume, which I hope will be of value to those who read it.
