This Atlas offers concrete diagnostic guidance for anatomic pathologists who are required to correctly identify cervical disease in cytology. It not only illustrates the cytomorphology of cervical specimens, but specifically presents and contrasts common problem areas that can lead to erroneous interpretation. Clearly and concisely written by leaders in the field, this volume in the series is a practical desk reference for all facets of the diagnostically challenging area of cervical cytopathology.
The Atlas contains over 500 carefully selected high-resolution color images detailing important aspects of gynecologic tract disease. Additionally, the book's images of the histopathology and characteristics of lesions provide morphologic correlations that will be of interest to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike. To provide a broader perspective, the Atlas features a special chapter on the colposcopic characteristics of surgical lesions to provide a differential diagnosis through the eyes of an experienced gynecologist. It also reviews the updated management guidelines of the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, providing a multidisciplinary approach to enhance the reader's understanding of how cytopathology, histopathology, and colposcopy together create a powerful tool for the prevention of cervical cancer.
