‘…an elegant book that is well organized with 168 good quality color images. The 12 chapters have a natural progression from techniques and classification of glandular lesions to benign and malignant lesions of the vagina, cervix, endocervix, endometrium, and ovary. There are additional chapters that highlight less frequent problems related to the vulva and fallopian tube, as well as a chapter dedicated to metastases. The final chapter discusses ancillary techniques, in particular immunochemical and molecular testing for HPV.
This 110-page monograph is not meant to be an exhaustive nor a comprehensive review of the current literature, but a distillation of the important concepts and criteria that help focus both novice and experienced cytopathologists on this difficult area of gynecologic cytopathology. The authors have carefully selected their references and balanced the "classics" with more recent citations….
In summary, I recommend this monograph as a worthwhile additon to any cytology library.’

A color atlas for cytopathologists
This outstanding monograph presents a detailed description of cytopathological lesions of the female genital tract. Twelve international experts in the cytopathology of glandular lesions cover the complete spectrum of this challenging subject.
Genital glandular lesions, both benign and malignant, are an appealing field of cytopathology. Malignant lesions of the endocervix and endometrium are becoming more common all over the world, compared to squamous cell carcinoma. In situ and invasive endocervical adenocarcinoma, endometrial adenocarcinoma and endometrial hyperplasias are presented in this book. Additionally ovarian lesions focusing data obtained from detailed intraoperative studies and other areas of the genital tract, such as the vulva and fallopian tube, which are less known and thus have seen fewer publications, are also shown. The impact of the Bethesda System, as well as basic and ancillary techniques in the study of glandular lesions complete the monograph.
This book will be of great use to cytopathologists, pathologists and cytotechnologists and to students of these specialities as it deals with the most common areas of their daily work.
