Derived from the authors' long-running course presented at the International Academy of Pathology, this second edition, now with color illustrations, continues the tradition of its predecessor as being the concise and complete diagnostic guide to the endometrial biopsy. The text is structured so as to present a logical approach to formulating a pathologic diagnosis from the diverse array of tissue received in the surgical pathology laboratory. Color illustrations show typical artifacts and distortion, and explain their impact on diagnostic interpretation. Each chapter includes a section summarizing the features that must be discussed in the final pathology report.

"This is a superb book for all training and practicing anatomic pathologists who are responsible for the assessment of small biopsies and curettings of the endometrium. Not only does it have excellent descriptions and imagery of a variety of benign and malignant neoplasms, it incorporates a pathophysiological assessment of the menstrual cycle. The discussion of the various terminology used for atypia is most worthwhile and helpful." (Lauren Stanoszek, Doody's Book Reviews, April 19, 2019)
