Helps you correctly identify the full range of pathologic alterations encountered in breast tissue.

The intuitive organization approaches diagnosis the way many readers do, grouping lesions according to their histologic patterns and then pointing out the characteristics that distinguish one type of lesion from another. The authors emphasize the role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems wherever appropriate, explain the clinical significance of the various diagnoses and their impact on patient management, highlighting key clinical and management points throughout – providing the broad context readers need to generate the most accurate pathology reports for every patient.

Key features:
- Comprehensive updates reflect the most recent World Health Organization nomenclature and diagnostic criteria, the role of adjunctive studies (including the uses and limitations of newer immunohistochemical markers), evaluation of specimens from patients treated with neoadjuvant systemic therapy, new guidelines for lumpectomy margin evaluation, advances in molecular pathology and genetics, and other crucial developments in the field.
- Navigate controversies with discussions of unresolved issues in diagnostic interpretation, and apply pragmatic, experience-based recommendations in areas where evidence-based criteria are lacking.
- Make better-informed decisions about core needle biopsy interpretation through expanded coverage of the role and pitfalls of this technique.
- Compare your cases to hundreds of carefully prepared, high-quality photomicrographs, many new to this edition.
- Access key diagnostic features and differential diagnostic considerations at a glance with dozens of helpful tables, and find the answers you need quickly thanks to a concise, bulleted format.
