Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues Book Review:

This is the third volume in the new World Health Organization series on histological and genetic typing of tumours. Tumours of the haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues are covered. This was a collaborative project of the European Association for Haematolpathology and the Society for Haematopathology and others. The WHO classification is based on the principles defined in the Revised European-American Classification of Lymphoid Neoplasms (REAL) classification. Over 50 pathologists from around the world were involved in the project and proponents of all major lymphoma and leukaemia classifications have agreed to accept the WHO as the standard classification of haematological malignancies. So this classification represents the first true world wide concensus of haematologic malignancies. Colour photographs, magnetic resonance and ultrasound images and CT scans are included.

Diagnostic Gynecologic and Obstetric Pathology Book Review:

In covering the topic of gynecologic and obstetric pathology, this book attempts to carve out its own niche midway between an atlas and a traditional textbook. The gross and microscopic images in this atlas are presented exclusively in color, and are supplemented by pertinent clinical information and discussions of differential diagnostic considerations. When deemed appropriate, images of immunohistochemical and special stains are included. To further enhance their visual appeal and the overall learning experience, many images in this book are presented with annotations and/or in composite form, and selected images have been enlarged. This image-intensive textbook also includes numerous Pap smear images and cytologic-histologic correlations. In addition to coverage of pathology of the organs of the female genital tract, brief overviews of the normal histology of these sites are provided as necessary background information. Separate chapters are also devoted to placental and peritoneal pathology. There is an emphasis on diagnostic-related issues pertaining to common lesions and their variants, although classic forms of rare lesions are also presented. In selected instances, recommendations on the processing of gross pathology specimens, discussions regarding the optimal approach for intraoperative consultations, and recommendations on the phrasing of key portions of pathology reports are provided. The 10 chapters of this book are organized by site, and the beginning of each chapter lists the entities discussed and their corresponding page numbers.

Cervical Cancer: Contemporary Management Book Review:

Cervical Cancer: Contemporary Management is indeed a state-of-the-art textbook on cervix cancer. The contents are organized into 8 sections and 33 chapters with the latter consistently and sequentially structured with an initial outline, introduction, descriptive but focused narrative complemented by quality figures, diagrams, tables and photographs and supported by contemporary references affording ease of access to appropriate resource information. This may be the only book of its kind comprehensively addressing all aspects of cervical cancer beginning with screening, diagnosis and management of pre-invasive disease which includes screening in low resource countries, recent advances in screening technology, HPV carcinogenesis, molecular markers and of course primary prevention with HPV vaccination. Staging protocols, imaging techniques and sentinel node evaluation have been discussed in detail. Surgical management of cervical cancer is complete in all respects. All surgical techniques ranging from radical trachelectomy, radical abdominal hysterectomy, laparoscopic nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy, radical vaginal hysterectomy and the complications of surgery are described in detail. Emphasis in many chapters is on nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy which is known to reduce bladder, rectal and sexual dysfunction postoperatively. Postradiation hysterectomy and pelvic exenterations have been extensively covered. Renowned national and international surgeons have contributed well-written chapters which speak for their experience and expertise. Likewise, the radiation arm of cancer cervix therapy is extensive and ranges from radiation therapy: principles and techniques, chemoradiation, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, management of recurrent disease by both chemotherapy and radiation and interstitial brachytherapy. Image-guided techniques and treatment planning have been described wherever appropriate. This book is valuable and finds itself on the bookshelves of all those who practice gynecologic oncology, postgraduate students and fellows specializing in this field.
