About this book

In recent years the endometrial proliferations that are precursors of endo­ metrial carcinoma as well as lesions that mimic them, i. e. , various forms of metaplasia, have been intensively investigated. The histologic features that distinguish the noninvasive precursor lesions from the biologically significant low­ grade endometrial carcinomas are now well characterized. In addition, specific histologic types of endometrial carcinoma associated with favorable and unfa­ vorable outcomes have been described and their behavior studied. The chapter in the previous edition entitled "Endometrial Neoplasia" has therefore been divided into two chapters, "Endometrial Hyperplasia and Metaplasia" and "Endometrial Carcinoma. " A new chapter entitled "Endometriosis, Lesions of the Secondary Mullerian System, and Pelvic Mesothelial Proliferations" is a unique contribution that presents an in-depth review of endometriosis and develops the concept of the peritoneum as a modified "mullerian-derived organ. " This is useful to explain the presence of endometriosis and mullerian-related metaplasias in remote sites throughout the abdomen as well as multifocal extraovarian neopla­ sia in the absence of an ovarian tumor. Clinicopathological studies of the common epithelial, sex cord-stromal, and germ cell tumors of the ovary in the last ten years have greatly influenced their diagnosis and management. The chapter entitled "Sex Cord-Stromal, Steroid Cell, and Other Ovarian Tumors with Endocrine, Paraendocrine, and Paraneoplastic Manifestations" not only summarizes our current under­ standing of functioning tumors but also describes a variety of ovarian neo­ plasms associated with paraendocrine and paraneoplastic disorders.
