Summary This heavily revised second edition in the Essentials of Diagnostic Gynecological Pathology series covers the anatomy, development, histology and normal function of the ovary. Detailed descriptions of non-neoplastic disorders of the ovary; surgery and medical management of ovarian cancer; and the use of imaging, frozen sections and cytology in ovarian pathology is discussed. The work also describes specific disorders of the ovary, fallopian tube and peritoneum. New chapters cover the latest technologies in relevant imaging techniques along with the application of molecular techniques in diagnostic and management practices. Pathology of the Ovary, Fallopian Tube and Peritoneum has been written to be useful diagnostically to general as well as specialist gynecological histopathologists and pathologists in training.
