Throughout this text the emphasis is on a visual presentation with high-quality images on the more difficult problems and questions that the pathologist is likely to have in evaluation of breast disease.
Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology has a special focus on the most difficult diagnostic problems in breast disease for the surgical pathologist: needle core biopsy interpretation, diagnosis of precursor lesions and early stage disease, recognition of neoplastic mimics and other misleading variants, and other particularly difficult areas including appropriate use of newer immunohistochemical markers, where appropriate. Prognostic questions and early staging are of special importance in the pathologist's collaboration with oncology clinicians and, increasingly, in informing patients and participating in ongoing management assessment.
