About this book
This atlas illustrates the range of breast lesions and their differential diagnoses, with pictorial correlation of gross and microscopic features. Where relevant, radiological images are incorporated. A description of normal, developmental and physiological breast morphology will serves as introduction to the main content of this atlas. Classification of tumors is based on the latest World Health Organisation Classification of Tumors of the Breast, 4th edition, 2012. As immunohistochemistry is a key adjunctive platform in the workup of breast lesions as well as used in prognostic evaluation of breast cancers, appropriate examples are interspersed. Molecular tools used in corroborating diagnoses and a discussion of therapy related changes are included.
