This new edition differs from the preceding ones in that there has been extensive revision of most chapters. Recent advances in research gained by immunohistochemical, molecular biological, and cytogenetic methods are included, as far as they are applicable for daily diagnostic work. The chapter on neoplasms, in particular, has been greatly expanded in accordance with the new WHO International Histological Classification of genital tract tumors, covering all pertinent differential diagnostic aspects. The chapter on malignant lymphomas and hematopoetic neoplasms involving the endometrium is a new contribution to this edition (F. D. , Ulm). We have revised the chapter on gestational diseases, incorpor- ing recent advances in the differential diagnosis of gestational trophoblastic tumors. New discoveries and experiences in correlating structure and function in infertility and in h- mone replacement therapy of peri- and postmenopausal patients are also included. Many new microphotographs have been added to illustrate the advances in tumor research and in immunohistochemical detection methods. We have updated the list of references including recent relevant publications. To the correspondents and consultants who have contributed valuable observations and suggestions, bringing thereby to our attention omissions in the second edition, we acknowledge our cordial thanks. We thank Dr. Wolfram Klapper, Director of the L- phom Register of the University of Kiel, for case material for making the micropho- graphic illustrations of lymphomas. The staff of Springer-Verlag has earned our gratitude for their skill in preparing this new edition.

From the reviews of the third edition:
"This book takes a thorough approach to the wide variety of diagnostic entities that may be encountered in endometrial biopsies. ... This is then followed by a detailed, lucid presentation of the histological appearances of the various subtypes/variants of endometrial carcinoma, illustrated by plenty of both coloured and black-and-white photomicrographs. ... The book includes a few clinicopathological entities ... which are not mentioned in other bench books on endometrial pathology. ... a valuable addition to the currently existing bench books on endometrial pathology." (Ali Sherif, The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathology, Issue 153, January, 2011)
