About this title:
The subject matter of Volume 2 of this two-volume series focusses especially on rare sarcomas of the whole female genitalia. These entities include angio-sarcoma, the different lipo- and rhabdomyo-sarcoma, and newer entities like the PEComa. Furthermore, mixed mullerian tumours, such as the benign adenofibroma and the malignant adeno-sarcoma and carcino-sarcoma, are described in detail.
Volume 2 describes at length the epidemiology, aetiology, pathological anatomy, prognosis, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, imaging and comprehensive therapy of each primary, relapsed, and metastasized tumour, including surgery, chemo-, hormone- and radio- and targeted therapy. An entire chapter is devoted to the problems of fertility and pregnancy in connection with all sarcomas, variants of leiomyoma, atypical smooth muscle tumours, stromal tumours, and all mixed tumours of the female genitalia.
In addition, the book aims to identify and provide diagnostic and therapeutic guidance. The listed tumour entities also constitute a particular diagnostic challenge for pathologists that contains numerous pitfalls and difficulties. It therefore addresses gynaecologists and pathologists in both clinical and private practice, as well as surgeons and haemato-oncologists.
