The incidence of endometrial adenocarcinoma, the most common malignant tumor of the female genital tract in developed countries, has increased over recent years. A variety of collection techniques are available to obtain cytologic or histopathologic samples for its diagnosis but their interpretation can be difficult without proper collection and preparation. However, this monograph, written by internationally recognized experts, is a most valuable educational resource for the pathologist and cytopathologist in the techniques of endometrial sampling and diagnosis. The chapters are comprehensive and logically organized, covering the epidemiology and pathogenesis of endometrial adenocarcinoma, endometrial sampling techniques and the spectrum of cytomorphologic appearance from benign through hyperplasia to adenocarcinoma of the endometrium. A separate chapter covers non-epithelial uterine malignancies. Throughout the monograph, inclusion of both cytologic and H&E histologic images allows cytohistologic correlation of lesions. In summary, this endometrial handbook seeks to clarify a difficult area of cytodiagnosis and will become an important reference text for cytopathologists, pathologists and cytotechnologists.

Dr.  Matias  Jiménez-Ayala,  senior  author  of  the  monograph, is an internationally recognized cytopathologist with
over  90  publications  in  the  field.  In  1993,  he  received  the Maurice  Goldblatt  award  for  his  lifetime  contributions  to cytology. He is past president of the International Academy of  Cytology,  Past  President  and  Honorary  President  of  the Spanish Society of Cytology and an honorary member of the Argentine,  Brazilian,  Chilean,  Mexican,  and  Uruguayan Societies  of  Cytology,  Latin  America,  as  well  as  the Portuguese  Society  of  Cytology.  For  this  monograph,  Dr. Jiménez-Ayala  has  drawn  on  his  35  years  of  experience  in endometrial sampling and endometrial cytopathology. He is ably  accompanied  in  this  effort  by  his  daughter  Beatriz Jiménez-Ayala, an accomplished cytopathologist in her own right. Drs. Enrique Iglesias and Maria Rios Vallejo have contributed  an  informative  chapter  on  vaginal  ultrasound  and hysteroscopy for endometrial assessment.
The  chapters  are  comprehensive  and  logically  organized,covering  the  epidemiology  and  pathogenesis  of  endometrial adenocarcinoma,  endometrial  sampling  techniques  and  the spectrum of cytomorphologic appearance from benign through hyperplasia to adenocarcinoma of the endometrium. A separate chapter covers non-epithelial uterine malignancies. Throughout the monograph, inclusion of both cytologic and H&E histologic images allows cytohistologic correlation of lesions. In summary, this is a welcome addition to Karger’s series of Monographs in Clinical Cytology. This contribution will bring  clarity  to  a  difficult  area  of  cytodiagnosis  and  will become  an  important  reference  text  on  the  shelves  of cytopathology laboratories
