Review Quotes
From the reviews:"The pathologist-in-training and general pathologist will benefit from the addition of Dr Farid Monifar's Essentials of Diagnostic Breast Pathology: A Practical Approach to their personal library. The goal of this 470-page combination text-atlas is to serve as an efficient reference to both educate and update the practicing diagnostician through guiding the processing, microscopic analysis, and clinico-pathologic correlation of a wide spectrum of common and uncommon breast lesions. Monifar uses focused and captioned text describing more than 1100 full-color illustrations to aid in this challenging task." (Giovanna Crisi, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 298 (15), 2007)"This is a succinct and practical guide to diagnosis of breast disease with over 1,100 full-color illustrations demonstrating gross, histologic, cytologic, and immunohistochemical findings of common and challenging breast lesions. The text is short and precise and each disease entity is emphasized with case presentations. … a nice addition to the existing breast pathology books as it stresses specifically the practical diagnostic essentials in breast pathology. … written for practicing pathologists and pathologists in training who deal with breast pathology on a daily basis." (Fang Fan, Ph.D, MD, Doody's Review Service, March, 2008)
