This book provides a detailed update on all aspects of fine-needle aspiration cytology of breast lesions. It will serve readers as an up-to-date reference and atlas on both new entities in breast pathology, including borderline lesions such as flat epithelial atypia, and the classic benign and malignant lesions. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the characteristic diagnostic features as well as the common pitfalls faced by cytologists. As cytologic features can be highly variable, corresponding cytology and histology images are displayed together, enabling readers to gain a good understanding of the morphologic features of various lesions. Core-needle biopsy and fine-needle aspiration cytology are compared in depth, with attention to their relative strengths and weaknesses and indications. In addition, the impact of molecular classification of breast cancers on cytologic diagnosis is explored, and the use of molecular techniques in diagnostic cytology is discussed.
Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the breast, although introduced in
the 1930, became popular in the 1970s. As with many other techniques in
medicine, it started slowly but gained greater acceptance when European
investigators reported large series of breast FNAs proving the technique to be
useful and accurate. Since then, the technique has gained acceptance throughout the world, although more recently a decline in the utilization of FNAC for
some screen-detected lesions and greater reliance on core needle biopsy have
taken place.
This book entitled Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology of the Breast incorporates state-of-the-art knowledge in the fi eld, and the wealth of information
was contributed by Dr. Gary Tse, Dr. Puay Hoon Tan, and Dr. Fernando
Chapters 1 and 2 cover anatomy and physiology of the breast and basic
breast pathology. Chapter 3 describes the aspiration techniques emphasizing
the aspiration procedure, reporting of results and diagnostic accuracy. Liquidbased cytology and cell block preparations are presented in Chap. 4. The various diagnostic entities are covered in Chaps. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13.
These chapters provide a concise and practical approach to challenges cytologists face in daily practice, with cyto/histologic correlation, differential diagnosis, and management of results.
Immunocytochemistry and molecular techniques, very important parts of
current cytopathology practice, are described in detail in Chaps. 14 and 15.
Color photomicrographs provide excellent visual images of a variety of
lesions throughout the book.
Comparison between FNAC and core biopsy is presented in Chap. 16, and
the authors emphasize that when dealing with non-palpable screen-detected
lesion, needle biopsies excel over FNAC as more material and better retrieval
of calci fi cations are achieved.
Let us enjoy this impressive textbook and marvel at the beauty of the illustrations, a book that presents in a lucid fashion the current knowledge in
breast FNAC.
