This small volume is unique in that it presents an up-to-date endocrine interpretation of ovarian pathology. The authors are cognizant of the ambisexual nature of the origin of some tumors and also of the ambisexual action of some of the steroid hormones. Their discussion of the non-neoplastic abnormalities, such as hyperthecosis and stromal hyperplasia, is of special interest.
The text is well written and well organized. The illustrations are excellent. Each chapter is documented by a well-chosen bibliography.
