The task of updating the classification was given to the Classification and Nomenclature Committee of the International Society of Gynecological Pathologists and its four subcommittees. This classification reflects the present state of knowledge and modifications are almost certain to be needed as experience accumulates. Since many of the tumours and tumour-like conditions in the classification occur in several sites in the female genital tract, cross-referencing from one site to another has been done in illustrating these lesions.
"Needless to say, the illustrations are of high quality and very informative with showing the essential histological characteristics in detail. ... an indispensable aid for all who are confronted with these tumors and want to use an internationally accepted terminology, hence it may be recommended both to pathologists and gynecologists."
