About this book

Pathology of the Pancreas: A Practical Approach covers all the diagnostic entities in adult pancreatic pathology, providing extensive illustrations and tables to assist the pathologist at the time of diagnostic reporting of histological and cytological specimens. Potential pitfalls and mimics in pancreatic pathology are highlighted and illustrated, and guidance is provided regarding how to recognize and avoid them.

Pathology of the Pancreas: A Practical Approach enables the pathologist to recognize the various pathological entities and provide the key information in their pathology reports, which is necessary for the individual patient’s further management. It is based on the most recent diagnostic algorithms, international consensus guidelines, and systems for disease classification, staging and grading. Clinical information is also included, where it is important for the multidisciplinary team management discussion.

Pathology of the Pancreas: A Practical Approach is a bench book for everyday use beside the microscope and provides the diagnostic pathologist with a comprehensive, well-illustrated and extensively cross-referenced approach to pancreatic pathology.

Reviews

“The book is well organised, with clear chapter headings and a good index. The text is well written and well edited, making it easy both to read large sections in one sitting without needing to reread, and to dip in and out of the text to find answers to specific queries. … All the illustrations are in colour and are of excellent quality. … highly recommended, both as a study aid and as a day-to-day reference for practising pathologists.” (Eve Fryer, The Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists, Issue 170, April, 2015)
