About this book

The liver is a complex organ due to its unique microscopic structure, intricate metabolic functions and susceptibility to a wide variety of insults, manifesting in countless histological  patterns.  Atlas of Liver Pathology considers both changes seen in medical liver biopsies as well as lesional biopsies when the specimen has been taken from a mass. The book starts by reviewing normal structure and its variants and the optimal approaches for the preparation of histological sections for diagnostic liver pathology. The following chapters are dedicated to developmental, metabolic, infectious, drug related, autoimmune, biliary, vascular and neoplastic disorders. Two sections on liver pathology in pregnancy and transplantation conclude the work. Macroscopic illustrations are included where appropriate. All photographs are complemented by legends describing the picture and providing relevant related information.

Authored by nationally and internationally recognized pathologists, Atlas of Liver Pathology is a valuable resource that serves as a quick reference guide for the diagnosis of usual and unusual diseases.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book focuses on pictures of normal liver histology and the most common liver diseases. … It is intended for use by students, residents, and general pathologists in the interpretation of liver biopsy histology. … The best part of the book is that it is mostly pictures with short descriptions that are detailed enough to be very helpful and provide a differential/mimickers of the entity shown. … The pictures are clear, numerous, and excellent examples of the liver histopathology.” (Hana Albrecht, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)
