About this book

Surgical Pathology of the Gastrointestinal System: Bacterial, Fungal, Viral, and Parasitic Infections provides a unique diagnostic reference text for the pathologic diagnosis of infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Written for the practicing surgical pathologist, this text combines the superior illustrations of an atlas with carefully written prose to create a useful diagnostic companion. The text is divided into four sections covering bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections of the gastrointestinal tract. The descriptive sections of each chapter are organized into short paragraphs for easy reference and include the use of tables to compare and contrast organisms and summarize differential diagnoses. Each chapter is extensively illustrated, and contains prose discussions of diagnostic features, differential diagnoses, brief clinical descriptions, and ancillary tests that help confirm the diagnosis (i.e. immunohistochemistry, special histochemical stains, and molecular diagnostic techniques).  Surgical Pathology of the Gastrointestinal System: Bacterial, Fungal, Viral, and Parasitic Infections provides pertinent clinical, diagnostic, and epidemiologic information that will be valuable to the practicing surgical pathologist.  This volume will also help surgical pathologists gain familiarity with other contributory laboratory tests that are available to help confirm diagnosis.

Reviews

From the reviews: “This is a reference for surgical pathologists on infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. … The book would be most suitable for general anatomical pathologists, as well as pathology residents. … Each chapter discusses a different species or organism with multiple morphologic, high quality pictures. … The numerous pictures in each chapter are the highlight of the book. The multiple morphologic pictures with accompanying short text provide a quick and easy to use reference for surgical pathologists.” (Catherine Lewis, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2010)
