Pediatric gastrointestinal and liver biopsies comprise a significant portion of specimens examined by the pathology laboratory. The increasingly widespread use of endoscopic procedures in children, the improved sophistication of medical imagery, as well as expanding knowledge in genetic medicine have led to new advances and opportunities in pediatric hepatogastroenterology and pathology. Pathology of Pediatric Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease will provide the pediatric pathologist, GI and general pathologist and pediatric gastroenterologist with the most current and complete reference on the pathology of pediatric GI and liver diseases. With an emphasis on clinical pathological correlation, and edited by a multi-disciplinary team of pathologists and a gastroenterologist, the book will provide in-depth discussions on topics frequently encountered and for which currrent information is not readily available. Comprised of 16 chapters following an anatomical outline, the text will cover both the GI and liver and will include discussions on: malabsorption and motolity disorders, immunodeficiencies, including HIV, development malformations, food allergies, cystic diseases of the liver, esophageal and pancreatic disorders. Heavily illustrated with over 450 illustrations, 200 of which in full color throughout, the book will include endoscopic and radiographic images to correlate with the pathologic principles under discussion.

Virtually all sites in the human body can host lesions that simulate neoplasms, and many of these “pseudotumors” can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis-- clinical, radiologic, and pathologic-- thus they represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection. This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the gastrointestinal tract and liver. Coverage is fully comprehensive and includes the lesions common to the entire gut, as well as lesions specific to the esophagus, stomach, intestines and vascular lesions; and the liver and biliary tree.

There have been many advances in the field of gastrointestinal pa thology which are of considerable clinical significance during the 13 years since the last publication of a volume of Current Topics in Pathology devoted to this subject. Many have arisen from the app lication of new techniques of histochemistry, immunocytochemi stry, quantitative morphometry and molecular and cell biology to gastrointestinal diseases, but some, notably the recognition of the association of Campylobaeter pylori with the commonest type of chronic gastritis, have been achieved using such long established 'routine' histological procedures that one wonders how their signifi cance had escaped recognition for so long. The topics covered in this volume have been selected because they present advances of relevance to the diagnostic clinical pathologist. However, they re present the personal selection of the editor, and are in no way exhaustive. Many other examples of progress in our understanding of the pathophysiology of gastrointestinal diseases have been omit ted, either because of the confines of space or because they have been well reviewed recently in other publications. Most of the workload of the practising gastrointestinal patholo gist involves the diagnosis and assessment either of inflammation or of neoplasia in the alimentary tract, and this is reflected in the topics presented in this book.
