Authored by renowned expert Dr. Jay Lefkowitch and reflecting the extensive experience of the late Dr. Peter Scheuer, this practical text contains technical tips, diagnostic clues, and pearls on all aspects of liver pathology diagnosis, including acute and chronic hepatitis, biliary tract diseases, childhood disorders, and hepatic neoplasms – as well as ancillary topics such as biopsy assessment, laboratory techniques, normal liver histology, and transplantation. Throughout the text, histopathologic features are correlated with clinical features, molecular genetics, and immunohistochemistry to provide a practical account of how pathology impacts the diagnosis and management of liver disease. Covers key topics such as genomic alterations in liver tumours, diagnosis of acute liver allograft rejection, scoring systems for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and discussions of immunohistochemical features wherever relevant. Presents the latest information on next generation sequencing and drug-induced liver injury, including adverse reactions to new biologics and alternative medicines to help both the clinician and pathologist avoid diagnostic errors. Features many new illustrations, including over 300 large, full-color and fully annotated photomicrographs that illustrate a wide range of pathologic appearances and help identify each diagnostic entity under discussion. Offers coverage of cytopathology in the assessment of liver tumors to provide further clinical clues to diagnosis. Provides basic overview of major histopathologic diagnostic problems in paediatric liver biopsy, including biliary atresia and several types of progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis Provides new and updated algorithms, tables and images highlighting key features of each diagnostic entity – ideal as a concise review during sign out or for studying and board preparation.
Features new to this edition include: a separate and enlarged chapter on biopsies of the transplanted liver, now of even greater significance than when last edition appeared; rewritten sections on viral hepatitis in the light of new discoveries, especially that of hepatitis C virus plus new information on viruses A, B, C, D, and E; a revised section on nomenclature and pathology of chronic hepatitis; expanded chapter on transmission electron microscopy to include newer techniques of assessing liver specimens - such as scanning electronmicroscopy, immunoelectron microscopy, immunohistochemistry and many more; extensive use of colour histopathology throughout the book (90 colour in all); and extensive references to 1992, 1993 and some for 1994.
"Liver Pathology" will present thirty cases for discussion and illustration. The cases will be selected to show the wide range of specimens seen in liver pathology and will address some of the frequent issues in diagnosis encountered in these lesions. The goal of this unique book will be to provide detailed insight into a wealth of expert ......
This new volume of the Biopsy Interpretation Series is a practical, superbly illustrated guide to the technical and interpretive aspects of a frozen section. The focus is on use of the frozen section in intraoperative management of patients, particularly those with tumors. The authors give pathologists a thorough knowledge of the utility and limitations of a frozen section, the appropriate circumstances for doing one, the proper techniques, and the interpretation and reporting of results. The book features more than 300 full-color gross and microscopic images, with discussions of differential diagnosis. A companion Website will provide 300 additional figures, plus a test bank that is ideal for board exam preparation.
