Atlas of liver pathology
Needle biopsy of the liver is now an accepted procedure in most large hospitals, and surgeons and laparoscopists are more likely to biopsy the liver under direct vision than in the past. Consequently, increasing demands are being made on pathologists for rapid diagnosis. This full colour atlas provides a practical guide to the histopathological diagnosis of liver disorders, with particular emphasis on clinicopathological correlation and the need for the pathologist to be in full possession of all the available clinical information. Although containing over 350 colour illustrations, the book is more than just an atlas and each section includes a brief description of the main clinical and pathological features of the subject under discussion. For this second edition, many chapters have been rewritten - e.g. on viral hepatitis - and many new illustrations added. The book is intended for the practising and trainee pathologist and the clinician who performs liver biopsies, but will also be of value to postgraduates, residents and students in other branches of medicine.
