Biopsy Interpretation of the Liver is a practical source of information to understand the diseases of the liver, with particular emphasis on the histopathology of those diseases. The book offers clear guidelines for the pathologist to recognize and diagnose a full spectrum of liver disorders. It progresses from the basics—including technical considerations, liver anatomy, and examination methods—then provides essential guidelines for recognizing and assessing specific hepatic conditions. In the completely updated Second Edition, the authors updated the content on transplantation pathology and provided new chapters on immunopathology and molecular pathology of liver diseases.

A companion Website will provide the fully searchable text, over 700 additional full-color images of common and rare entities, and a test bank that is ideal for board exam preparation.
