Practical Hepatic Pathology—a new volume in the new Pattern Recognition series—offers you a practical guide to diagnosing every challenging liver biopsy that you encounter in your daily practice. Dr. Romil Saxena presents diagnoses according to a pattern-based organization that guides you from a histological pattern of injury, through the appropriate work-up, around the pitfalls, and to the best diagnosis. Lavish, full-color images capture key hepatic pathology patterns of injury, pathognomonic features and common variations of all major liver diseases and hepatic neoplasms. No other single source delivers the practical, hands-on information you need to solve even the toughest diagnostic challenges in liver biopsies.

  • Recognize the basic patterns of liver injury through an algorithmic approach and establish diagnosis by a pattern-based visual index present at the beginning of the book.
  • Evaluate and interpret biopsy samples using superb, high-quality, full-color images that illustrate pathognomonic features and common variations.
  • Get comprehensive information on major adult and childhood liver diseases, hepatic neoplasms and pre-neoplastic nodules including clinical features, laboratory tests, imaging findings and differential diagnosis.
