Liver Pathology covers the key entities and diagnoses that pathologists see in daily practice, focusing on the salient H&E histopathology of each entity with concise descriptions of clinical features, differential diagnosis, and references for further study. It provides the opportunity for correlation with clinical data and radiologic and laboratory findings that are essential to correct diagnosis of non-neoplastic disease and correlation with morphologic and immunohistochemical features in the case of neoplastic liver disease.
The book presents information in a bulleted format with H&E illustrations to match histopathologic criteria, and summarizes helpful ancillary tests such as appropriate immunohistochemical panels. It provides a synopsis of all common liver entities and covers non-neoplastic conditions, including description of infectious processes, autoimmune and metabolic disorders, neonatal and pediatric conditions, drug-induced liver injury and liver allograft pathology. Coverage of neoplastic disease includes a selection of the most commonly seen malignancies including metastatic carcinoma. The book serves as a handy summary and quick reference guide for pathology residents and a “portable refresher course” or MOC review tool for the more experienced pathologist.
