The Atlas of Liver Pathology, by Drs. Gary C. Kanel and Jacob Korula, provides the visual guidance you need to accurately diagnose all forms of liver disease. Organized by disease type, it points out major histological features, updates disease parameters with new images and diagrams, and helps you understand the clinical aspects of each disease. This text provides quick and convenient reference to virtually all of the liver disorders commonly seen today. Nine-hundred-plus high-quality, full-color images capture the gross and histological presentation of liver pathology ideal for comparison to the specimens you encounter in practice. Interpret liver specimens systematically by first considering the morphology, the differential diagnoses, and then the clinical features, including descriptions of the clinical and biologic behavior, treatment, and prognosis. Quickly and easily retrieve the information you need using a templated format that includes concise, bulleted text and abundant tables. Ensure accurate diagnoses with the help of 900+ full-color, high-quality images which capture the gross and histological presentation of liver pathology. Keep up with the latest findings on newly recognized liver diseases as well as rare disorders such as Langerhans cell histiocytosis, Leishmaniasis, Niemann-Pick disease, Lymphangioma, Pheochromocytoma, Infection-associated (reactive) hemophagocytic syndrome, and glycogen storage diseases. Find tables that cover rare diseases and disorders throughout the book. Obtain assistance with liver biopsy interpretation through greatly expanded coverage including differential diagnostic tables in a new section of the book, increased images, and more. Confidently recognize the major characteristics and distinguishing features of various diseases by examining the revised section on "Clinical and Biologic Behavior."
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.
Highly illustrated and conveniently templated for quick reference, Atlas of Liver Pathology, 4th Edition, is a useful Atlas and text for every practicing pathologist or trainee who assesses liver biopsy specimens. From cover to cover, it contains all the information needed to identify histologic features and correlate them with clinical findings, offering a clearer understanding of the clinical implications of the disease as it relates to treatment. More than 1,200 high-quality, full-color images and illustrations provide you with a complete visual guide to the vast majority of liver diseases and assist in the diagnoses of biopsy and resected liver specimens. Provides clear, templated information for each disease: Major Morphologic Features; Special Stains; Differential Diagnoses; Clinical and Biologic Behavior; and Treatment and Prognosis. Incorporates relevant data from ancillary techniques (immunohistochemistry, cytology, cytogenetics and molecular genetics), giving you the necessary tools required to master the latest breakthroughs in diagnostic technology. Incorporates the latest diagnostic biomarkers and their utility in differential diagnoses, newly described variants, and new histologic entities. Contains two new chapters on liver biopsy interpretation and autoimmune hepatitis. Features concise, bulleted text and abundant tables that cover common as well as rare diseases, differential diagnoses, and more. An eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all of the text, tables, figures and references, with the ability to search, customize your content, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud.
The liver is a complex organ due to its unique microscopic structure, intricate metabolic functions and susceptibility to a wide variety of insults, manifesting in countless histological patterns. Atlas of Liver Pathology considers both changes seen in medical liver biopsies as well as lesional biopsies when the specimen has been taken from a mass. The book starts by reviewing normal structure and its variants and the optimal approaches for the preparation of histological sections for diagnostic liver pathology. The following chapters are dedicated to developmental, metabolic, infectious, drug related, autoimmune, biliary, vascular and neoplastic disorders. Two sections on liver pathology in pregnancy and transplantation conclude the work. Macroscopic illustrations are included where appropriate. All photographs are complemented by legends describing the picture and providing relevant related information. Authored by nationally and internationally recognized pathologists, Atlas of Liver Pathology is a valuable resource that serves as a quick reference guide for the diagnosis of usual and unusual diseases.
This atlas presents 432 colour illustrations of typical microscopic and gross appearances of a wide range of liver disorders, from necropsy specimens to standard histopathological techniques, and examples of immunohistology, electron microscopy, and autoradiography.
Liver Pathology: An Atlas and Concise Guide will provide pathologists, heptologists, gastroenterologists, residents and fellows in their respective fields with an up-to-date guide to the differential diagnoses, interpretation and diagnoses of liver specimens. Liver Pathology: An Atlas and Concise Guide contains over 600 high-quality color images demonstrating the histopathologic and immunohistichemical findings supported by concise text listing the all essential information about liver diseases including definition, patient demographics, clinical signs and symptoms, laboratory findings, pathologic features (histology, immunohistochemistry, molecular studies), differential diagnosis and key references. Liver Pathology: An Atlas and Concise Guide provides the "fundamentals" of liver pathology-in a straightforward, problem-oriented presentation of key points and typical differentials based on what you are likely to see.
The Atlas of the Liver focuses on presents photomicrographs, tables and charts supplemented by concise explanations which supplement research articles, reviews and textbooks. Coverage of the causes and effects of fat deposition in the liver is expanded in this edition. A new chapter discusses nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, further emphasizing the important roles of fat in the liver. Pathology, complications, and disease management are discussed in detail.
This atlas is a problem-based practical book presenting clinical scenarios for children with liver disease. Each chapter demonstrates the clinical presentation, diagnostic pathway, therapy and outcome. Rich in illustrations of clinical pictures, tables and graphs of data, each chapter also contains pictures of radiology, histopathology and other important diagnostic information. This book outlines a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and management of pediatric liver disease and covers diseases encountered in South Asia, the Far East and the Middle East. This work will appeal to a wide readership, from trainees in hepatology and Paediatric Gastroenterology to General Paediatricians and Allied Health Professionals including Dieticians, Nurses, Transplant Co-Ordinators.
The Color Atlas of Pediatric Pathology covers the broad range of pediatric diseases that a pathologist will likely encounter and is written by well-known leaders in this field.
