This is the definitive reference work on the histopathology of disease affecting the liver. No other work provides such a detailed discussion of the subjects or such ample color illustrations of the diseases and their variations. The book consists of two volumes: text and photomicrographs. Volume I features 27 chapters detailing the techniques of liver biopsy; the production of microscopic slides; detailed discussions of the diseases of the liver; AIDS; and liver transplantation. Volume II presents more than 1100 corresponding color photomicrographs, illustrating the histologic abnormalities seen in liver disorders. These remarkable color plates are presented in a large format (4 per page), each with a detailed description of their histologic features. Expertly written and meticulously organized, this will be an invaluable sourcebook for hepatologists, gastroenterologists, and pathologists. The book provides a useful description and analysis of the cellular and tissue patterns of disease in the liver as seen through the microscope.Klatskin, Gerald is the author of 'Histopathology of the Liver' with ISBN 9780195043938 and ISBN 0195043936.
