Overview

Gastrointestinal mucosal biopsies are an active part of the pathologist’s day and have increased in the past few years as endoscopic screening has become more commonplace. This new full-color Second Edition of Biopsy Interpretation of the Gastrointestinal Tract Mucosa has been expanded into two concise, comprehensive volumes to offer more complete coverage of both non-neoplastic and neoplastic entities. Like the other books in the Biopsy Interpretation Series, these volumes are practical references for pathologists to use when making diagnostic decisions based on biopsy specimens.

Volume 1 of this Second Edition focuses on interpretation of non-neoplastic gastrointestinal mucosal biopsies. Coverage is geared to daily practice and includes mucosal biopsies from the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus. A companion website will include all of the 300 print illustrations plus an additional 750 e-figures.

Volume 2 will focus on neoplastic biopsies and will publish in March 2012.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sapna Amin, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: In this update to a 2005 book, the authors briefly review normal gastrointestinal tract histology, then concisely covers non-neoplastic conditions which may be encountered on biopsy specimens from the GI tract. In addition to the excellent color photographs in the book, supplementary figures are available on a companion website. This book is an update to the first edition, published in 2005.
Purpose: This is a concise and practical resource for pathologists to use during their daily sign-out. The authors provide a systematic approach to the interpretation of GI tract biopsies and outline the diagnostic criteria necessary for commonly encountered diagnoses.
Audience: Dr. Montgomery, an expert on esophageal pathology, has succeeding in writing a book that will serve as a reference for both pathology residents and more seasoned practicing pathologists.
Features: The book is organized into five chapters by location within the GI tract. It is the first of a two-volume set, and it really must be used in conjunction with its counterpart, which covers the neoplastic GI tract mucosa.
Assessment: This book is very useful in the interpretation of GI tract biopsies. While this update has expanded on the material presented in the first edition, it is now split into two volumes. Although some may prefer having two smaller books, others may prefer to have one book be their one-stop reference.
