Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Containing over 750 large color illustrations and a consistent format for each chapter throughout, this text will be an accessible and useful reference for pathologists, GI specialists, hepatologists, and residents. Covering all the neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders of the GI tract, each section includes clinical features, gross and microscopic features, ancillary studies, differential diagnoses, and prognostic and therapeutic considerations. Many inset boxes and tables containing fact sheets and lists of pathologic features are included, reinforcing the text and providing a rapid reference. Each chapter concludes with a selected bibliography organized by subject." SciTech Book News, December 2005

GASTROINTESTINAL AND LIVER PATHOLOGY

This book belongs to the series ‘Foundations in Diagnostic Pathology’ edited by JR Goldblum. As stated by the series Editor in the foreword ‘the goal of every book in the series is to provide essential information that any pathologist whether general or sub-specialised, in training or in practice, would find useful in the evaluation of virtually any type of specimen encountered’.

The 19 chapters of this book are actually designed to cover the ‘essentials’ of gastrointestinal, pancreatic and hepatic pathology. The main pathological entities are outlined and there are inserts (‘fact sheets’ and ‘pathological features’) which provide a very useful summary for the practicing pathologist and can be of major interest to trainees. The figures are of high quality and usually very representative (an inversion between the legends of figures 10-18 and 10-19 can be easily detected).

It is a huge task to summarise in a single volume the whole field of gastrointestinal, pancreatic and liver pathology. I have a good opinion of the book that can be useful as a first level reference for practicing pathologists but can also help the gastroenterologist to understand the process of pathological diagnosis.
