Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tammy M. Battaglia, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a concise introduction to liver pathology as well as an excellent bench side quick reference. This is the sixth edition since the book was first published in 1968.
Purpose: The editors seek to write a condensed text useful for "solving diagnostic problems at the microscope" as well as providing a concise introduction to liver disease. Liver biopsy interpretation is a difficult field for the general pathologist, making a brief but complete text a valuable resource. The author easily fulfills his objectives.
Audience: The book is intended to be used by pathologists, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, residents, and even by medical students as an introduction to liver disease. I find the book appropriate on all accounts. With several highly praised editions already published, the authors are more than credible with Professor Dame Sheila Sherlock referring to the text as the "biopsy bible."
Features: This book covers all aspects of liver biopsy pathology from normal, the hepatidities, childhood disease, and neoplasms. A new chapter in this edition discusses cytopathology of the liver. The authors have also added very useful "General Reading" references following each chapter to assist readers seeking additional information about covered topics. The glossary is a useful quick reference. All photos and tables are well chosen to illustrate and complement the written text.
Assessment: This is an excellent, well-written, complete, and concise quick reference worthy of being deemed the "liver biopsy bible." In this changing field, a new edition is justified and the additions of diagnostic cytopathology and general reading references make it a welcome update. This would be a useful addition to the libraries of both pathologists and clinicians in practice and training.
