Overview

For over 40 years Scheuer’s Liver Biopsy Interpretation has been an invaluable resource for the pathologist in practice and in training in helping to solve diagnostic problems at the microscope. Lavishly illustrated in full color throughout it covers all aspects of liver pathology from the normal, the hepatidities, childhood disease and neoplasms. Copious technical tips and diagnostic 'pearls' reflect the extensive experience and insight of the late Peter Scheuer and Jay Lefkowitch.. Throughout the text histopathologic features are correlated with clinical features to provide a practical account of how pathology impacts the diagnosis and management of liver disease.

  • Well written, complete and concise quick reference.Helps the practicing and trainee pathologist solve diagnostic problems at the mircroscope.
  • High quality color images complement the text throughout.Provides the user with a complete visual guide to each entity and assists in the recognition and diagnosis of any tissue sample under the microscope.
  • Practical tips and “hands on” advice from two of the world’s leading experts in liver pathology. Provides the trainee and general surgical pathologist with time saving diagnostic clues when dealing with difficult specimens.
  • Glossary of frequently used terms and descriptions used in the pathology report contained at the end of the book. Useful quick reference for trainee pathologists and clinical hepatologists who may be unfamiliar with many of the terms and descriptions. Will assist in the writing and reading of a pathology report.
  • A selection of a few general reading references at the end of each chapter.Directs the trainee or practitioner to the most relevant and authoritative sources of further information and study.
  • A brand new chapter: "Practical Principles in Biopsy Assessment". Focus is on interpretation rather than a mere listing of pathological changes. The initial overview of the biopsy specimen provides critical clues to diagnosis and a highly illustrated guide to ddx will be of enormous help in avoiding diagnostic errors.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erin E Quist, MD (University of Nebraska Medical Center)
Description: This update of a 2010 edition features new images, updated descriptions, and the latest references covering the full spectrum of non-neoplastic and neoplastic liver pathology.
Purpose: It is intended as a practical guidebook as well as a quick reference on the full spectrum of hepatic pathology and histological diagnosis. It also can be used as a nice review for studying and board preparation.
Audience: The book fulfills the needs of practicing pathologists (general or specialized) with easily accessible information for quick reference and differential diagnosis during sign out. It also nicely serves pathology residents and fellows in training with easy-to-review charts and images highlighting key features of the diagnosis.
Features: The book is organized into chapters by broad topics and further subdivided by the differential diagnoses within each topic. Each diagnostic entity contains a table with key diagnostic features for easy review during sign out or studying. The book also covers ancillary topics such as biopsy assessment, laboratory techniques, normal liver histology, and transplantation. Additional features include large, high quality photomicrographs and detailed annotations accompanying each image. Several detailed schematics also appear throughout the book.
Assessment: This is an outstanding book for general or gastrointestinal pathologists and pathologists in training. Because of its ease of use, concise tables for quick reference, and outstanding images with detailed annotations, it makes for a great resource during sign out. Furthermore, the explanatory text and images are a great study aid for residents and fellows in training and preparing for in-service exams and boards. It nicely highlights the histological features of each entity and elaborates on the differential diagnostic considerations, most of which are reemphasized by side-by-side photomicrographs. In sum, this is a highly recommended update of a tried-and-true liver diagnostic tool for any level of trained or specialized anatomic pathologist.
