Carefully chosen from among almost 1000 autopsies performed at large teaching hospitals in a 35-year career in anatomic pathology, are 23 autopsies that represent classically important or interesting diseases. The cases have high quality color gross, microscopic, and radiographic images, discussions of the pathologic findings, key pathophysiologic features, associated stories from medical history and relevant medical laboratory science. They have been organized using the mnemonic VINDICATE to help the reader relate the findings to the major classes of disease. All the discussions are referenced and have questions for further study. This text serves as a companion for the study of pathology and pathophysiology at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The second edition adds Dr. Chohan as coauthor and includes modern radiographic findings on many of the cases.

Series: Innovative Pathology Press Survival Guide
Liver pathology requires patience and attention to detail. While a thorough microscopic examination is necessary, it is not enough, and evaluation of biopsies in a vacuum can be dangerous. Knowledge of the clinical picture, including laboratory and imaging studies, is imperative. Without such correlation, pathologists cannot issue a clinically useful report to guide a patient’s diagnosis and treatment plan. With this survival guide to liver biopsies, we aim to provide the reader with a solid, basic foundation of liver pathology. Our goal is to reduce the pervasive initial anxiety and guide the readers into reaching accurate diagnoses and building on this basic knowledge. Though diagnostic struggles are common, they often turn into satisfying rewards each time we are able to piece together the puzzle. This book will pave the way to practice liver pathology.
