This book provides a quick, pattern-based reference for interpreting histologic changes in non-neoplastic liver. It is designed to guide the reader based on morphologic pattern and basic clinical information. Each chapter covers a broad but identifiable pattern of pathologic liver findings (e.g., “portal inflammation” or “steatosis”) and discusses the major disease entities that manifest as such a pattern.

Pathology of Liver Diseases is a rapid reference consultation tool that uses both book and online material to present a whole range of liver disorders. The book emphasizes not only the pathology seen in biopsy and surgical material, but also the most pertinent clinical and laboratory findings including epidemiology, etiologic and pathophysiologic concepts, and the differential diagnoses. Key references appear at the end of each chapter.

Many pathologists find the interpretation of biopsies and other surgical specimens from solid organ, stem cell and bone marrow transplants challenging. Pathology of Transplantation provides a practical structured and logical approach to the diagnostic interpretation of the range of specimens from patients with solid organ, stem cell and bone marrow transplants, including the assessment of native and donor organs, with emphasis on resolution of pathological and clinico-pathological differential diagnoses including the diverse forms of rejection, recurrent and de novo diseases, drug-induced alterations, infections and other pathologies relevant to the system or tissue.

This text provides a practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist in evaluating tumors involving the liver. It comprehensively covers the histological findings and key clinical and molecular correlates of liver tumors. The focus is on material that is most relevant to the actual practice of liver pathology including those aspects that are directly relevant to the diagnosis, subtyping and prognostication of hepatic adenomas specimens, including biopsy specimens and surgical resections.

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.

Series: AFIP Tumor 4th edition
Numerous advances in our understanding of the pathology and molecular features of liver tumors have been made since the publication of the Third Series Fascicle, Tumors of the Liver and Intrahepatic Bile Ducts, nearly two decades ago. Examples of recent advances include the identification of novel entities, including their precursor lesions, the discovery of key molecular changes, including the fusion transcript between the DNAJB1 gene and the PRKACA gene in fibrolamellar carcinoma, the use of glutamine synthetase in the diagnosis of focal nodular hyperplasia, and the subtyping of hepatocellular adenomas using molecular and immunohistochemical methods. Together with the more unified classification and terminology of intrahepatic bile duct tumors and their precursors, these advances call for updated information that is presented in this volume.
