About this book


Pediatric gastrointestinal and liver biopsies comprise a significant portion of specimens examined by the pathology laboratory. The increasingly widespread use of endoscopic procedures in children, the improved sophistication of medical imagery, as well as expanding knowledge in genetic medicine have led to new advances and opportunities in pediatric hepatogastroenterology and pathology. Pathology of Pediatric Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease will provide the pediatric pathologist, GI and general pathologist and pediatric gastroenterologist with the most current and complete reference on the pathology of pediatric GI and liver diseases. With an emphasis on clinical pathological correlation, and edited by a multi-disciplinary team of pathologists and a gastroenterologist, the book will provide in-depth discussions on topics frequently encountered and for which currrent information is not readily available. Comprised of 16 chapters following an anatomical outline, the text will cover both the GI and liver and will include discussions on:  malabsorption and motolity disorders, immunodeficiencies, including HIV, development malformations, food allergies, cystic diseases of the liver, esophageal and pancreatic disorders. Heavily illustrated with over 450 illustrations, 200 of which in full color throughout, the book will include endoscopic and radiographic images to correlate with the pathologic principles under discussion.
