About this book
GVHD is the major cause of non-relapse morbidity and mortality after hemopoietic cell transplantation. This text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of the pathology of GVHD for clinicians, pathologists and researchers with an interest in GVHD. The book covers the histologic spectrum of GVHD, clinicopathologic features, pathobiology, grading, risk factors affecting outcome, and differential diagnosis. It profiles the new NIH consensus and international guidelines for diagnosing GVHD. The text chapters are based on actual patient cases covering the gamut of acute and chronic GVHD and associated complications. The discussion initiated teaching points and key histologic points make the reading and teaching more interactive while providing a stimulating discussion of difficult differentials. The chapters are richly illustrated with colored comparative gross and histologic images and include extensive references by experts in the fields including the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information.
Pathology of Graft vs. Host Defense: A Case Based Teaching Guide serves as a useful resource for physicians and researchers interested in this challenging disease. It also provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that helps guide patient management and stimulates investigative efforts.
