Description:

Pathology of Pediatric Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease provides the pediatric pathologist, the GI or general pathologist, and the pediatric gastroenterologist with the most complete and current reference on the subject. With an emphasis on clinical-pathological correlation, the book includes in-depth discussions on disorders and issues that are frequently encountered but for which up-to-date information is often not readily available, as well as infrequent disorders unique or specific to children that are not covered in standard texts. Among the topics considered are malabsorption and motility disorders, immunodeficiencies, including AIDS, developmental malformations, food allergies, cystic diseases of the liver, hepatic tumors, and esophageal and pancreatic disorders. Many new illustrations and electron micrographs are included in this edition, and the high-quality endoscopic and radiographic images permit ready correlation with the pathologic principles under discussion.

Pediatric gastrointestinal and liver biopsies account for a significant portion of the specimens examined by a pathology laboratory. The increasingly widespread use of endoscopic procedures in children, the improved sophistication of medical imaging techniques, and the exciting expansion of knowledge in genetic medicine have all led to new advances and opportunities in pediatric hepatogastroenterology and pathology.

Pathology of Pediatric Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease provides the pediatric pathologist, the GI or general pathologist, and the pediatric gastroenterologist with the most complete and current reference on the subject. With an emphasis on clinical-pathological correlation, the book includes in-depth discussions on disorders and issues that are frequently encountered but for which up-to-date information is often not readily available, as well as infrequent disorders unique or specific to children that are not covered in standard texts. Significant revision has been undertaken since the first edition, with the inclusion of many new illustrations and electron micrographs. Among the topics covered are malabsorption and motility disorders, immunodeficiencies, including HIV, developmental malformations, food allergies, cystic diseases of the liver, hepatic tumors, and esophageal and pancreatic disorders. The book is richly illustrated, with many figures in color, and the high-quality endoscopic and radiographic images permit ready correlation with the pathologic principles under discussion.

User’s Review:

“This is a worthy addition to the armamentarium of gastrointestinal and liver pathology books. It can be useful to both practicing pathologists and trainees who might encounter pediatric gastrointestinal and/or liver specimens … . The book has many excellent quality images, well organized tables, beautiful illustrations, and high quality discussions of a wide range of conditions.” (Deepthi S. Rao, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2015)

As a practicing pediatric pathologist who sees a fair amount of gastrointestinal pathology, there is no better reference for pediatric specific GI pathology. The pictures are nice, the tables are excellent and the authors are well known in our community for their relative GI expertise. The book is a little aged, with respect to certain modern diagnostics for various genetically associated disease, but like a fine wine, the book ages well.

I would say this is a must have for your office library if you see any amount of pediatric GI biopsies, liver or such.
