This 2-volume work is a comprehensive textbook of GI pathology. The primary focus of this landmark reference is on the practical aspects of pathology; namely the pathology of biopsies and gross specimens, the clinical/pathological correlation and differential diagnoses and how these may affect patient management. The combined practical experience of these renowned authors provides valuable insight on many important areas of GI pathology. Areas in which there are no general agreements or which are controversial are dealt with openly as the authors explain how they handle these problems and why. This all-inclusive work stands alone in terms of addressing the practice of modern GI pathology by illustrating endoscopic appearances wherever relevant and by focusing on the clinical implications of patient management after discussions of pathology.
