This is an impressively complete textbook on the diagnosis and study of all hepatobiliary disease. Updated from the 2007 edition, this edition retains all the qualities that earned the book the designation as the gold standard by which all other liver pathology textbooks are judged. Keeping up with the developments in liver disease, there are innumerable updates to this edition, including noninvasive imaging studies, the interpretation of drug-induced liver injury, tumor precursor lesions, subtyping hepatic adenomas, expansion of the discussion of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and the interpretation of different patterns of fibrosis. Contributing to its perfection, this book may be the most aesthetically pleasing medical textbook ever produced…It is not just essential to diagnose and confidently interpret liver samples, but, more importantly, it enhances one's understanding of complicated liver disease. Truly a work of art, this beautifully illustrated book is nothing but pure joy to read and consult.
