This is the definitive reference work on the histopathology of disease affecting the liver. No other work provides such a detailed discussion of the subjects or such ample color illustrations of the diseases and their variations. The book consists of two volumes: text and photomicrographs. Volume I features 27 chapters detailing the techniques of liver biopsy; the production of microscopic slides; detailed discussions of the diseases of the liver; AIDS; and liver transplantation. Volume II presents more than 1100 corresponding color photomicrographs, illustrating the histologic abnormalities seen in liver disorders. These remarkable color plates are presented in a large format (4 per page), each with a detailed description of their histologic features. Expertly written and meticulously organized, this will be an invaluable sourcebook for hepatologists, gastroenterologists, and pathologists. The book provides a useful description and analysis of the cellular and tissue patterns of disease in the liver as seen through the microscope.

"In this overview of hepatology, every controversy has been identified, the prevailing view explained, weaknesses exposed, and a personal opinion rendered. The authors have given much to hepatology. Here is their latest gift."--Ian R. Wanless, M.D., Director, Canadian Liver Pathology Reference
Advance Praise "This book, which is illustrated by beautiful and well selected photomicrographs, contains an enormous amount of information on liver disease. Looking through the chapter on neoplasms...I was awed by the depth and thoroughness of the discussion. It refers to more than 400
articles that include many very recent ones. The number of photomicrographs is impressive; for hepatocellular carcinoma alone there are more than 50....Dr. Conn is to be credited for completing this opus in the manner that Dr. Klatskin had started....This book is truly unsurpassed as a textbook of
histopathology of the liver. For hepatologists it must be kept on the desk." --Kunio Okuda, M.D., Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Chiba University, School of Medicine, Japan
"This labor of 'love' is fantastic. The chapter on neoplasms is very thorough. I think this may be the best illustrated in any hepatic disease book. The text is concise and well referencd with current concepts." --John R. Craig, M.D., Pasadena, CA
"[The] chapter on AIDS is a concise, well-organized, up-to-date review of AIDS as it affects the liver, and of the hepatic disorders encountered in patients with AIDS. All the important things that one needs to know about AIDS and the liver are there. The photomicrographs, many of which have
been provided by my late colleague, Dr. Gerald Bezahler, are outstanding." --Lawrence J. Brandt, M.D., Montefiore Medical Center, New York
"It was a pleasure to read the outstanding chapter on Toxic and Drug-induced Hepatic injury that will be part of a volume that promises to be an epochal contribution to the literature of hepatology. It is truly an excellent, all-encompassing, precise and wise analysis of a huge number of
toxic lesions." --Hyman J. Zimmerman, M.D., George Washington University Medical Center, Washington, DC
"Contains slightly more than 1,000 wonderful color illustrations. . . . superbly selected so that they speak for themselves. The strength of this work is the splendid photomicrographs; no collection in print rivals this one. These chapters are clear and well illustrated and are among the best
I have ever seen, integrating much valuable information in an understandable format." --Jonathan M. Koff, Hepatology
"Long-awaited . . . superb . . . encyclopedic, exemplifying medical scholarship at its best. All the chapters are well written and superbly illustrated. The photomicrographs are magnificent -- sharp, beautifully composed, and with striking colors. The reproductions are as good as I have seen
in any publication. This is an outstanding book. I recommend it to all hepatologists and pathologists, and to any physicians who cares for patients with liver disease. Volume II is beautiful." --Marshall Kaplan, M.D., New England Journal of Medicine
"You will want to judge this histopathology textbook for yourself. There's no doubt this is the largest collection of color plates of liver histology available." --Rowen K. Zetterman, M.D., American Journal of Gastroenterology
"A superb primary reference..." --James M. Crawford, MD, PhD, New England Journal of Medicine
