This comprehensive atlas, containing a wealth of high-quality images, illustrates the complete spectrum of presentations of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). It focuses especially on the most recent developments in the use of endoscopy in IBD, providing detailed guidance on endoscopic indices of disease activity, diagnosis, and differential diagnosis. In addition to ileocolonoscopy, small bowel endoscopy, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy, chapters are included on the role of both established radiological techniques, such as CT, MRI, and abdominal ultrasonography, and the newest approaches, including high-resolution endoscopy, narrow band imaging, and confocal laser endomicroscopy. Extraintestinal manifestations and complications are addressed in separate chapters, and the book concludes by presenting surgical findings. The authors are international authorities with diverse expert knowledge who have collaborated to create an ideal tool for all who wish to master endoscopic evaluation in IBD.

"The audience is medical practitioners who wish to become well versed in the GI tract and the specific pathology associated with IBD. The images that accompany the text make the book more appropriate for individuals doing endoscopy, but it also would be helpful to those who review endoscopic images in the outpatient setting. This is an excellent book for individuals in training who are familiarizing themselves with IBD pathology. ... The authors do a good job of showing specific pathology." (Matthew M. Lute, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2016)
