This is the first volume in a new Springer series, Pathology for Clinicians, which aims to assist clinicians in their daily decision making by providing reliable, clearly presented information on current techniques in pathology, their uses and indications, clinical-pathologic correlations, and the significance of pathologic diagnoses. Liver Pathology for Clinicians first discusses key technical aspects of liver biopsy, including the use of special stains and immunohistochemistry. Detailed guidance is provided on both common and uncommon indications for liver biopsy, including repeat or serial biopsies, and on the choice of procedure. The role of liver biopsy in the contexts of transplantation and systemic disease is also clearly explained. Clinical-pathologic correlations are presented with the aid of high-quality illustrations.

"The purpose is to provide a concise and meaningful overview of liver pathology for clinicians. The book is written primarily for practicing gastroenterologists, internal medicine residents, hepatology and gastroenterology fellows, and hepatology midlevel providers. However, surgical pathology residents and fellows, as well as practicing surgical pathologists, also could find it useful. ... This is a great little book that describes in a very clear fashion a relatively challenging area of pathology." (Anamarija M. Perry, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2016)
