While comprehensive descriptions of the various aspects of Graft-versus-Host Disease (GvHD) have already been published, to date there is no monograph on the clinical and diagnostic pathology of this life-threatening disease. This book fills this gap and serves as a reliable guide to the histomorphologic diagnosis of GvHD. It contains a concise description of: the clinical pathology of GvHD; the applicability and limits of immunohistologic methods in the diagnosis of this disease; an instructive guide to the histological diagnosis; and differential diagnostic problems and potential diagnostic pitfalls.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is an excellent, well illustrated book for pathologists and oncologists alike. The author's hard work has resulted in an outstanding book."  Review from Doody's Notes"The textbook provides the reader with information, which can be easily transformed into the daily work of a routine pathologist. . The needed grading and image findings indicative for the development are well described and demonstrated by color plates. . The references are extensive, and well selected." (Klaus Kayser, Electronic Journal of Pathology and Histology, Vol. 8 (3), 2002)
