The ONLY super-concise guide to gastrointestinal pathology

In marked contrast to the standard heavy, dense pathology textbook, Dr. Shu-Yuan Xiao has created the first practical “field guide” for gastrointestinal pathology, expressly written to support fast, accurate diagnosis. Practical Gastrointestinal Pathology walks readers through differential diagnosis, whether it be following a pattern of tissue injury or asking the right questions to meet the clinical goal of a particular biopsy. This unique text will help readers differentiate diseases with overlapping histologic features, and render descriptive diagnoses to assist the clinician in providing the best possible patient care.

Practical Gastrointestinal Pathology covers some of the most frequently encountered clinical queries faced by the pathologist, and includes algorithms in every chapter to lead readers through differential diagnosis. The book’s focused approach, affordable price, and image-packed presentation makes it appealing to pathology residents as well as the established practicing pathologist.

  • Full-color presentation includes hundreds of high-quality pathology images
  • Algorithms in every chapter lead readers through differential diagnosis
Shu-Yuan Xiao, MD is Professor of Pathology at the University of Chicago.
