Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"It is intended as a complete resource of transplantation pathology for solid organs. . this book is geared toward practicing pathologists who encounter transplant and post-transplant specimens. Transplant surgeons and transplant fellows in hepatology, nephrology, and cardiology also will find this book a useful resource. . Thoroughly referenced, logically organized, and beautifully illustrated, this book is as practically useful as it is enjoyable to read. Physicians involved in organ transplantation would not be disappointed by the addition of this book to their library." (Maura F. O''Neil, Doody''s Review Service, February, 2012)
