Emphasizing the important role the gastrointestinal pathologist now plays in patient management, Morson and Dawson's Gastrointestinal Pathology, 5th Edition, is a comprehensive resource for both training and practice. This revision of a "gold standard" textbook reflects current practice, where the abundance of surgical specimens and the revolution in endoscopy has made virtually the entire gastrointestinal tract accessible to biopsy.
Generations of practitioners valued Morson and Dawson's candid guidance, highly readable text, and abundant, high-quality illustrations. This edition preserves those popular features and, to add an international dimension, now includes authors from North America, the European continent, Asia, and Australia. Authors write on their areas of expertise, with chapters organized into seven major parts:
- Small Intestine
- Large Intestine
- The Anal Region
Each part opens with a chapter on normal anatomy, dissection, and relevant histology. The following chapters describe the morphology, pathogenesis, and aetiology of specific disorders and incorporate developments in molecular pathology and immunohistochemistry. A concluding chapter in each part summarizes miscellaneous conditions of that organ. More than 700 colour images throughout the text illustrate the discussion. An associated website contains all the figures for easy downloading into presentations.
With outstanding contributions from the world's leading gastrointestinal pathologists and a wealth of new information, Morson and Dawson's Gastrointestinal Pathology, 5th Edition, will serve a new generation of gastrointestinal pathologists, gastroenterologists, and pathologists as the definitive reference for the field.
