This book is devoted to motility disorders of the gut and their diagnosis, a field which can be frustrating when classical histological staining techniques are used. The use of enzyme histochemical techniques, however, provides important information on functional abnormalities of colon motility, which is demonstrated here in more than two hundred photomicrographs. The individual chapters are divided into three sections: the first outlines and illustrates pathological aspects of a particular disorder, the second provides diagnostic criteria, and the third discusses clinical pathology. In a final chapter the methodology of enzyme histochemistry is described. Drawing from 40 years of experience in the diagnosis of biopsies from the mucosa of the rectosigmoid and laparoscopic biopsies of muscularis propria from different gut areas, the authors have compiled a clearly organized and didactic volume, which will be highly useful to practicing pathologists, technicians and trainees in pathology. It will also be of great benefit to gastroenterologists, pediatricians, and coloproctological and pediatric surgeons in helping them interpret histopathological findings in the gastrointestinal tract.

There are many tomes available detailing the histopathological features of both general surgical pathology entities and organ specific pathologies. In addition, several texts present aspects of developmental, fetal and placental pathology. However, for the specialist paediatric pathologist with a significant paediatric surgical specimen workload, and for the practising general surgical pathologist faced with reporting paediatric surgical specimens, although information regarding many of the specific entities affecting childhood is available in the former texts, such information requires searching of many disjointed books. Therefore, the aim of this publication is to present a comprehensive and detailed account, which brings together and covers all, or at least most, paediatric surgical pathological entities in a single volume, to allow rapid access for day-to-day use by practising histopathologists. The focus is on practical diagnostic issues throughout. Concentrates on the diagnostic and management issues that are relevant to the surgical pathologist when signing out a report: ie variant histopathological appearances, what the surgeon needs to know about grading. Comprehensive coverage of all entities that occur in children and adolescents.Provides the general surgical pathologist more used to interpreting adult specimens with a complete guide to all of the histopathologic differences in appearance compared to similar diseases in adults. Superb, high quality full color illustrations of key aspects of various diseases (histopathologic, molecular and clinical features) throughout.Provides a complete visual guide to paediatric neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions will allow rapid identification of tumor or tumor-like lesions. Includes the latest techniques in immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics in an integrated manner.Provides comprehensive information on all of the investigative contexts relevant to formulating an accurate. diagnosis. Information organized simply and consistently throughout in bullet point format.Helps the users find what they’re looking for quickly and easily. Extensive use of tables to list all of the possible differential diagnosis of each tumor and tumor-like entity. User-friendly summary of key points to be considered in problem areas presented in a way that makes it ideal for a busy surgical pathologist.
These notes were developed as a synopsis of general and systemic pathology in order to present to those students who are preparing for national examinations a relatively concise review of the discipline. These notes are not intended to replace the many fine textbooks of pathology whose scope, detail, and mission are more suited to the in-depth study of pathology. Rather, these notes are in tended to serve as "memory joggers" to rekindle and refresh the recall of salient features of various disease processes and to point out to the student possible areas of weakness which they may need to address in more detail by referring to one of the standard textbooks of pathology. Hopefully, the notes will allow a systematic review of the material in a rea sonable amount of time. Some major topics in Pathology (genetic diseases, im munologic disorders, and infectious diseases) are covered in other areas of our curriculum and are therefore not included in an organized fashion in these notes.
