About this book


This atlas describes and illustrates the pathology of solid organ transplants and includes chapters covering transplant pathology of the kidney, lung, heart, liver, pancreas, small bowel and limbs. Each of these chapters briefly reviews the latest rejection classifications for each organ system with explanatory notes highlighting diagnostic criteria, and tables listing entities in the differential diagnosis. Included with each chapter are images demonstrating the pathology of the most common and important diseases, especially patterns of organ rejection and related entities or mimickers. Examples of classic disease processes are provided, as well as atypical presentations that may highlight and prevent diagnostic pitfalls.

A comprehensive explanation of the immunogenetics of transplant rejection is included, enabling the general pathologist to become familiar with the most important aspects of serologic testing in this patient population. A review of post-transplant lymphoproliferative diseases is also provided.

Practical Atlas of Transplant Pathology is aimed at both general and expert pathologists who encounter transplant pathology specimens in their practice.
