Approximately 30,000 solid organ transplants are performed in the US each year, and biopsies from these patients are seen in community practice as well as in academic medical centers. Atlas of Transplant Pathology serves as a handy resource for practical interpretation of solid organ transplant biopsies and other specimens by general pathologists as well as subspecialists.
The book includes numerous, high-quality, full-color images and concise text, providing a framework for interpreting histologic patterns. Within the text, which contains the most recent ISHLT Working Formulation and Banff classifications, each organ system has its own section, and each diagnostic category under that section has its own chapter for ease of finding the information needed to assist in diagnosis. The succinct and highly illustrated format also serves as a convenient review for pathology residents, fellows, and others who must study for boards or other tests that include solid organ transplant pathology.
