DESCRIPTION

This completely revised edition of Alcoholic Liver Disease is subtitled Pathology and Pathogenesis to emphasize the major focus of the book. All aspects of the pathology of alcoholic-associated liver injury including metabolic and immunological disturbances, and the spectrum of histopathology seen in the liver (illustrated by both color and black and white photographs) are discussed in depth. The chapters on pathogenic mechanisms of alcohol-assisted liver injury (which include liver fibrosis and regeneration) and on factors that increase the risk of alcohol-assisted liver injury provide new insights and suggest important areas for future research. The chapters discussing how to differentiate alcoholic liver disease from various types of "pseudo-alcoholic liver disease" and from genetic haemochromatis will become a definitive reference source for hepatologists and other medical personnel caring for patients with liver disease. This definitive text will prove invaluable to hepatologists, gastroenterologists, and pathologists with an interest in liver disease.
