Description: An authoritative guide to the histological and genetic typing of human tumors of the digestive system. Prepared by 113 experts from 17 countries, the book covers neoplasms of the entire gastrointestinal tract, liver, biliary system, and exocrine pancreas. In view of their increasingly recognized importance, inherited tumor syndromes involving the digestive system are also described. Over 2200 references are included in this authoritative international tool. The book is organized according to ten groups of tumors. Each tumor is introduced with a concise definition and discussion of nomenclature, followed by a summary of what is known about its epidemiology, aetiology, clinical features, macroscopic and microscopic appearance, genetic susceptibility, genetic alterations, and prognosis and predictive factors. Distinctive features are further characterized through the inclusion of over 700 color photographs, numerous magnetic resonance and ultrasound images, charts, and CT scans. The book provides an international standard for oncologists, gastroenterologists, and pathologists and will be an especially useful guide in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome. This book is in the series commonly referred to as the "Blue Book" series. Pathology and Genetics of Tumors of the Digestive System
