  • More than 20 experts present their collective knowledge to assist you with different aspects of transplant pathology, including rare issues such as the impact of new viral infections (e.g., the Zika virus on transplant patients who are immunosuppressed)
  • Packed with high-quality images that provide examples and potential pitfalls of diagnostic lesions that you are likely to encounter
  • Time-saving reference features include bulleted text, tables of diagnostic criteria, annotated images, and an extensive index

Part of the highly regarded Diagnostic Pathology series, this updated volume by Drs. Anthony Chang and Robert B. Colvin is an ideal point-of-care reference to guide you through the complex realm of transplant pathology. Concise, focused chapters, supported by tables, diagrams, radiographs, and photographs, provide essential information to keep you up to date with the impact of new viral infections, updates from the Banff Allograft Conference, new information on next-generation sequencing, and much more.
