Editorial Reviews


'This excellent, world-famous book analyses in anatomical order all aspects of gastrointestinal pathology. This is a masterpiece in its field. The extraordinary experience and expertise of the editors make this text unique for teaching reasons and essential for anyone who needs to reach an exact pathologic diagnosis.'
Digestive and Liver Disease, June 2006

'The book is well written and meticulously referenced. There are good photgraphs of macroscopic and microscopic pathology ... If you are a general pathologist, get this book.'
acp News, Spring 2006

'This book is factual, up to date and easy to read. There are many well chosen black and white photomicrographs. Most are of acceptable print quality....This book has been a valuable text and reference book for many practicing pathologists and despite a number of recently published books on gastrointestinal pathology it will remain a popular choice amongst pathologists.'
Pathology (on 3rd edition)

'The book is beautifully produced. High quality photomicrographs and numerous macroscopic photographs complement the text which reads easily....The authors concentrate on difficult aspects of histopathology, express an opinion - even on controversial topics - and give guidance to the practicing pathologist. The approach and the associated information contained in the book on management and prognosis should assist the pathologist to play a proper consultative role.'
Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (on 3rd edition)

Format: Hardcover
This is the fourth edition of the classic text that appears to be one of the most authoritative and comprehensive on gastrointestinal pathology currently available. The book is written by eight authors who can be regarded as some of the world's most eminent gastrointestinal pathologists.

The overall style of the book remains similar to the previous edition in that conditions affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) system are presented systematically according to anatomical location. The strength of the book lies in the comprehensive nature of the descriptions on the pathogenesis, clinical aspects, macroscopic and microscopic pathology of each disease entity. The information provided

and the references appear to be up to date. The book is most useful for the pathologist who wants to UPDATE his or her knowledge on recent advances on specific conditions, particularly in relation to assessing diagnostic criteria,

description of new disease entities and classification of specific entities. This is NOT an atlas of GI pathology.

In summary, I regard this book as an essential reference on

gastrointestinal pathology and indispensable for both general surgical and specialised gastrointestinal pathologists.

I bought the book counting on the name of Morson. I have disappointed very much after I bought this book. The pictures are not of sufficient quality and besides the book is not sufficient in text too. I came back the book to after one day I bought it.
