This revised and updated second edition explains how to analyze endoscopic mucosal biopsies of the ileum and colon. As in the first edition, the diagnosis and follow up of colitis in general and inflammatory bowel diseases in particular is covered and this edition also includes new chapters on ileitis and optimal biopsy procedures. The basic lesions are described using multiple drawings together with an explanatory text and endoscopic and histological photographs. A review of various differenti…

Abstract
This revised and updated second edition explains how to analyze endoscopic mucosal biopsies of the ileum and colon. As in the first edition, the diagnosis and follow up of colitis in general and inflammatory bowel diseases in particular is covered and this edition also includes new chapters on ileitis and optimal biopsy procedures. The basic lesions are described using multiple drawings together with an explanatory text and endoscopic and histological photographs. A review of various differential diagnostic issues and types of colitis is also included. Colitis: A Practical Approach to Colon and Ileum Biopsy Interpretation is aimed at general pathologists and pathologists in training and also gastroenterologists to help them understand how a precise diagnosis can be reached.

During the past decade, the medical and surgical treatment of ulcerative colitis has undergone dramatic advances, including the widespread use of immunomodulators, biological drugs, and restorative proctocolectomy. In order to correctly balance the risks and benefits of medical therapies and surgical procedures, there is a need for improved diagnosis of colonic disease, acute complications, extraintestinal manifestations, and early and delayed postoperative complications. Cross-sectional imagin…

Abstract
During the past decade, the medical and surgical treatment of ulcerative colitis has undergone dramatic advances, including the widespread use of immunomodulators, biological drugs, and restorative proctocolectomy. In order to correctly balance the risks and benefits of medical therapies and surgical procedures, there is a need for improved diagnosis of colonic disease, acute complications, extraintestinal manifestations, and early and delayed postoperative complications. Cross-sectional imaging techniques are therefore playing an increasing role in the assessment of ulcerative colitis and provide an essential complement to clinical data and endoscopy. This practical, illustrated volume on the role of cross-sectional imaging is aimed at radiologists, gastroenterologists, and surgeons who are engaged or interested in the diagnosis and care of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, particularly ulcerative colitis. After an overview of diagnostic imaging techniques, state-of-the-art assessment of colorectal inflammatory disease with CT colonography using water enema and bowel MRI is discussed, followed by description of the plain radiographic and CT findings in patients with acute exacerbations and surgical complications. Subsequent chapters review the diagnostic findings and role of cross-sectional imaging in the assessment of sclerosing cholangitis (with emphasis on MR cholangiopancreatography), vascular complications (particularly portal and mesenteric thrombosis), colitis-associated colorectal cancer and perianal inflammatory disease. Normal postoperative appearances and early and delayed complications in patients treated with proctocolectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis are also comprehensively reviewed.
