The intent of this "Review of Pathology of the Liver" is that of providing students and practitioners of hepathology with an easily accessible visual material rendered possible by computer technology. This system permits illustrations of good quality which can be viewed and reviewed again from home, offices and libraries on a world wide scale, thus contributing to a uniform diffusion of knowledge.
The material presented in this manner has also the advantage of being continuously updateable. I think and I hope that many other experts will utilize this facility in order to share their experiences and provide the readers with the opportunity of comparing opinions. This program is in progress. With the help of contributors and technicians we hope to proceed (maximis itineribus) at high speed. From this moment, however, I beg your tolerance for the defects which obviously occur in every human creation.
