This chapter outlines a practical approach to anorectal and colonic pathology. In particular, there is emphasis on pathological assessment, which is relevant to patient management. The chapter is broadly divided into three main sections: the interpretation of mucosal biopsies from the large bowel, the examination of resected specimens for benign disease and the examination of resected specimens for malignancy. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
