Product description


2015 BMA Medical Book Awards: Highly Commended in Pathology

"This book is even shorter than before. That is?really impressive. I cannot but admire this book, which I keep re-reading since I entered?Pathology in 1966. Wow, ?it shows that even a first class?book can be improved - hard to believe but true.?It is very readable and even funny in some places. The text is nicely laid out and the book looks less bulky than the previous edition. The illustrations are excellent. Even though the book is definitely for the new generations, I am sure that it will be welcomed by senior pathologists trying to keep up with the times - I doubt that I am the?only old timer eager to?re-read it." Ivan Damjanov, MD, PhD, author of Pathology Secrets and Pathophysiology

They point out that for this edition, they have "gone one step further.? They have added a chapter entitled The Cell as a Unit of Health and Disease at the very beginning of the book. The study of the cell - including its functions, and the changes to it at anytime - is critical to understanding any particular disease in a patient. All diseases originate in the cell. The materials presented in each chapter are superbly organized. Each chapter begins by presenting, at the top just below its title, the main topics and subtopics covered in it. Discussions of the topics and subtopics follow, with numerous full-color illustrations and detailed captions. At the end of each chapter, more information is available to you in the Suggested Readings section. This is one of the most comprehensive textbooks on one of the most basic and core disciplines in medicine: pathology. With nine editions so far, this book provides a lot of current pathologic developments. It also presents updated information in molecular biology, disease classifications, new drugs and drug therapies, just to name a few important areas for physicians.

This book is also a bestseller among medical and allied professionals, as evidenced from its very high rank on Amazon. I would say that every physician should have this book in his or her medical library, particularly because of the online resources available to purchasers of this book. Nano Khilnani
