Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Indispensable dip-in revision aid

Instant Pathology is the latest addition to the Instant series of basic science revision aids. It presents the fundamental pathological information needed for clinical practice in an easily accessible dip-in format.

Each topic is concisely displayed in a double-page spread and is broken into two sections. The first covers general pathology and processes; the second is split into organ-specific pathology.

Book News Annotation:

For harried medical students, Borley (gastrointestinal surgery, Cheltenham General Hospital, UK) and Warren (gastrointestinal pathologist, U. of Oxford) summarize the principles and clinical relevance of cellular pathology. A dozen chapters written by histopathologists and clinicians covering key conditions in each of the major organ systems are organized by epidemiology/etiology, and microscopic and morphological features. Clinical management is purposely not addressed in this companion to other texts in the series (Instant Anatomy and Instant Physiology). Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
