Not everyone will have the luxury or luck of having a good professor for histology in Medial School. If this is the case, you are most likely going to teach the course to yourself. One book that will not make this task any easier is Junquiera¿s Basic Histology Text and Atlas. The author tends to jump around in his explanation of the material and repeats statements. For example, p.91 ¿Fibroblasts synthesize collagen, elastin, glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, and multiadhesive glycoproteins.¿ The author then explains what a fibroblast is and three paragraphs down states again but slightly differently, ¿fibroblasts synthesize proteins, such as collagen and elastin, that form collagen, reticular, and elastic fibers, and the glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, and glycoproteins of the extracellular matrix.¿ The structure of the text is as if the thought process of the author is scattered or more so backwards. The majority of my classmates did not enjoy Junquiera¿s explanations (even though they are somewhat thorough once you realize that you have to read on for a couple of paragraphs before grasping the whole idea in a structured manner). On a positive note, the text is rather well illustrated and does contain clinical correlations. If you are forced to buy Junquiera, I recommend using Paulsen¿s Histology and Cell Biology. This is not only a great review book for the USMLE but also a very well organized companion to Junquiera. Unfortunately, Paulsen¿s does not contain pictures and therefore an Atlas would be required.

Basic Histology is now on its 10th edition, possibly a unique feat in textbooks on Histology, making it a classic in its field. Over the years its receptivity has spread beyond the USA. It has been translated into 16 languages, and is being used by medical students of many countries. The present edition, revised and updated, maintains the same winning features that have insured its success for 35 years: highlight on morpho-functional interaction utilization of tridimensional illustrations and the didactic pointing out of Histology's ties with Biochemestry, Pathology and medical practice. The very effective combination of limpid, authoritative text with strikingly detailed, clear micrographs and drawings justify the leading position of Basic Histology as the preferred textbook of Histology in the USA and abroad.
