Greenfield's Neuropathology, Two Volume Set, Eighth Edition / Edition 8

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on


Greenfield's Neuropathology, the worlds leading neuropathology reference, provides an authoritative, comprehensive account of the pathological findings in neurological disease, their biological basis and their clinical manifestations. This account is underpinned throughout by a clear description of the molecular and cellular processes and reactions that are relevant to the development, and normal and abnormal functioning of, the nervous system. While this scientific content is of paramount importance, however, care has been taken to ensure that the information is presented in a way that is accessible to readers working within a range of disciplines in the clinical neurosciences, and that also places the neuropathological findings within the context of a broader diagnostic process.

The new eighth edition incorporates much new information, new illustrations and many new authors, while retaining the depth, breadth and quality of content so praised in previous editions. Each chapter opens with an introductory section designed to offer an integrated approach to diagnosis, taking account of clinical manifestations, neuroradiological and laboratory findings as well as the neuropathological and molecular genetic features of the diseases being considered. Strong emphasis has been placed on facilitating the retrieval of neuropathological information by non-neuropathologists grapping with differential diagnoses or seeking information on broad categories of neurological disease, and boxes and tables are used to present important symptoms and signs, patterns of disease and other features for ease of reference.

High quality line and photographic illustrations, the majority in full colour, are all available on a companion CD, to complete the offering.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In summary, there is no doubt the new edition builds well on the outstanding strength of the previous editions. It will maintain its place as a key textbook of neuropathology. This book should be on the shelves of all diagnostic histopathology departments and clinical and experimental neuropathologists."

Dr Thomas S Jacques, The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists
