Overview

This handbook consists of 34 cases in a problem-based format, with a presentation of clinical and laboratory data, extensive discussion and analysis of differential diagnoses, and a description of pathology findings. While focus is on cardiovascular disease, other disease categories are included if they have an impact on cardiovascular function. A final chapter discusses medicine, law, and the heart. The book includes some 90 B&W photos and micrographs from post-mortem exams, an anatomy glossary, and laboratory normal values. The book is intended for medical students in a problem-based curriculum, but can also be used by residents in pathology and internal medicine, and by pathologists and cardiologists. Factor teaches pathology and medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
