Overview

Building upon the solid foundation and impeccable reputation established by its predecessors, this truly evolutionary work has once again been extensively revised to reflect important advances in our understanding of the biology and pathophysiology of disease and its timely diagnosis and effective management. Virtually every chapter is revised or substantially rewritten. Individual topics throughout the text are updated to incorporate the most recent basic and clinical research findings; topics of new significance or renewed interest are given expanded coverage.","Now with a dramatic new emphasis on therapy, Harrison's continues to define the practice of medicine into the next millennium. With forty-nine completely new chapters and a complete updating to the entire text, this edition examines the biologic and pathophysiologic origin of disease and charts a clear course for diagnosis and management. And now, the treatment information is expanded and graphically highlighted within the chapter for quick access. Other highlights include an expanded state-of-the-art coverage HIV/AIDS from Drs. Fauci and Lane, a new section devoted to oncology, a revitalized art program, medical ethics, and much more.
