Overview

An Introduction to Human Disease, Sixth Edition is a clearly written and profusely illustrated text that takes a systems approach to presenting human disease. Specifically designed for students in the allied health and nursing fields, the text correlates structure and function disturbances, indicates how the disturbances cause the clinical manifestations of the various diseases, and discusses how these disturbances also initiate treatment. Though vastly updated, the text is still organized into two main sections: the first section covers general concepts and diseases that affect the body as a whole; the second section takes a systems approach, which details disorders typically affecting specific organ systems.
