Overview

AUTHORITATIVE INFORMATION FROM THE SOURCE YOU TRUST

The third edition of Karch's Pathology of Drug Abuse continues to provide a comprehensive yet accessible guide to the pathology, toxicology, and pharmacology of commonly abused drugs. As in previous editions, the focus remains on the investigation of drug-related deaths and on practical approaches to the detection of drug abuse. It covers in detail the clinical consequences of drug usage and provides the latest information on clinical aspects of drug abuse. This well-written, extensively referenced resource supplies a mixture of clinical information and pathology findings.

SEE WHAT'S NEW IN THE THIRD EDITION:

  • New information on methamphetamine abuse
  • New chapter on GHB, ketamine, and select herbal hallucinogens
  • New micrographs showing pathology of drug related deaths
  • Over 1000 new references

About the author: Steven B. Karch has appeared as an expert witness in international cases, including advice to counsel in the Harold Shipman murder trial.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
How cocaine affects blood vessels and how heroin affects the lungs are among the bits of practical but generally hard to find information Karch, medical director of Las Vegas Fire and Rescue and assistant medical examiner for San Francisco, offers physicians dealing with drug abuse patients. He does not discuss alcohol, which he says requires its own book, nor marijuana, for which not enough good anatomical pathology is available. The earlier editions appeared in 1992 and 1996; the third incorporates developments in the molecular biology of addiction that are directly relevant to the clinical disciplines of pathology and toxicology.
