Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Audrey Rene Deeken, B.A.(University of Kansas School of Medicine)
Description: This review book presents detailed information on the currently understood pathology of disease. While covering a wide variety of topics, the book manages to effectively describe each disease and its pathological basis.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe the pathological basis, management, and diagnostic testing of disease. The objectives are met well with the inclusion of a new chapter on diagnostic testing and more tables to summarize concepts.
Audience: This book is targeted for medical students preparing for the USMLE Steps 1 and 2
Features: The book addresses disease using a systems-based approach. It begins with the basics of cell injury, inflammation, and repair, and progresses through organ systems in a systematic fashion. The chapter on diagnostic testing is particularly helpful for giving students an appreciation of various testing methods used in medicine. The images vary from histopathology images to clinical photos, and are of good quality.
Assessment: This is an excellent update to a strong pathology review book. It includes current information and offers deeper explanations for students interested in further diagnostic options.
