Overview

Klatt (biomedical sciences, Florida State University College of Medicine) and Kumar (pathology, University of Chicago) provide a review of pathology. In keeping with the style used by the USMLE, the book includes single best answer questions, most with a clinical vignette, followed by a series of choices. This approach emphasizes an understanding of pathophysiologic mechanisms and manifestations of disease in a clinical context. Laboratory, radiology, and physical diagnostic findings are incorporated to emphasize clinicopathologic correlations, and illustrated with color and b&w images. This second edition contains new questions and a new final review chapter. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
