Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carmen Winters, BS (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is the ninth edition of a thorough yet concise overview of pathology, organized by organ system, which also includes chapters on general pathology.
Purpose: As a pared down version of the larger textbook, Robbins and Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease, 8th edition, Kumar et al. (Elsevier, 2009), it targets the modern medical student who may not have the luxury of time to read such a large book.
Audience: This will be a very useful resource to its audience of medical students, because it focuses on more common and high-yield pathology, without dumbing down the material.
Features: The book first covers topics of general pathology, such as cell injury, inflammation, and neoplasia. These are topics that the main textbook does so uniquely well, and this book also does an excellent job. Next are chapters on the pathology of specific organ systems. These chapters omit many of the rare entities and devote the bulk of the text to those that medical students are most likely to encounter. There are plenty of high-quality color illustrations, including photomicrographs, gross photos, and a variety of charts. Chapters are also broken up by subtopics into colored boxes, which is very appealing to overwhelmed readers.
Assessment: This excellent book is ideal for medical students to read cover-to-cover. Although the main textbook is an unbeatable resource, its size makes it unrealistic that medicals students could completely digest it. This version strikes a good balance, still providing students with an in-depth discussion of disease process, but avoiding an overwhelming list of entities.
