Overview

It's been five years since the previous edition of Pathologic Basis of Disease; authors Stanley Robbins and Ramzi Cotran have both passed on, and their names have been added to the head of the title. Three authors have undertaken the update: Vinay Kumar (U. of Chicago), Abul K. Abbas (U. of California, San Francisco), and Nelson Fausto (U. of Washington). Previous editions have been appreciated for their timeliness and incorporation of new developments, so it's surely only with careful thought that the material has been restrained to one volume. The goals of the reference remain the same—primarily to provide a clear reference for use by students throughout their four years of medical school, with enough depth and detail for more advanced readers as well. The first 10 chapters on general pathology are followed by 19 chapters on diseases of the organ systems. An online version, available to those who purchase the print version, affords the many advantages of that medium; the included CD-ROM contains interactive case studies.
