Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
We are pleased to note a section on audit of the autopsy itself, which is going to become more important as consumers demand a better and more standardized product from the ultimate pathology test. This book is a positive contribution to this process and should be in all training departments in the country.
Association of Clinical Pathologists

This second edition of The Hospital Autopsy is greatly needed, at a time when many junior pathologists are struggling to gain adequate autopsy teaching and experience. It is very difficult to criticise...there is no better recommendation.
The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists

An extremely popular book amongst trainee pathologists. Although the target audience for this volume is pathologists in training, there is much of interest for medical students. I would definitely recommend this book to my fellow students as a very worthwhile read.
