Ultrastructural Pathology, Second Edition is a comprehensive reference on electron microscopy of pathologic tissue in animals and humans. Now presented in an atlas format for easier identification of organelles, the text is designed to bridge the gap between what is seen in the electron microscope at the cellular level and what the pathologist encounters in the postmortem room. New to this edition are sections on diagnostic electron microscopy, providing information on specialized technologies for electron microscopy, and invertebrate pathology. Emphasizing comparative pathology, the book explains and integrates all aspects of cellular changes in lesions occurring from natural or experimental disease.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The reorganization of the book, with complete tables of infectious agents and updated references, and the addition of illustrations to display complex cellular processes contribute to the book's value as a reference text. I highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for students, researchers, pathologists, and veterinary health-care professionals." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, March 2010)

"This atlas has something for everyone: the student preparing for pathology boards, the bench pathologist, the diagnostician, and the toxicologic pathologist, just to name a few. This book, like the first edition, will be the gold standard desk reference for anyone who needs to interpret or confirm cellular changes from surgical or postmortem lesions." (Microscopy & Microanalysis, 2010)
