Review quote

"The style and content of this book make it a must-have for students and residents in pathology. It compresses large amounts of data into a concise, easy-to-read format that includes the most pertinent information for each entity. This book offers a comprehensive differential diagnosis list for every entity and subsequently compares them, which is what has made it such a popular book."
