This text/atlas of histopathology (ie microstructure of diseased tissues) is aimed at medical, veterinary and dental students. It provides a collection of colour photomicrographs of diseased human (in all but very few cases) tissue to supplement standard pathology texts. Each illustration is accompanied by a full explanatory caption. The book is in two parts: the first covering the basic pathological principles and the second dealing with system-based disease. The overall structure has not changed in this new edition, but the captions give more emphasis to the scientific basis of disease and clinicopathological correlations.
