Review quote

"The fact that this book has reached its fifth edition speaks for itself. In its new format, it uses a more clinical approach, which will appeal to modern students and their clinically oriented teachers. the first and only choice for all those pathologists who are still teaching microscopic pathology to their medical students." - Doody's Review, 4 Stars
