This one-stop-shop in pathology that will take the student right through medical school and beyond to postgraduate training.
"As always, the fifteenth edition of this book offers succinct and up-to-date information in pathology. The pictures are of high quality, and the illustrations and tables are informative and serve as perfect adjuncts to the text. Finally, the cost of the book is modest. All in all, it is a must-have for any students interested in pathology."
