Muir's Textbook of Pathology
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


First published in 1924, Muir's Textbook of Pathology has set a standard in this subject by linking the scientific aspects that underlie pathological processes, relating these to pathological changes specific to the various organ systems, and placing it all in context for students of clinical medicine and surgery. Subsequent editions have retained this popular approach, while introducing novel concepts and taking into account the evolution in the teaching of general pathology that has occurred. This fully-revised fourteenth edition maintains its clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure and includes new photographs and explanatory line diagrams, all in full color. It also retains its applicability to both systems-based and problem-based undergraduate courses. Focusing on core material presented in sufficient detail, this book is a key text for students and has significant appeal for pathology trainees. Divided into two main sections, the text opens with a series of introductory chapters on the mechanisms of general pathology before progressing to a discussion of pathology in relation to specific body systems. The emphasis on the clinical application of pathology is enhanced in this new edition through the use of clinical case studies that relate pathological mechanisms to patients, problems, and prognoses. Useful directions for further inquiry are suggested by the special study topics that appear in each chapter, while other reader-friendly aids enhance the value of the text during exam preparation. Medical students new to the topic and postgraduates looking for a ready reference to the subject will find the 14th edition of Muir's Textbook of Pathology an invaluable tool during study and in clinical practice.
