Muir's Textbook of Pathology sets a standard in this subject by linking the scientific aspects that underlie pathological processes, relating these to specific organ systems and placing all in a context that the student of medicine or pathology can appreciate and understand.
The clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure, enhanced by numerous photographs and explanatory line diagrams, focus on core material without neglecting novel concepts and up-to-the minute detail. This one-stop-shop in pathology that will take the student right through medical school and beyond to postgraduate training.
