An accessible and enjoyable introduction to pathology and the mechanisms of disease, this book puts pathology into its historical, scientific and clinical context. Organized in four main themes – What is a Disease, Defense Against Disease, Circulatory Disorders and Disorders of Cell Growth – the text highlights key mechanisms and their interplay in producing symptoms, signs and disease. Supplemented throughout with colorful cartoons, and much-praised clinical scenarios, this entertaining look at pathology offers historical anecdotes and helpful key-points boxes.
