Book Description

October 31, 2005 1416000313 978-1416000310 3
This introductory text provides a solid foundation of knowledge for students in health professions. Divided into two sections, general pathology and systemic pathology, it focuses on the most common diseases, which are either frequently encountered or illustrate an important principle. Each chapter begins with a review of normal tissues and organs and follows with a discussion of the major diseases. New features in this third edition include additional Did You Know boxes, more full-color illustrations, and an expanded glossary.
  • Clear, non-technical writing style engages students and makes difficult information easy to comprehend.
  • "DEPPiCT" approach presents each major disease in the same format that includes, whenever feasible, a Definition or description, Etiology, Pathogenesis, Pathology, and Clinical features, and a short discussion on Therapy or prognosis.
  • Learning objectives and a chapter outline at the beginning of each chapter inform the student of what is within the chapter and can also be used to test the student's retention upon completion of the chapter.
  • A key terms list is provided at the beginning of each chapter. These terms are bolded and explained at first mention within the text. They are also defined in the glossary.
  • Each chapter ends with several open-ended review questions that represent the core information from the chapter and allow students to evaluate how well they have mastered the material.
  • More Did You Know boxes provide interesting stories and curious facts about various disorders. Additions to this edition address relevant health issues such as West Nile Virus.
  • An expanded glossary gives students easy access to needed definitions even if a medical dictionary is not readily available.
  • Additional full-color illustrations reinforce the written message and simplify the information contained within the text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for the subject May 28, 2007
This is really a pretty good book. It seems to be helping overall with my comprehension of the subject, but the material is very dense. I don't think anyone should really expect to retain too much on the first go around, but using the review questions near at the end of each chapter really helped with the pathology class, and the testing for that class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a pathology course in medical school June 8, 2011
By Ravi
Behind Rapid Review Pathology (Goljan) this was my favorite book during my second year of medical school. I used to read Robbins basic pathology religiously, but realistically that book is not well suited for medical school. The Robbins series has way too much detail about the pathogenesis and histo-path and not enough detail about the clinical presentation. I like this book because it is a brief read and by the end of each chapter you will really be able to paint a picture in your head about how a patient with a specific disease will present. The schematics are great! If you are using Rapid Review Pathology, then you should consider this book a must read companion text. Dr. Damjanov has copyrights on many of the gross path images and you will see many of them in Goljan's text (Goljan even thanks him in the preface of Rapid Review Path). After reading this book you can really tell how pathology can be so different if it is taught from a clinical standpoint. I highly recommend this book, especially when used with Rapid Review Pathology.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good book January 24, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Damjanov does a good job of explaining the overall processes that you need to know. Some things are more in depth than others, but if you are looking for clear pictures and a good foundation, Patho does a good job.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Digital Book Does NOT work on PC! March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is great. But you should know that this book is not supported by Kindle for Windows 8. So, if you need this book on your PC, you should install Amazon Kindle for Windows 7.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair November 3, 2013

Require book for my pathophysiology class. The book is written well and clear to understand. I do feel that some of the disease processes could have included more detail.
