Editorial Reviews


"The book does an excellent job of integrating basic science concepts with clinical medicine. Each of the organ system chapters reviews the normal anatomy, physiology and histology, then follows with the pathophysiology, clinical findings, and pathology of the more commonly encountered disorders. Additionally there are chapters on genetic diseases, immune diseases and neoplasia which similarly link basic science principles with clinical disease entities. Each chapter contains periodic "checkpoint" questions which guide the reader to the most important concepts. Each chapter also ends with several case studies with questions and discussions, similar to those encountered on board examinations." (Doody's 2003-01-03)

From the Back Cover

"Pathophysiology at its BEST. This incredible blend of physiological and pathological concepts beautifully integrates the two subjects ... highlights important concepts in student-friendly ways ... excellent for review and preparing for exams."
-- medical student review

The perfect bridge from basic sciences into clinical sciences, this unique volume introduces disease as disorder in body systems and functions. Pathophysiology of Disease focuses on 100 diseases commonly encountered in everyday practice. Each chapter describes normal structure and function of a major organ or system, and contrasts disease pathology and disordered physiology, including the roles of genetics, immunology, and infection. Underlying disease mechanisms are revealed, including the creation of signs and symptoms seen in common presentations-and the way disease mechanisms themselves determine which treatments will be effective.

* Organized by body systems and organs
* Over 80 clinical case studies-50 new to this edition
* Q&As for self-assessment throughout each chapter
* Generously illustrated with more than 300 tables, charts, photos, and drawings
* New sections on neoplasia and rheumatic diseases
* Covers normal structure and function, pathology and disordered physiology, resultant signs and symptoms, and "whys" of treatments
* Great study aid for boards and exams

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent pathophysiology book available in the market. I am right now preparing for my step 2 but I wish I would have used this book for my step 1. I have a decent score on my step 1 and I have taken the exam recently and I think if somebody masters this book they can rock the exam. This book gives excellent information regarding many diseases. I am trying to study this book right now with CMDT, which is also by the same author. Because CMDT is a very concise text book of IM it doesn't explain all the pathophysiology for a disease but this book has all the answers about the pathophysiology of a disease. And I think its a worth buying book for all the medical students, if you study this book little by little during preclinical years it will help you very much understand the IM in the clinical years. I was surprize to find some infornation which I was craving for since few years of my med school. You will even find pathophysilogy of very rare syndromes, as for example I was amazed when I read about X linked Hypophosphatemic rickets. If you are like me who wants to have explanation behind everything, get this book today, you wan't be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Hi there first of all I would like to say that I am from Brazil, Recife, Pernambuco. I went to a university called UPE, FESP which is in the north east part of Brazil. I bought this book because I thought that it would complement BRS pathology�
But it really didn�t so as I thought that it would;
I mean it does but its like discussing too much one some points so its just not really a good book for the USMLE step1 prep; I was actually led to think that because of something I had read on the first aid book that said that �
Really did not like the book at all for the usmle prep. Although you can see that it�s a very well made book and they put their hearts into making it but it�s just not good enough for the boards.
It�s not serving me any good I barely opened it since I bought it and I got their latest edition it was sort of a waste of money for me� I think that this book might be of value for the students at UCSF that are taking classes on introduction to medicine or something like that�
But for the usmle? Forget it�!!!
It�s really confusing, and there are no simple index for a particular disease, meaning If you look for something in specific it will be related with some many things that you wont see it right there; there won�t be simple diseases listed there for you to look at like that�
Every time I go look for something its not there or it�s in contest with something else makes you loose so much time looking at it to find it� It�s a very good book but not to be used as a complement to BRS pathology unless you�re taking the class.
Hope that this was of help to some of you�

I found the book vague and unclear. It was recommended as a "reference" book for a graduate level pathophysiology course and it was the first book I returned. There are several other books on pathophysiology that are on the market for about the same price or a bit more that are MUCH more thorough and useful for undergraduate, graduate or medical student reference. I would NOT recommend this book for anyone looking at any type of indepth medical information.
