Muir's Textbook of Pathology, Fourteenth Edition
Edited by David A Levison, Robin Reid, Alistair D Burt, David J Harrison and Stewart Fleming
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 all in context for students of clinical medicine and surgery.
This fully-revised fourteenth edition has a clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure, new photographs and explanatory line diagrams, in full colour, and applicability to both systems-based and problem-based undergraduate courses. Focusing on core material without neglecting up-to-the-minute detail, this book is a key text for students, but also has significant appeal for pathology trainees.
The emphasis on the clinical application of pathology is enhanced in this new edition
through the inclusion of clinical case studies that relate pathological mechanisms to patients,
problems and prognoses. Useful directions for further study are suggested by the special
study topics that appear in each chapter.
