Pathology of Diseases

by Nabeen C Nayak, Subimal Roy, P Chopra

This book Pathology Diseases is readable and up-to-date valuable to the students of pathology undergraduate, postgraduate, faculty and hospital pathologists. In the present text, there is a lucidity of style, a uniformity of format of each chapter starting with the normal state of each organ system, followed by the usual sequence of aetiology, pathology, pathogenesis, prognosis and treatment, with much new and up-to-date information in evidence. Each chapter on system diseases starts with a brief recapitulation of those aspects of normal function and structure that are immediately relevant to the understanding of abnormalities in disease. Time honoured gross and microscopic features of diseased tissues have been optimally supplemented by more recent findings on pathology, pathogenesis, aetiology etc. Only those photographs, diagrams and flow charts that help in proper comprehension of written matter have been included and provides a logical correlation of the symptoms and signs of disease with changes in the tissues. Unique to the book are two chapters: Chapter 1 deals broadly with the basis of disease, namely injury, spanning from miniscule molecular abnormalities to gross trauma that lead on one hand to adaptive changes and on the other to functional and structural damages; and Chapter 16, a for-the-first-time special one, details the principles, applications and interpretations of laboratory investigations essential for diagnosis and management of disease. Relevant laboratory and other tests in common and important diseases are listed out on the basis of pathological changes specific to the disease. The book ends with a final chapter on Laboratory Tests in Diagnosis and Management of Diseases, again imparting a practical touch. This chapter spans Histopathology, Cytopathology, Haematology and Biochemical Pathology. The focus is on tests used routinely for diagnosis together with special techniques. The technologies and their diagnostic interpretations are provided in easily readable tabulated form. Each chapter ends with a small list of support reading; the reader is not encumbered with a voluminous list of references. The illustrations are in traditional black and white illuminating the text and are of good quality.
