Practical Histology for Medical Students

by SR Prasad

Remembering that the aim of this book is to cover all the needs of undergraduate students, the Practical Histology for Medical Students has been written in a lucid language having simple and concise histological aspects of tissues and organs of the human body. The book consists of two sections dealing with tissues and organs with a provision of space for drawing diagrams. In this book only principal features of basic tissues and organs have been described, therefore, details of structure require consultation from the textbook of Histology. Identifying features of tissues and organs, as seen under light microscope, have been described very clearly in a concise way, therefore, this book is very useful to the undergraduate and postgraduate medical students for the learning of histology. Previously histology and microscopic anatomy had separate wings. Histology was dealing with study of basic tissue of body, whereas microscopic anatomy was dealing with organs of body. Nowadays histology includes microscopic anatomy to study the normal structures of tissue and cells forming organs and systems. Histology provides information essential to the development of histopathology which is dealing with the structures of sick. Histological study is very important in understanding pathology, embryology, physiology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics and immunology etc. Individual cells are structural and functional unit of plants and animals. Since, students are well acquainted with structure of cells, therefore not discussed. A body consists of various types of cells, which form tissue. Tissues form larger functional units called organs. A collection of organs, which together subserve a particular function, forms the system. In this book, structure of tissues and organs has been described in following chapters.
