by Nandita Bharadwaj Kakkar

This book focuses on 101 Medical Autopsy Cases: Adult and Pediatric. Medical Autopsy is the strongest teaching tool in medicine and has no substitute. It is the most scientific method to learn pathology and medicine, by correlating the clinical details and pathology of a patient via the “Clinicopathologic Correlation Conferences”. This book consists of 16 sections in which 101 case studies are discussed. The cases have been grouped in the following order as hematologic disorders, malignancies, infections, hepatobiliary and pancreatic disorders, cardiovascular system, systemic vasculitides, primary renal mucormycosis, histiocytosis, primary immunodeficiency, infantile nephrotic syndromes, congenital heart disease, storage disorder and pediatric renal cystic disease (developmental/genetic/syndromes). Introductory text chapters—introduction to medical autopsy, systemic vasculitides, tubercular meningitis and pediatric renal cystic diseases are added for better understanding. Each autopsy case is a complete journey of the patient/deceased and has been concisely discussed under the following headings—title, highlights of the case, clinical details, investigations, clinical diagnosis, final autopsy diagnosis, review of literature, commentary index case, take home message and suggested reading or references. This book will be a great teaching material for the pathologists, medical physicians, pediatricians, neonatologists, obstetricians, radiologists along with undergraduates or postgraduates students of medicine.
