This multi-authored work provides a comprehensive account of both general and systemic pathology in the modern context. Each chapter has been written by a panel of internationally acknowledged experts and incorporates the most recent advances in the field. Volume II covers the pathology of the systems. Newer techniques are integrated, including immunocytochemistry and molecular biology, as they apply to each organ system. Pathology has been described in its clinical context. The approach in each of the system chapters is to describe normal structure and function followed by a description and analysis of the structural and cellular bases of particular diseases. The pathobiology and clinical consequences of pathological processes are emphasized. The intent is to explain gross structural and microscopic observations in disease at a molecular level and point out their clinical relevance. A chapter is devoted to special investigative techniques in pathology including exfoliative and fine needle aspiration cytopathology, together with more recent molecular techniques such as in situ hybridization.
