For beginners in pathology, for whom this textbook is primarily meant, a balanced approach for learning of pathology is recommended i.e. the students must learn basic morphologic pathology including recent knowledge of etiology and pathogenesis of diseases, and simultaneously they should know the contribution of modern diagnostic techniques mentioned above towards achieving the goal of an objective ‘final diagnosis’ that is prognostically relevant as well. This philosophy for teaching and learning of pathology has been followed in the present edition but without disturbing the basic format of the book.
Publisher: Jaypee Brothers.
- Revised and Updated Text Most of the topics in chapters have undergone revision and updating of various aspects of diseases including their newer causes and recent mechanisms by insertion of latest information between the lines. Emphasis has also been placed on contemporary diagnostic modalities in a simple and lucid manner. In doing so, the basic accepted style of the book—simple, easy-to-understand and reproduce the subject matter, and emphasis on clarity and accuracy, has not been disturbed. Considering their utility, a dozen new tables have been added in different chapters in the revised edition while many others have been updated.
- Reorganisation of the Book The redistribution of the textbook into three sections (General Pathology, Haematology and Lymphoreticular Tissues, and Systemic Pathology) done in the previous edition has been widely accepted and appreciated for its ease for locating material and has, therefore, been retained. In order to make space for addition of new information, topics of normal cell structure and function and laboratory techniques have been relocated, after editing them, to relevant chapters to which they belong.
- Newer and Revised Images Morphologic pathology has always been regarded as a highly visual branch of medicine, and therefore, there is always need and scope of doing more and making this aspect better in the new edition. In the revised edition, many newer illustrations have been added while some old ones have been replaced with better quality images or improved after eliminating their shortcomings. In boxes have been incorporated in some photomicrographs for a close-up microscopic view. In general, the effort has been to give soft and pleasing colours for soothing visual look to the new edition.
- Gist Boxes In the revised edition, at the end of every topic a short summary of the subject covered has been given. These ‘Gist Boxes’ (226 in all) include salient must-know features of the covered topic in bulleted points for a rapid revision in ultrashort time. These Gist Boxes have been given a distinctive eye-catching colour throughout the book to be visible on a glance and for looking up quickly by turning the pages of the book for a last minute revision before facing an evaluation in examination.
- Clinical Focus on Learning A novel modality of learning and self-assessment has been added in the revised edition by including 30 structured clinical cases. At the end of most of the chapters, one or more clinical cases with history and findings of examination have been given based on a common or an important disease pertaining to the system of that chapter. Questions framed at the end of these cases have been rationally answered and discussed in an analytical manner in Appendix II.
- Revised Pathology Quick Review and MCQs .The 7th edition of textbook is accompanied with the new revised baby-book popular with many students and interns. This small book has been found profoundly useful by the students just before practical examination to face viva voce when they need to revise huge course content in a short time, or by those preparing to take postgraduate entrance examinations. The revised edition has over 50 more new MCQs while some old ones have either been edited or replaced.
