Netter's Illustrated Human Pathology
Netter's Atlas of Human Pathology is a visually vibrant approach to help students gain critical insight into the structure-function relationships and the pathological basis of human disease. It provides clear and succinct representations of common human diseases by relating anatomical changes to the functional and clinical manifestations of disease and their underlying causes and mechanisms. Features more than 380 classic Netter and new Netter-sytle images, gross and microscopic photographs and tables.
The book consists of 12 organ-specific chapters - each containing precisely rendered illustrations of pathological processes and diseases accompanied by relevant text to expand knowledge and clarify understanding. Comparative data about similar disease processes are summarized in tables.

"As to be expected, this book is of the same caliber as the remainder of the Netter works. Humans are prone to think, dream, and remember in terms of pictures. Thus, it makes sense that students can learn better and faster with explanations given in pictorial format. As medical school curricula continue to adopt an organ-based system approach, this book, a natural complement to this style, will be used by students for years to come." - Doody's Book Review Service
