Product Description

Review

Underwood's pathology is a very concise and yet full guide through the progression of diseases. It is fantastic for PBL because it gives you a basic pathological outline and explains the technical terminology as it goes. It uses some good clear flow diagrams and very memorable pictures to hammer the point home. I find it has a perfect level of detail for first and second year. Histological changes in tissues are also included which cuts down on research time. It also finds space to include other aspects of illness such as aetiology and recent advances in the field. The layout into pathologies of each body system makes the book easy to use effectively. Any time where there is reference made to another part of the book a page number is provided. The index is well detailed and accurate. It is very easy to read as the sentences are short and to the point, and paragraphs broken up by tables and diagrams. - Medical Student, University of Glasgow

 

"This is the definitive UK textbook of pathology...The range of coverage provided by Underwood and Cross in general and systematic pathology is excellent...This new edition of Underwood and Cross expands on previous success and cements its postition as the market leader for undergraduate UK pathology and in curricula worldwide based on the UK system." The Bulletin, January 2010

James Underwood is the Professor of Pathology at the University of Sheffield, UK, and a Consultant Histopathologist.

James graduated in medicine and started his career in pathology in London before going to Sheffield. During his early career he held a research fellowship from the Medical Research Council and in the early 1980s he had a sabbatical in Australia. His main interests arein breast cancer and chronic inflammatory liver disease. James is currently Vice-President of the Royal College of Pathologists, President of the BritishDivision of the International Academy of Pathology, and Editor of "Histopathology", a monthly journal.

As the title suggests, it starts with the basic principles of pathology and then goes through each system, covering enough detail without being too overbearing. There are loads of good quality colour photos, with the compulsory gory allocation a pathology book has to have! The text not only covers pathological details but relevant physiology, aetiology and clinical features. It's useful throughout medical school life and is definitely one to recommend. Overall, a worthwhile investment!

Format: Paperback
A very detailed and well structured text on pathology. Written by the professor of pathology at Sheffield - it pretty much covers everything on the pathology curriculum here. The introductory chapters are also very useful and include such topics as the causation of disease etc. Very descriptive and very well written. You will need to supplement this with a good clinical medicine book (such as kumar and clark) to simplify things a little!!

I think the book is good because it takes you on a journey from basic levels of understanding to more advanced. It does not cloud you with heavy terminology and explains pathology adequately to get a good understanding of the subject. For undergraduate students more key questions would have been welcome.

By Student on 4 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a good book and does cover a wide range of material, although perhaps not always in the depth that you would hope for. As it says on the tin, it covers disease processes on a more histological level, which can be very useful. However, when attempting to study a condition, you generally want more information than this, so you will have to use this book in conjunction with other sources.

From experience I've found that it works particularly well when teamed with Kumar and Clark, because Systematic pathology covers more of the histology, while Kumar and Clark covers more of the clinical picture.

I think the best thing about this book is the image at the beginning of each chapter- it highlights a symptom, and then demonstrates many of the possible differential diagnoses in picture form, which I find incredibly useful! Similarly, the symptom index at the back can also come in very handy, and its a lot more accessible than having to buy yet another book, but this time on differential diagnoses.

Format: Paperback
I am currently a student nurse, this book provides much more detail than I need for my current undergraduate programme. It is very informative and accessable.

My conclusion is, for the purposes of nursing this book is excellent and will be useful long after more basic books have been discarded. It is logically arranged and well written.

Format: Paperback
I was amazed by this book. It enables a detailed, and often monotonous, subject to come alive and become interesting. With full colour pictures, this book brings pathology to life and is essential to all medical students who really want to know pathology. It manages to strike the balance between detailed knowledge and overload, and doesn't manage to bore the reader. I strongly recommend this book as an adjunct to your lecture notes.

as a third year medical student, i found that on the whole, this book was not that useful. although it is fairly accurate and complete in certain areas, some topics are very superficially covered.

this is a fantastic book for a 2nd/3rd year med student! although some of the topics are covered superficially, the most important topics such as breast and prostate cancer, inflammatory diseases, neoplasia, bone disorders, ulcerative colitis and crohns (just to name a few), and many others are covered very well, the books is a very nice read, with nice pictures and diagrams too.
