"Case-Based Pathology and Laboratory Medicine" is a brand new text that uses over 20 real patient cases to teach students and junior doctors to recognise and understand significant diseases and their complications from a pathology perspective. Each case presents relevant clinical data, in full colour throughout, and guides you through to a diagnosis via multiple-choice questions. The MCQs are flagged throughout as Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. Detailed answers are provided with a final diagnosis and synopsis to each presented case. Further information is given to help interpret results and tables and many lab tips are included. "Case-Based Pathology and Laboratory Medicine" is a perfect test-yourself revision resource for medical students and junior doctors. It is excellent for clinical attachments as well as exam revision and preparation for OSCEs. Pre-publication review: 'The book is really good. It makes pathology easier and more fun to study' - 4th year student, Manchester.
