Thoroughly updated to reflect all of the latest concepts and advances in the field, this concise, extensively illustrated text presents the basic science and clinical application of cellular and molecular biology. Functioning as a combined text and atlas, it is essentially two books for the price of one providing a comprehensive, visually engaging histology education from the ground up. Illustrations, tables, PowerPoint™ presentations, chapter summaries and multiple choice questions facilitate comprehension of concepts, and clinical correlations underscore the practical relevance of the material.

Key Features

  • Superb illustrations—including photomicrographs, electron micrographs, schematic diagrams and drawings—provide a visual grasp and easier retention of difficult concepts.
  • Online PowerPoint™ slides, prepared by the author, offer a convenient way to review the most essential information from the text.
  • Clinical correlations throughout the text demonstrate clinical applications and reinforce the idea that histology is pertinent not only to pathology and physiology, but in fact comprises one of the essential bases of clinical practice.
  • New! "Pathological Considerations" section at the end of each chapter.
  • Helpful tables provide an at-a-glance summary statement of key points.
  • Bolded key terms, bulleted lists and chapter summaries emphasize the "need to know" information in every chapter.
  • A combination of USMLE-style questions and image based questions in each chapter.
  • Student Consult eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.

Book Reviews

"This is a high quality book that would serve any graduate biomedical students well…Although there are one or two other similar books, what makes this one stand out is the balance between text and images. It is complete without becoming too overly detailed."

-George K. Niiro, PhD (Midwestern University) for Doody’s Review Service
