First published in 1908 by Dr James Campbell Todd as a textbook on the diagnosis of disease by laboratory measurements, Clinical Diagnosis and Management by Laboratory Methods continues into its 20th edition, maintaining its 93-year leadership as the definitive reference in the field of clinical pathology.
The changes in this edition are less dramatic than those made in the 19th edition in 1996, mostly adding and updating chapters in rapidly changing areas, particularly those on laboratory management. Revisions to some chapters have also been significant. For example, diagnosis of factor V Leiden has been added to the 20th edition in the chapter on coagulation.
