Now in its fifteenth edition, this is one of the most popular pocket medical dictionaries available. It has been entirely reset from new type and increased in size by nearly 100 pages. Over 5,000 new terms have been added and many definitions revised to meet new uses. Significant of the growth of the medical vocabulary is the fact that this volume has gradually increased in size from a little over 500 pages to over 900 pages.
