Abstract

The preface states that this book is directed to the individual with special interest in pediatric pathology, rather than to one with special training. The author points out that it is not intended as a comprehensive text or as a reference volume.

The book is printed on high-quality paper. Most of the illustrations, charts, tables, and diagrams are excellent.

The book is well organized, with most chapters having a similar organization—embryology and development are covered, followed by a discussion of disease states.

The introductory chapter on examination of the fetus is a good introduction to the subject and should be of use to the beginning pathology resident and as a refresher to the general pathologist who performs an occasional autopsy on an infant. The brief introduction to nonaccidental injury should be read by all first-year residents in pathology. The sections on the placenta and heart are well done.
