This book is based on a series of lectures in general pathology and bacteriology given to medical students after completion of their physiology and biochemistry courses and just preceding their clinical work. Stress is laid on the fundamental changes that take place in the body in response to injury. Present-day views about the nature of those changes are discussed. An effort is made to stimulate in the mind of the student an experimental outlook for clinical medicine and surgery. This second edition has been revised and rearranged, and additional chapters on thrombosis, metabolic changes after injury, atherosclerosis, and tumors have been added to make the book more complete. Fourteen authors, in addition to the editor, have contributed special chapters. The authors' aims have been well accomplished, and there is excellent coverage of all aspects of general pathology and bacteriology. The altered physiology in anatomic pathological changes is considered in detail.
