Deodhare SG. General pathology and pathology of Systems (An integrated approach to pathology, microbiology and clinical pathology) Part I & II, Sixth edition, 2002, Tarun Enterprises, Delhi and Popular Prakashan Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, Rs.895.00
In the era of superspecialities with increasing trend towards writing elaborately on single topics, Dr Deodhars' 6th edition of the above referenced book comes like a breath of fresh air. This time-tested book not only has helped the undergraduate students but can also be used by post-graduate students. With more than 50 chapters and 300 illustrations, the author has extensively covered the clinical features, gross and the microscopic features of various disease processes, exemplified by the addition of flowcharts. Some of the pictures, especially the gross photographs of specimens, do not appear clear in the black and white shades. It would be worthwhile to add a few color pictures or introduce color plates to the text book to highlight the important features which would make it more appealing to the readers. The chapter on hemopathology and endocrine pathology add the desired new dimensions to the book. By introducing the new topic like transgenic mice and cloning in the chapter of genetic basis of the disease, the author has narrowed the gap between the past present and the future.
In summary, the book as most of the readers are already aware, is simple, and student- friendly which would benefit the undergraduate students of many disciplines of medicine.
