Part of the highly regarded Diagnostic Pathology series and written by Danny A. Milner, Jr., MD, this updated volume covers all aspects of infectious disease pathology, including anatomic manifestations and how to ensure a complete and accurate sign out at the microscope. Concise, focused chapters, supported by thousands of high-quality images, make this second edition an excellent point-of-care resource for pathologists at all levels of experience and training-both as a quick reference and as an efficient review to improve knowledge and skills.
