This series is different from any other similar book currently on the market.
The images are of uniformly high quality, and the text is eminently readable.
It is a good reference text for trainees and practitioners in all fields of Medicine, Nursing, Medical Science, Allied Health.
The subject matter is the result of a professional lifetime from 1960, of collecting data and photographs of the medical records of patients, and the pathology from which they suffered.
The author has had a role in the diagnosis, and often the treatment, of many of the cases.
This increases the authenticity of the book.
Historical anecdotes about the diseases, and the people who described them, are liberally sprinkled throughout the book.
Many of the diseases are presented with photographs of the medical records of the cases used by the doctors to define the diseases. For example:
- Kuru by Carlton Gajdusek, for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize.
- Amoebic meningitis by Malcolm Fowler and Rodney Carter.
- Q fever by Edward Derrick.
- Pigbel by Robin A Cooke.
Most textbooks show only the high magnification view of the organisms. This book shows how the pathologist examines the slides to ‘find’ the organisms.
Diseases that occur in specific areas of the world where they are endemic are illustrated.
Examples of these diseases when they occur in travellers or immigrants in a non-endemic environment. Under these circumstances, the medical practitioners of first contact have had no experience of these diseases, and therefore have difficulty in making a correct diagnosis.
Some technical aspects that have been included by the designer - an index is supplied after the Introduction.
By clicking on the topic to be examined, it immediately takes the reader to the topic.
At the end of the topic there is an icon to click that immediately returns the reader to the index.
There are a few short video clips of moving organisms.

Use is concurrent users – the actual number of users accessing the content at any one (1) time. For example, a single user is one concurrent user and for multiple use will be based on concurrent usage or log-ins. This is best managed by the library management or we can supply a DRM version to specify usage and rights. We provide an open PDF file and rely on the library’s user management system to manage access as required.
Licence purchase is for a single site with the specific number of users. A five-user licence is for a single site with a maximum of 5 concurrent users.
Licence time frame is 5 years with renewal. The licence will be renewed or stopped after 5 years.
User is defined as a log-in access at a particular time so 5 users are accessing at the same time.
