Description of Muir’s Textbook of Pathology 15th Edition

Muir’s Textbook of Pathology 15th Edition written by David A Levison ebook for pathology study available in (PDF) to get a free download. This is the 15th Edition of Muir’s Textbook of Pathology, building upon the work of previous editions. Different numbers of ways from previous editions, but we think it is similar enough to retain the traditional values of its predecessors. We trust and have produced a text that will be useful both to undergraduate and postgraduates medical students who are interested in having a better understanding of disease upon which to base either their research, clinical practice or both.

This 15th edition of Muir’s textbook of pathology differs in the balance between systematic and general pathology from most earlier editions, with the general section being relatively shorter. What we have tried to do is to focus on the most clinically relevant basic science & we have included some of that in the systematic chapters where its relevance is hopefully easier to appreciate.

We have also introduced into almost every chapter one or two special study topics where the information provided is rather more than most medical educators would include in the core curriculum of a medical undergraduate course. This is intended to interest and stimulate the best students to appreciate that undergraduate education is just the beginning of a window on the exciting and challenging world of disease. In this pathology book also included in most chapters, several case histories that add and illustrate to the information provided in the main text, in an attempt to emphasize the clinical medicine relevance to fundamental of pathology. 

By adopting this format of special study topics and case studies integrated into, but clearly distinguished from, the core text, we are adopting the approach taken to medical education in many medical schools. We, not unexpectedly, believe that the best doctors are knowledgeable about disease processes, and we hope that this belief is reflected in the level at which we have pitched the text.

It will be noted for this 15th edition of the book that for the first time ever the majority of the editors are not based in Glasgow. However, three of us are Glasgow graduates, & we all acknowledge our debt to, & the inspiration we have drawn from, our predecessors in Glasgow Pathology. We are honored to have had the opportunity to edit this latest edition of ‘Muir’ and hope that we have done justice to the task.
