2014 BMA Medical Book Awards 1st Prize Award Winner in Student Textbook category and Highly Commended in Pathology category!
Underwood's Pathology (formerly General and Systematic Pathology) is an internationally popular and highly acclaimed textbook, written and designed principally for students of medicine and the related health sciences. Pathology is presented in the context of modern cellular and molecular biology and contemporary clinical practice. After a clear introduction to basic principles, it provides comprehensive coverage of disease mechanisms and the pathology of specific disorders ordered by body system. An unrivalled collection of clinical photographs, histopathology images and graphics complement the clear, concise text.
For this sixth edition, the entire book has been revised and updated. Well liked features to assist problem-based learning - including body diagrams annotated with signs, symptoms and diseases and a separate index of common clinical problems - have been retained and refereshed.
Additional value is provided by the complementary online version - hosted on studentconsult.com - which includes the complete, fully searchable text, downloadable images, clinical case studies and a revised, interactive self-assessment section to check your understanding and aid exam preparation. This all combines to make Underwood's an unsurpassed learning package in this fascinating and most central medical specialty.

Reviews of previous edition:
Underwood's pathology is a very concise and yet full guide through the progression of diseases. It is fantastic for PBL because it gives you a basic pathological outline and explains the technical terminology as it goes. It uses some good clear flow diagrams and very memorable pictures to hammer the point home. I find it has a perfect level of detail for first and second year. Histological changes in tissues are also included which cuts down on research time. It also finds space to include other aspects of illness such as aetiology and recent advances in the field. The layout into pathologies of each body system makes the book easy to use effectively. Any time where there is reference made to another part of the book a page number is provided. The index is well detailed and accurate. It is very easy to read as the sentences are short and to the point, and paragraphs broken up by tables and diagrams. - Medical Student, University of Glasgow
