Pathology of the Lung Summary

Pathology of the Lung: Excluding Pulmonary Tuberculosis by H. Spencer

This unique reference book has been completely revised and updated to cover the whole field of pulmonary pathology. For the first time pulmonary tuberculosis and Legionnaire's Disease are included: all the other chapters have been substantially revised with many new photographs added. Professor Spencer's book is internationally acknowledged as the leading reference work in this area. Since the book has been compiled by one author, it avoids the poor continuity and inconsistencies of style which mar many multi-author works. It is a standard reference work which should be found in every medical library, and on the professional bookshelves of specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of lung disorders.
