Ultrastructural Pathology, Second Edition is a comprehensive reference on electron microscopy of pathologic tissue in animals and humans. The text bridges the gap between what is seen in the electron microscope at the cellular level with what the pathologist encounters in the postmortem room. It explains and integrates all aspects of ultrastructural pathology in human and animal tissue occurring from natural and experimental disease. This new edition has been improved with a more comparative focus and expanded coverage on infectious diseases and tumors.
"The reorganization of the book, with complete tables of infectious agents and updated references, and the addition of illustrations to display complex cellular processes contribute to the book's value as a reference text. I highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for students, researchers, pathologists, and veterinary health-care professionals."

"This atlas has something for everyone: the student preparing for pathology boards, the bench pathologist, the diagnostician, and the toxicologic pathologist, just to name a few. This book, like the first edition, will be the gold standard desk reference for anyone who needs to interpret or confirm cellular changes from surgical or postmortem lesions."
