TEXTBOOK OF GENERAL PATHOLOGY. Br Med J PDF extract preview. This is a PDF-only article. The first page of the PDF of this article appears above. This book is intended to be a textbook of general pathology for health science standardized textbooks for health science students in Ethiopia to tackle the. Harsh Mohan Textbook of Pathology has been fully revised to provide the most up to date information on the latest developments in the field.

At the same time, they have a unique opportunity to see, from the example set by their teacher, on how the same material can be approached from two points of view, and presented in two formats.

The old adage, that you have never learned anything unless you have seen it at least from two sides, is clearly illustrated here.

For the students of medicine the message is clear: if you understand the material presented in both the shorter and the longer version you can be assured that you know your Pathology inside out; and you are ready for the final examination and clinical training.

Question 5: Do I have to know all that is in this book for my final examination? Answer: No!!

This is the most common question my students ask me and I hope that you believe me when I say that you do not have to know it all. First of all, neither I nor Professor Mohan know it all.

Second, few of us have photographic memory and infinite storage space in our brains and thus even theoretically, very few of us could learn this book by heart. I can assure you that the book was not written for those geniuses, but for the average persons like most of us.

Third, your goal should not be to memorize all the facts listed in the textbook, but rather to understand the main concepts. The more details you know, the deeper your understanding of the basic concepts will be. Memorizing the details without the understanding of concepts that hold them together is not something that I would recommend.

The beauty of it all is that you can decide for yourself how deep to dig in, when to stop, what to keep and memorize, and what to eliminate. And remember, deciding on what to eliminate is almost as important as choosing what to retain. As the educational gurus teach us, that is the gist of what they call active learning.

And to repeat again, this Textbook is ideally suited for that approach. At the end, let me repeat how excited I was perusing this excellent book. I hope that you will be similarly excited and I hope that it will inspire in you enthusiasm for Pathology. Remember also the words of the great clinician William Osler, one of the founders of modern medicine in late 19th and early 20th Century, who said that our clinical practice will be only as good as our understanding of Pathology.


I hope that I have answered most of the questions that you might have had while opening this book. For the last ten years he has been on the Faculty of the University of Kansas School of Medicine dividing his time between teaching, practice of surgical pathology and medical publishing.

He is the author of more than biomedical articles, and has written or edited more than 20 medical books.

The overwhelming success and all-round acceptance of the last edition of the textbook was very encouraging and quite stimulating but at the same time put an onerous responsibility and expectation to do better in the new edition than the best of last edition. In preparing 6th revised edition of my Textbook of Pathology, I pursued this goal with profound enthusiasm and passionate zeal.

I am, thus, pleased to present to users a wholly transformed appearance and updated contents in the revised edition. While full colour printing had been introduced in the last edition 5 years back maturing the book into an international edition, the present redesigned and revised edition has utlilised the contemporary technological advances in its full form in illustrations, lay-out and in printing.

The revised edition has almost thrice the number of illustrations of large number of common diseases placed along with the text, and it is hoped that it will enhance understanding and learning of the subject readily, besides being a visual treat. In recent times, advances in genetics, immunology and molecular biology have heightened our understanding of the mechanisms of diseases.

Some of the Key Features of the Sixth Edition are as follows: Thorough Textual Revision and Updating: All the chapters and topics have undergone thorough revision and updating of various aspects, including contemporary diagnostic modalities.

The Skin Chapter Question 4: What are the most salient features of this textbook?

Judging from the book at hand, Professor Mohan whom I do not know personally is not only a clear thinker, but he must be also an exceptionally talented teacher. I think reading Harsh Mohan during UG days is more than enough. For the Sixth Edition, Dr Mohan has partially restructured the book, substantially revised it, and updated the text wherever it was necessary. Application of biotechnology in plant disease management — Importance, production of pathogen free plants through tissue culture techniques.

Even though there were no specific instructions attached to the request, I assumed that I should address my notes primarily to undergraduate and graduate students of Pathology.
