The Principles of Pathology

Nature volume 85, page 4 (03 November 1910) | Download Citation



THIS second volume of Prof. Adami's great work on the science of pathology deals with systemic pathology—the pathology of the individual tissues and organs of the body, or special pathology, as it is often termed—and has been written in conjunction with his colleague, Prof. Nicholls. In the preface the authors offer an (unneeded) apology for the bulkiness of the first volume on general pathology (reviewed in NATURE of November 25, 1909, vol. Ixxxii., p. 94), and the relative brevity of this second volume, for marry would consider that special pathology requires at least double the space devoted to general pathology. They point out however, that, provided the student has acquired a good grasp of general pathology, he has but to apply those principles in order to become possessed of a sound basis of special pathology, a proposition with which we are in complete agreement.
