Contents:
General concepts of disease: principles of diagnosis -- Cells and tissues: their structure and function in health and disease -- Genes, DNA, chromosomes, and cell division -- Congenital and hereditary diseases -- Inflammation and repair -- Immunity, hypersensitivity, allergy, and autoimmune diseases -- Neoplastic disease -- Pathogenic microorganisms -- Parasitic disease -- Communicable disease control and sexually transmitted disease -- The cardiovascular system -- Diseases of blood circulation -- The hematopoietic and lymphatic systems -- Abnormalities of blood coagulation -- The respiratory system -- The breast -- The female reproductive system -- Prenatal development and conditions associated with pregnancy -- The urinary system and fluid homeostasis -- The male reproductive system -- The liver and the biliary system -- The pancreas and diabetes mellitus -- The gastrointestinal tract -- The endocrine glands -- The nervous system -- The musculoskeletal system.
Summary: "Since Dr. Crowley last updated the Ninth Edition there was an increased emphasis on how changes in the genome are expressed as disease and the new authors did a very heavy 10th edition revision covering the larger role in both diagnosis and therapy. While Dr. Crowley's organization of the text was preserved, starting with six general chapters followed by chapters on organ systems and their diseases, more information was provided on the cellular and molecular roots of disease. Because of the heavy revision done for the 10th edition, the focus on the 11th edition will be on addressing any missing information as identified by the reviewers and solidifying the product package and adding mini video lectures that the author is creating. however, in some instances, the authors did raise the level of content a bit too high so they will be evaluating these areas as identified by reviewers"--
