The most comprehensive resource of macroscopic images of human diseases

With more than 1000 macroscopic images of common human diseases, Gross Morphology of Common Diseases is an indispensable resource for undergraduate medical students, pathology trainees and practising physicians. Each image is accompanied by a concise legend that outlines the most important clinical and pathological information, helping clinicians of all specializations to formulate differential diagnoses.

These images are drawn from several institutions, including the vast collection of McGill’s Department of Pathology, a world leader in pathology education that sees more than 100,000 surgical cases each year.

  • Diseases of the skull, brain, pituitary gland, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves
