The primary aim of this book is to provide guidance in the study of histologic slides of the pathology course. For this reason we are following the outlines of the pathology course; the topic is divided into two parts, a general and a special pathology section. The book also presents examples of histologic slides which are part of the pathology course for medical and dental students. We are introducing pathologic entities which are characteristic and should assist in more effective learning of the theoretical part of the course. However, space does not permit the presentation of many important lesions. The explanatory text includes the definition of individual pathologic entities, a brief description of the gross findings followed by an analysis of the m icroscopic changes, sometimes in greater detail than seen on the microphotographs. Where needed, microphotos of lower and higher magnification have been provided. Beside the standard hematoxylin-eosin stain we have used, where particularly helpful, special stains. For better orientation, certain microscopic structures have been pointe out by letters. We hope that this book will accomplish its goal and will not only guide the students in their laboratory course but will also supplement the pathology textbook."
