This book provides core knowledge for doctors and medical students. It describes the most common and important diseases and conditions, and links that information to the symptoms, signs, pathology investigations, imaging, and treatment. 19 body systems are covered.

Otherwise, the task of a doctor becomes much too complicated, remembering 12,000 diseases, 8,000 drugs, and 10,000 treatments.

If the medical course teaches knowledge, skills, and attitudes, this book attempts to cover some of the knowledge, and a bit of the decision-making skills. If it succeeds, thinking should be clearer, work easier, and diagnosis and treatment better.


  • Brings disease pathology into a manageable perspective. Must have for medical students.

    By Dr Honest Review
    Having been through a variety of books during my studies covering pathological basis and process of diseases, Peter Scally’s book provides a refreshing approach to an area of medicine which students can get overwhelmed with. Highly recommend it to students, and PGY1-2 medical officers.
