The scope of this 15-20-volume set encompasses the entire field of pathology ranging from general pathological terms to specific diseases to diagnostic methods. Published as a print edition and online version (eReference) in the Springer Reference Program, each volume contains homogenously structured entries.
A team of international experts guarantee that the essays and definitions are scientifically sound. The A-Z format allows searching for a word in case the reader does not know to which pathological speciality the term belongs.
The major advantage of the encyclopedia is manner in which it makes relevant information available not only to pathologists, but to all clinicians and researchers of the neighbouring disciplines working with pathologists who might wish to look up terms online.
