This comprehensive book, illustrated with over 700 colour pictures, addresses the subject of bone in internal medicine. It is based on biopsies of bone and first describes the normal range of physiological findings in iliac crest biopsies in young, middle-aged and elderly individuals. The book then deals systematically with the osseous disorders most frequently encountered in internal medicine, and some that would be considered in differential diagnosis. Numerous up-to-date references are included. The clinical applications of biopsies of bone are emphasized as well as their clinical interpretation; sections on histomorphometry and functional aspects of bone cells are also included. The book should be of particular interest to specialists in internal medicine, endocrinology, nephrology, haematology and oncology, as well as being a bench manual for the practising pathologist.
