This multimedia resource is intended to ‘bridge the gap’ between normal anatomy and pathology texts and clinically-oriented resources. This resource is intended to provide the science behind the disease that a health care professional is managing and an explanation of the signs and symptoms a patient is experiencing. Each disease begins with a review of normal anatomy, histology and physiology – followed by the changes the disease has on the tissue (histopathology or anatomic pathology), organ (gross pathology), and function (pathophysiology).
