The 4th edition of the Avian Histopathology is available for download now. The new edition has about 650 pages that include 2005 colored pictures.
Avian Histopathology 4th Edition
Several chapters in this edition have been revised by incorporating new information and adding new images. As in previous editions, the book maintains the organization of chapters by organ systems, which provides a systemic approach to avian histopathology. Lesions associated with specific diseases and conditions in different organs and tissues are described.
This is the 4th edition of Avian Histopathology. Avian pathology is considered a distinct discipline within the field of veterinary pathology as birds have organs not found in mammals, or lack organs that are found in mammals. Many avian organs and tissues have distinct cellular composition and histological architecture. Normal histology can vary with the species of bird and state of physiologic development and function. The response of avian tissues to injuries, as well as the dynamics and progression of lesions, while having some similarities, can be fundamentally different from those in mammals. Of course, birds have their own infectious and non-infectious diseases.
Thus, training in avian histopathology is necessary for optimal evaluation of the microscopic appearance of avian organs and tissues. Histopathologic changes often can be correlated with gross lesions and clinical signs that may help in understanding the pathogenesis of a disease. We hope that Avian Histopathology will continue to serve the needs of veterinary pathologists and diagnosticians as an aid for recognizing and interpreting histopathological changes in organs and tissues of birds.

Several chapters in this edition have been revised by incorporating new information and adding new images. As in previous editions, the book maintains the organization of chapters by organ systems, which provides a systemic approach to avian histopathology. Lesions associated with specific diseases and conditions in different organs and tissues are described. In each chapter, the format of grouping figures by etiology is continued.
It is worth remembering that lesion development is a dynamic process. For any disease condition, the extent and severity of the changes in tissues vary from case to case, or even among areas within the same organ. The authors have attempted to use images that show typical lesions and key histomorphological features of avian diseases. The images, with few exceptions, are from the collections of the authors. Material received from others is acknowledged in the figure legends.
Books are not perfect, and no one should expect them to be. Attempting to write a comprehensive book without missing any errors is probably impossible and unrealistic, but it is worth the effort. Our goal is to make this book an informative and valuable source of information for veterinary pathologists and diagnosticians involved with avian cases. We would welcome feedback from those who use the book.
