The goals of this edition of “baby Robbins” remain true to
this vision of Stanley Robbins.
This is an exciting time for students of medicine because
the fundamental mechanisms of disease are being unveiled
at a breathtaking pace. Pathology is central to understanding
the molecular basis of disease, and we have tried to
capture the essence of this new knowledge in the ninth
edition of Robbins Basic Pathology. We firmly believe that
pathology forms the scientific foundation of medicine, and
advances in the basic sciences ultimately help us in understanding
diseases in the individual patient. Thus, while
many of the new discoveries in genomics and personalized
medicine are covered in the initial chapters on general
pathology, we have strived to include the impact of scientific
advances on diseases of organ systems described
throughout the text. To emphasize the importance of
disease mechanisms in the practice of medicine, we have
highlighted sections dealing with pathogenesis. In recent
years an understanding of the molecular basis of disease
has led to the development of “targeted therapies.” These
are highlighted in the form of “Targeted Therapy” boxes
in the online edition of this book. We hope that this new
the feature will provide examples of “bench-to-bedside”
medicine. Although many of the “breakthroughs” in the
the laboratory have not yet reached the bedside, we have
included them in measured “doses” so that students can
begin to experience the excitement that is ahead in their
careers.
