This book is a concise textbook of iatrogenic pathology. Chapters cover iatrogenesis relevant to a broad range of medical subspecialties (cardiology, gastroenterology, gynecology, neurology, endocrinology and much more). The book presents an introduction to iatrogenesis which is followed by chapter-wise descriptions of iatrogenic lesions (lesions due to adverse drug reactions, lesions occurring during diagnosis and consequences of various therapeutic interventions) of the organs and systems of the body.

This textbook is a handy resource on iatrogenic pathology for medical students and working professionals (clinical and nursing staff) involved in a range of medical subspecialties.


The Textbook of Iatrogenic Pathology represents a trans disciplinary collection of the main effects of drugs and medical interventions encountered in daily practice. It is edited by two pathologists with significant experience in autopsy who are also teaching the under- and postgraduate students in field of iatrogenic pathology.

The book is split in two parts. The first part that comprises 13 chapters was mainly synthesized by pathologists based on the literature data and practical aspects observed during daily autopsies. In the 6 chapters of the second part, the doctors involved in the clinical practice have presented the specific aspects of their surgical or medical specialties.

This book is a necessity for all persons involved in the patient’s care, from student to Professor and represents at the moment the largest collection of aspects related to iatrogenic pathology. It is an original and complex book that include the newest aspect of iatrogenesis. It is always important to learn all our life not only from direct/positive evidences, but also from missing facts or/and medical errors.

I strongly recommend publication of the Textbook of Iatrogenic Pathology as a necessity for awareness of medical staff in the field of consequences of the medical facts.
