Dr. Hirsch states: "Readers should remember that this text is not one in either general or special pathology, although both are fundamental." The volume was written not only for pathologists but for surgeons and surgical residents, even surgical residents in the various specialties.

The material from 11 separate fields includes: the respiratory system, the digestive system, the urinary system, the female reproductive system, the male reproductive system, the nervous system, the liver, gallbladder, and spleen, the ductus glands, and the skin.
