Burrows pointed out that autopsies are expensive and that they consume a considerable amount of the pathologist's time. I agree with these premises but I disagree with his suggestion that the solution is the selection of "clinically puzzling" cases for study, while excluding...
The Pathology Annual (1975) is an anthology of review articles of interest to the pathologist, all carefully written, with extensive references. Lengthy speculations and presentation of esoteric research material are avoided, allowing the reader an unencumbered view of the current concepts.
