This handbook is intended to guide the pathologist in the identification of congenital malformations of the heart at the autopsy table. There is a brief section on the method of opening, dissecting, and examining the heart. There is then a section on abnormalities of individual parts of the heart as they are encountered in dissection, briefly describing the abnormalities. The third part of the book is devoted to pathological complexes and how they may be recognized at autopsy.
The diagrams are good. All of the illustrations are black and white, and would be more useful in color. Embryology is discussed
