Drs. Alfonso Lopez and Shannon Martinson are authors of a chapter in the pathology textbook, "Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease."

Dr. Alfonso López, professor emeritus, and Dr. Shannon Martinson, assistant professor, AVC’s Department of Pathology and Microbiology, are authors of a chapter in the recently published sixth edition of Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease.

Published by Elsevier, Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease is the preferred pathology textbook for DVM students in Canada, the United States, and many other countries. With over 2,100 full-color figures and illustrations, the book covers both general and systemic pathology, stressing diseases of domestic animal species and covering the mechanisms of disease development and the resulting functional and structural changes in the host.

Drs. López and Martinson wrote the chapter about the pathology of the respiratory tract, which illustrates many gross and microscopic pictures taken from routine post-mortem cases done at AVC’s Diagnostic Services. Congratulations, Drs. López and Martinson!
