Updated to keep pace with the many changes in the field, Crowley's An Introduction to Human Disease, Eleventh Edition provides readers with a clear, well-illustrated explanation of the structural and functional changes associated with disease, the clinical manifestations of disease, and how to determine treatment. It reflects current information on the pathogenesis of infectious disease and how changes in the genome are expressed as disease.

The first chapters of the text discuss general concepts and diseases affecting the body as a whole. Later chapters consider the various organ systems and their diseases. The Eleventh Edition includes new content on COVID-19, Zika virus, brain-eating amoebas, plus mini podcasts to address difficult concepts such as cancer and the use of microscope slides.
