Lange Pathology Flash Cards, Third Edition

  • Complete coverage of all major topics covered in medical school pathology courses
  • Each disease-specific card features a clinical vignetteand details of the disorder, including:
    • Etiology and epidemiology
    • Pathologic or histologic findings
    • Classic clinical presentations
    • Current medical treatments
  • Perfect for disease comparisons


When we began to prepare for the USMLE Step 1 early in our second year at Yale Medical School, we discovered
that a myriad of sources was available for pathology review but none that were both comprehensive and organized
in a fashion conducive to repetitive review. We found that the material in many of the resources was presented
in outline form, which failed to organize the etiology, pathology, clinical findings, and treatment options of each
disease in a consistent manner. Although we used the most highly rated pathology reviews, we still found ourselves
combining information from multiple sources to create a more comprehensive and convenient review tool.
Lange Pathology Flash Cards are the result of our trials and tribulations while trying to learn pathology
and review the subject for the boards. These cards offer the most complete, concise, and relevant high-yield
information for the major diseases tested on the USMLE Step 1 and in the second-year pathology course. The

content covers the most current and board-relevant information that can otherwise only be found by combin-
ing the content of several review sources. In this second edition, we have added more, up-to-date high-yield

disease processes and key information that is currently being tested on the Step 1.
We are excited to present this high-yield pathology content in a format designed for active review. Each
card provides a structured presentation of a specific disease and allows students to easily compare and contrast
diseases. The introductory cards for each system describe the basic physiologic and/or pathophysiologic principles
of the relevant structures and organs. Each disease-specific card contains both a clinical vignette and the
characteristics of the disorder. The vignette appears on the front side of the card and frames the pertinent
information in the context of a clinical application. The reverse side of the card includes information related
to the etiology and epidemiology of the disease; classical or defining pathologic, pathophysiologic, or histologic


findings; clinical manifestations, classical presentations, and current medical treatments; and pearls. In
addition, the most salient features of each disease are highlighted in bold throughout each card for rapid review
We would suggest using these cards as an adjunct to your pathology course materials early in your second
year. Familiarizing yourself with these cards as you tackle your course will be immensely helpful to you during
your Step 1 review. We would like to encourage you to jot down your own notes in the margins and make

these cards your personal pathology review. We also encourage you to make your own cards for low-yield con-
ditions that you identify.

We hope that this second edition of the Lange Pathology Flash Cards will help prepare you for the boards
and serve as a resource that will bridge your basic pathology knowledge with the clinical aspects of disease
that you will soon be encountering firsthand on the wards.
Best of luck with Step 1, and feel free to contact us with any suggestions to improve this study tool in the
next edition.
