Volume 30, Issue 2 (April 1985)
A Review of Clinical Toxicology
This is the third edition of Professors Poison's Clinical Toxicology. Many forensic toxicologists and pathologists are familiar with the first edition published in 1959, and coauthored by Dr. R. N. Tattersall. The second edition was published in 1969 and reprinted several times. Dr. Tattersall has since died, and Drs. Green and Lee, of the departments of forensic medicine and clinical pharmacology, respectively, have contributed to this edition. Forensic scientists not familiar with the earlier editions may find the title misleading and assume the book is concerned solely with the diagnosis and treatment of poisoning. Nothing could be further from the truth. In addition to symptoms and treatment, distribution and elimina- tion, autopsy findings in fatal cases, and illustrative cases are often given.
