Random Passage: "At higher power the tumor cells are seen within minute vascular spaces. The effect of such tumor, especially that in perivascular lymph spaces, is to cause thrombosis of the adjacent blood vessels which are for the most part aterioles and small arteries."
Notes: A college-level textbook intended for the student who wants to learn the effects of disease on the human body. Chandler's book is a comprehensive yet general-interest overview for students who haven't picked one particular aspect of the subject to study. Contains lots of photos (not too many gross ones, however).
