The number of terms in this German-English part is approximately 75,000 which is considerably more than in the English-German dictionary. In preparing this edition the terminology of the English-German volume has been revised according to medical and lexicological demands and verified by consulting modern German medical literature. Some new terms and parts of the IUPAC nomenclature have been added. In some cases comments received concerning the English-German part have been considered and appropriate modifications made. The following fields are covered: Pre-clinical medicine: anatomy; histology; embryology; physiology; pathophysiology; pathology; biochemistry; genetics; pharmacology; and toxicology.Clinical medicine: internal medicine (cardiology and angiology; pulmonology; gastroenterology; nephrology; haematology; infectious diseases; rheumatology; metabolic diseases; endocrinology; gerontology; allergology; immunology); surgery; urology; traumatology; anaesthesiology; otorhinolaryngology; gynaecology and obstetrics; paediatrics; neurology and psychiatry; ophthalmology; stomatology; microbiology (bacteriology and bacteriological diagnosis; serology; virology; protozoology; helminthology; mycology; epidemiology); dermatology and venereology; radiology and nuclear medicine; forensic medicine; occupational medicine; general hygiene and social medicine; clinical chemistry and laboratory diagnostics. This should be a useful, practical reference for all who come into contact with English and German medical literature. It may be welcomed not only by translators and interpreters of medical texts, physicians (in research and in clinical practice) and specialists, but also by paramedical professionals and students of many disciplines.
