The idea for this dictionary on medical terms originated as an extension to the reference books that V&S Publishers has brought out on physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, general science, economics, and commerce. These dictionaries will serve as a side-table reference tool for medical students, healthcare workers, paramedics and professionals, and as a first-hand home medical guide for anyone seeking to understand the meaning of terms used in medical science. This illustrated dictionary contains over 10,000 authoritative entries covering all aspects of medical science and practice. It covers all important terms used in medicine including pharmacology, obstetrics & gynaecology, and psychology & psychiatry, in simple language. For easy reference terms have been arranged alphabetically in a Jargon-free style.
