An excellent rapid review for course exams and USMLE Step 1, MedMaps for Pathophysiology contains 102 concept maps of disease processes and mechanisms. The book is organized by organ system and includes classic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and congestive heart failure, as well as complex diseases such as lupus and HIV.

Each concept map is arranged to visually capture and clarify the relationships between various aspects of each disease, such as biochemical and genetic causes and responses. Laboratory values are included where appropriate. The page layout allows ample space for students to add comments and notes.
