Topographic anatomy is the discipline that studies the macroscopic morphology, the localization, the position, the orientation, the relationships of the organs and their projection on precise areas of the body surface in order to provide the doctor and the surgeon with all the anatomical information necessary for the clinical exploration of the patient and for the surgical approach of the organs through the superficial planes of the body. Thus, topographic anatomy arises from the need to create a practical synthesis of the morphological information of human anatomy, which therefore requires knowledge. The clinical references, useful at a medical and surgical level, provide key information from a practical point of view, such as projections, relationships and landmarks, surgical access routes, indications for the inspection and some outlines of the main diseases that may affect the region. The abundance and richness of the iconographic material, created to facilitate the understanding and memorization of the most significant anatomical information, make this text a useful integration for the study of Human Anatomy. This original text of the Italian anatomical school is characterized by essentiality, practicality and alignment with the current trends in teaching for students of the new millennium.
