Every single word of the Pathology book of Kaplan is super high yield
Don't miss any line or any word.
In fact, if you have time then you must supplement your patho preparation with Goljan audio or Rapid review book.
Once again, every thing is high yield.

I agree with Aviram,

Almost every topic in Pathology is a high yield. This is because over 40% of questions are going to be pathology or pathophysiology.

Check this thread about questions distribution

However, if you insist then here's the Kaplan chapters that I think are super high yield:
  • Inflammation
  • Vascular/Cardiac
  • Renal
  • GIT
  • Hematology (chapters of RBC/WBC/Myeloid Neoplasms)
  • Endocrine
  • CNS
