Presented in an easy to use format, each case includes a scenario with patient data - laboratory results, images or ECGs - to reflect the clinical situation. The reader is encouraged to answer questions and explanatory answers follow overleaf. Answers cover clinical thinking, differential diagnoses and key points to remember.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Birgit Khandalavala, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This is a compilation of 100 common general medicine clinical presentations with a few unusual cases. The book is arranged in a unique question and answer format.
Purpose: The authors present common problems encountered in general practice for students interested in clinical medicine, so this serves as a useful review for busy clinicians.
Audience: The text is written with the student in mind. However, many residents and practicing physicians will find the case-based approach informative and challenging. The authors are all noted professors.
Features: Various common and a few uncommon cases of clinical presentations are presented. These cases are broad based, covering all general areas. The case presentation format is succinct, with key points highlighted for added emphasis and the answers. The random arrangement mimics "real life" clinical presentations. Units of measurement mentioned in the text are not familiar and some photos are not clear.
Assessment: This is a handy book for clinical students to review case presentations with answers covering differential diagnosis, typical clinical findings, and pertinent laboratory, x-ray, ECG findings, and useful key points. The book is good for an introduction, as well as review, of clinical medicine in all of its many facets.
