Overview

A 24-year-old woman attends Rheumatology outpatients with an eight week history of painful hands. On examination she is tearful and thin. You are the medic on duty...

100 Cases in Orthopaedics and Rheumatology presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in orthopaedic and rheumatology clinics, or in the emergency department. A succinct summary of the patient's history, examination and initial investigations, with clinical and/or imaging photgraphs, is followed by questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answer includes a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate, providing an essential revision aid as well as a practical guide for students and junior doctors.

Making clinical decisions and choosing the best course of action is one of the most challenging and difficult parts of training to become a doctor. These cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important symptoms and signs and, where appropriate, their relationship to other medical conditions, and to develop their diagnostic and management skills.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book presents 100 succinct orthopedic and rheumatology case studies in an easy-to-read format, listing patient history, examinations, test results, and radiographic studies. Questions at the end of each case presentation prompt readers to consider options for diagnosis and treatment.
Purpose: The purpose is to direct readers in learning to make clinical decisions and formulate the best course of action for patients with orthopedic and rheumatologic problems.
Audience: It is written for medical students, residents, and registrars.
Features: The book is part of a series that provides a unique learning tool that works by guiding students, residents, or registrars through clinical cases. Thereby, readers are taught to recognize important orthopedic and rheumatologic symptoms and signs, their relationship to various medical conditions, and to develop their diagnostic and management skills. The accompanying laboratory results and/or radiographic studies are useful, but could be more plentiful. There are no references - they would have added value, especially for students.
Assessment: This book is useful because it is easy to read, succinct, and informative and teaches the proper approach to clinical problems. A bibliography would be helpful.
