Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Heather Huang, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health)
Description: This is an image-based book designed to provide a visual library of common findings in the primary care (inpatient and outpatient) setting. It is organized by body part, and teaching points are made through clinical vignettes and board-style questions.
Purpose: The book uses an extensive collection of photographs as an interactive way to make concise teaching points. Photographs are chosen to represent distinct physical exam findings that medical students or residents may see in the wards or during their clinical rotations. Clinical vignettes are structured around the photographs and aim to provide not only a description of disease and pathology, but also of treatment and treatment approach as well.
Audience: Medical students, residents, and primary care providers are the intended audience.
Features: A wide variety of notable physical exam findings is covered. The book is organized by body part (e.g. scalp, neck, hand, leg, etc.) and includes common, uncommon, and unique pathology. It delivers each teaching point concisely through the use of clinical vignettes. It discusses the etiology of, diagnostic approach to, and treatment of each case. The cases are accompanied by one or more photographs of exceptional quality that illustrate physical exam findings.
Assessment: This book offers a stunning collection of photographs of distinct physical exam findings that may be seen in a primary care setting. The photographs could be larger, but they effectively convey pathology. Teaching points are short, concise, and well conveyed. The board style questions provide an additional interactive feature through which the reader can solidify the information.
