Fifty case studies are presented in this book, which proivdes the presentation, the resolution and the basic science related to each specific case. The accompanying video sequence allows the reader to hear and see the patient, providing the 'next best thing' to bedside teaching. Through the direct observation of the patient, information is retained more easily than through a traditional textbook format and gives a human interest to the case studies in a way that has never been done before.
For preclinical medical students (USMLE Step 1 and UK undergraduates), the basic science involved in each case will be of importance; while at higher levels, in the clinical years and postgraduate study (MRCP, MRCS, USMLE Steps 2 and 3), the clinical aspects of the cases will be of great value with the basic science used for revision.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
