These books will be invaluable resources for residents and students, as well as a useful reference for practitioners.

The Oxford American Handbook of Clinical Diagnosis provides concise, practical assistance in interpreting a patient's symptoms, enabling students and clinicians to arrive at a confident diagnosis.

The main differential diagnoses for each finding are given along with evidence that would indicate the diagnosis is correct plus information on further confirmatory tests.
