Overview

Now in its second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Diagnosis has become the leading guide to making confident diagnoses. Each symptom, sign and initial test result is accompanied by a differential diagnosis and advice on preliminary tests. The information is laid out in a way that aids pattern recognition on a double page spread, so that you can scan them quickly to see what diagnosis would apply best, what further evidence is required and what treatments to begin. The book also provides a detailed description of the basis of logical evidence-based differential diagnosis. This new edition includes more symptoms, signs and differentials, initial management for each diagnosis, preliminary tests, and a new chapter on dermatology.
