These 85 case presentations concern spinal cord injury, pain, stroke management, head injury, amputee management, and joint, spine, and neuromuscular diseases. They encourage readers to consider differential diagnosis and formulate treatment plans. Designed for independent study and board review, each chapter works like a flash card<-->each case is introduced with a descriptive heading, followed by a pertinent history, physical examination findings, and laboratory or radiological data; the answer appears on the following page, with a discussion of the disease process, differential diagnosis, and injury or disease management. Lennard teaches medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Arkansas. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
