    An engaging case-based approach to learning the diagnostic process in internal medicine

    Each chapter is built around a common patient complaint that illustrates essential concepts and provides insight into the process by which the differential diagnosis is identified.

    Coverage for each disease includes:

    • A concise statement of the common or classic presentation of the particular disease
    • The most pertinent epidemiologic and pathophysiologic information for the disease
    • Evidence-Based Diagnosis: reviews the accuracy of the history, physical exam, laboratory and radiologic tests for the disease. In this unique section, the author points out the findings that help you “rule in” or “rule out” the various diseases.
    • Treatment: details the basics of therapy for the disease discussed

    Filled with algorithms, summary tables, and questions that direct evaluation in the clinical encounter.
