Crystal-clear and easy-to-read, this popular text focuses on the essential pathophysiology, diagnoses, and management of the most common clinical situations. The Fifth Edition updates all diagnostic and therapeutic information and increases the number of illustrations and x-rays. Detailed coverage of when to hospitalize a patient can be found in the management sections of each chapter. The STD and HIV/AIDS chapters have been heavily modified for this edition, and there is also expanded coverage of genetics, geriatrics, and transplantation. A must have for medical students and residents.
