Recognizing Clinical Patterns: Clues to a Timely Diagnosis
Mark A. Marinella
Hanley & Belfus, 2002 - Medical - 257 pages
This unique book presents the reader with a variety of concise vignettes, listing symptoms, signs, and brief supplemental data that point directly to a specific diagnosis. Key points of historical, lab, and physical finding follow each pattern, and an illustration is often included. An ideal tool for expanding diagnostic acumen and reducing reliance on medical testing, and great for rotations or preparation for the vignette-based USMLE examinations.
