In this new edition of A Clinical Approach to Medicine, the editor has assembled a panel of leading clinicians and researchers, and reorganized the material in the key areas of medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, neurology, oncology, rheumatology, renal medicine and respiratory medicine. This book is unique -- it reflects the experience of leading experts on patterns of disease in the Asia-Pacific region. There are several other similar books, but those are by authors from the West and therefore offer a different perspective. The book also includes discussions on genetic diseases, infection and antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics, highlighting local incidences and statistics. Each chapter starts with the basic concepts of a particular topic and gradually develops the theme to present the state of the art in the topic. With its focus on practices unique to Asia-Pacific, this book is a must for the student, practicing clinician and research scientist interestedin the latest developments in this part of the world.
