Case studies in general and systematic pathology
Churchill Livingstone, Jul 8, 1996 - Medical - 175 pages
A collection of 60 case studies, each presented as a common clinical problem, with some intriguing titles, including: 'He's just not himself anymore' and 'My leg gave way'. Each case history takes form of a narrative interrupted by questions with the relevant answers alongside. With its problem-based approach, it helps students appreciate the correct path to diagnosis of the pathological signs and symptoms. An excellent revision companion, each case has a revision box of key topics linked in to the main textbook so the student can refer to it for more details. Although the case studies correspond to chapters in the main textbook (three cases per chapter), the reader approaches each case as they would present in life, symptom-first. Illustrated throughout with full color gross and histopathological photographs as well as clinical photographs, radiographs and line diagrams, this book has an instant visual appeal and presents the subject in a refreshing and innovative way.
