About the Book
This trusted book teaches you the presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment of the most important diseases seen in medical practice and tested on national examinations. Each chapter first describes the symptoms of its diseases and the usual diagnostic approaches. There is then a review of the structure and function of the organ necessary to understand its pathology. Each disease is described by its presentation, pathophysiology, and natural history. There is special emphasis on explaining how testing is used to identify key pathophysiologic abnormalities.
This unique integration of patient signs and symptoms with testing and pathophysiology will give the student an understanding of the “whys” behind both illness and treatment. It is the product of over 3 decades of the author’s clinical practice and a decade of teaching medical students, with an emphasis on preparation for the Step examinations.
This approach is not an attempt to be an exhaustive review of disease but rather the core knowledge that all doctors should have mastered. In doing this, it provides a framework for learning medicine from a patient-centered perspective.
This unique integration of patient signs and symptoms with testing and pathophysiology will give the student an understanding of the “whys” behind both illness and treatment.
The book stands out due to its distinctive approach of combining patient symptoms and signs with diagnostic testing and pathophysiology. This method aids students and readers in grasping not just the outward expression of diseases but also the fundamental reasons behind these manifestations. The book’s focus on elucidating the “whys” behind illness and treatment distinguishes it, offering a more profound understanding of the relationships between clinical expressions and the underlying pathophysiological irregularities.
