Summary

Now in its Third Edition, this manual is an accessible, reliable source of guidance on clinical problems that are frequently encountered in the adult ambulatory care setting. More than 90 expert contributors from every branch of clinical medicine provide practical, knowledgeable answers to the questions arising in day-to-day patient care. Coverage encompasses all organ systems, with additional sections on constitutional symptoms, psychiatric and behavioral problems, infectious diseases, women's and men's health issues, and health maintenance. Chapters are either symptom-oriented or disease-oriented, depending on the way a condition presents in practice. Each chapter focuses on the questions clinicians encounter when caring for patients, such as how often the condition occurs, its natural history, and the effectiveness of preventive and therapeutic interventions. The authors offer succinct, practical advice and also explain the rationale for their recommendations. Annotated references at the end of each chapter direct the reader to additional information.
