Case-based learning is a fundamental part of teaching at medical school because it links theory to practice. Case-Based Discussions in Medicine is designed to help prepare students for clinical practice by working through authentic cases. All cases are presented in a consistent style, and cover:

  • History of presenting complaint
  • Examination and interpretation
  • Differential diagnoses
  • Investigations
  • Diagnosis and management

Each case concludes with background information covering the pathophysiology, diagnostic criteria and clinical guidelines. The book is a study companion for medical students and foundation doctors and will help you:

  • become proficient at writing up a patient's history and examination findings
  • improve your clinical decision-making and patient management
  • build your clinical knowledge

From back pain and breathlessness to post-partum psychosis, via abdominal pain and jaundice, placenta praevia, and alcoholic liver disease, the book guides you through common cases in medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics and psychiatry.
