Each book in the series is based on a specific body system and has two sections. Part 1 presents diseases alphabetically, with a description, causes & incidence, signs & symptoms, complications, diagnosis, treatment including drugs used to treat the disease, and the reason for using each drug, and special considerations. Part 2 offers–also in alphabetical order–complete drug monographs for each drug mentioned in the disease section.
