“This book is a tremendous asset for students and residents learning to develop their diagnostic skills. It can also be useful as a refresher for established clinicians when the more common diagnoses are not the cause of a patient’s complaints.”
―Doody’s Review

An engaging case-based approach to learning the diagnostic process in internal medicine

Doody’s Core Titles for 2021!

Symptom to Diagnosis, Fourth Edition teaches an evidence-based, step-by-step process for evaluating, diagnosing, and treating patients based on their clinical complaints. By applying this process clinicians will be able to recognize specific diseases and prescribe the most effective therapy.

Each chapter is built around a common patient complaint that illustrates essential concepts and provides insight into the process by which the differential diagnosis is identified.  As the case progresses, clinical reasoning is explained in detail. The differential diagnosis for that particular case is summarized in tables that highlight the clinical clues and important tests for the leading diagnostic hypothesis and alternative diagnostic hypotheses. As the chapter progresses, the pertinent diseases are reviewed. Just as in real life, the case unfolds in a stepwise fashion as tests are performed and diagnoses are confirmed or refuted.

Completely updated to reflect the latest research in clinical medicine, this fourth edition is enhanced by algorithms, summary tables, questions that direct evaluation, and an examination of recently developed diagnostic tools and guidelines. Clinical pearls are featured in every chapter. Coverage for each disease includes: Textbook Presentation, Disease Highlights, Evidence-Based Diagnosis, and Treatment.

The history taking and communication skill stations are amongst the most difficult postgraduate examinations, where candidates more commonly fail due to an inability to communicate properly with the patient, rather than due to lack of knowledge.

Authored by experienced postgraduate examiners, this book offers students a wealth of real-life scenarios in multi-conversational styles, using a seven-step approach to help them understand the questions and provide clear and succinct answers.

The scenarios are similar to those most frequently encountered in examinations and the model answers are in a typical style expected between doctor and patient, also taking into account candidates for whom English may not be their first language.

The comprehensive text is enhanced by illustrations and figures to assist learning and will be useful not only to candidates preparing for postgraduate clinical examinations, but also to undergraduate students.

Provides real-life, conversational-style scenarios between doctor and patient to help students prepare for postgraduate history taking and communication skill examinations
