A true diagnostic guide filled with valuable medical information Full of unexpected tips and pearls Useful for both practicing physicians and students Which disease should you consider when a young adult has localized bone pain that is dramatically relieved by aspirin? What is sometimes the only physical manifestation of bulimia nervosa? These so-called "old fashioned" historical clues and physical signs are not only part of our medical heritage; their deployment can often spell the difference between prompt clinical diagnosis versus a costly investigative odyssey. Often overlooked with today's emphasis on laboratory testing, a diagnostic pearl such as knowing that a diabetic patient with peripheral neuropathy may actually have metformin-induced vitamin B12 deficiency can be a shortcut to disease recognition.
Diagnostic Principles and Applications presents selected literature-based facts and diagnostic insights to help clinicians provide better-informed clinical assessments, avoid medical misadventures, and prepare for their board examinations. The chapters cover:
Classic diagnostic pearls Red flag symptoms and signs of serious illness Bellwether disease indications allowing an occasional early, preemptive diagnosis Counterintuitive clinical manifestations of disease Curious clues to specific diagnoses.
