This stand-alone pocket guide is a portable version of our best-selling annually updated text of general medicine, CURRENT MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT. In a handy disease-per-page format, it provides core diagnostic and treatment information in bulleted lists for over 500 diseases and disorders encountered in the ambulatory and inpatient settings. It covers all common or important diagnoses in internal medicine. It also includes diagnoses in pediatrics, surgery, obstetrics & gynecology, urology, neurology, psychiatry, dermatology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, and toxicology that are of relevance in the daily practice of internal medicine and family medicine. Based on the popular "Essentials of Diagnosis" feature of the Lange CURRENT series, each entry includes presenting symptoms and complaints, methods of confirming the diagnosis, and brief reference to recommended treatments. The goal is to provide the reader with reassurance that he or she is on the right track with a particular diagnosis and to provide basic treatment information.
