Product Description

Review

Product Description

Davidson’s 100 Clinical Cases was awarded First Prize in Medicine in the 2009 British Medical Association Medical Book Awards. This book reflects the real world in which doctors practise medicine. The selection of clinical problems guides the reader, step by step, through the correct path in the maze between the presenting complaint of a patient and the final diagnosis. The text emphasises the value of interpreting available clinical and investigative information in a logical way before considering a definitive diagnosis.

  • The 100 cases are based on the ‘presenting problems’ of Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine.
  • The book provides an international outlook reflecting the differences in the practice of medicine in the developing world and in low-resource settings, and addresses the epidemiological, economic and other reasons for many of these important differences.
  • The cases are written by a team of senior doctors, from 12 countries, with considerable teaching experience.

The book now includes 100 cases all closely linked to the ‘presenting problems’ sections of the lastest 21st Edition of Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine. In this expanded new edition there are many new cases including aluminium phosphide poisoning; occupational lung disease; tremor; and drug interactions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book covering the core clinical cases 7 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
This latest release in the Davidson's series of books does not fail to disappoint those who have come to know and respect the Davidson's title as being textbooks useful for medical students at whatever stage of their undergraduate education they may currently be. This book is a real bonus for any student who is studying for his or her exams, particularly if you have a clinical paper to sit. The book covers nearly if not all of the core clinical cases that a medical student will be exposed to in medical school and thus can be tested on in the exams in both general medicine and surgery. Perhaps the only cases that seem to be lacking in this book are psychiatric ones but given there aren't many of them this book is great.

With each of the cases the book gives you an introduction to the case in the form of the presenting the problem, you are then given an explanation of what the differential diagnoses would be prior to examination, followed by the examination findings for this patient and why these examinations are done along with further investigations to be performed. Each section concludes with refined differentials, management and `Key points and global issues' with references to the relevant chapter of Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine (21st edn).

On the whole I would recommend this book to any student who is looking for a book that helps them to get to grips with a wide range of the core cases that you could be presented with both in hospital and in the exam. The RRP of £19.99 would appear to be worthwhile for this book. However I received a gratis copy of this book from Elsevier for having done some work for them so cannot wholly comment on this.
