Expert commentary provides insight into the diagnostic process. These cases are so memorable that they will undoubtedly be useful to clinicians in practice...This compilation of clinical problem-solving cases provides an enjoyable way to learn medicine."-- Doody's Review Service ( Doody's 2007-02-09)
"This text uses real cases published in The New England Journal of Medicine to illustrate how clinicians in both ambulatory and hospital practice reach decisions regarding diagnosis and treatment. The volume opens with an overview of the techniques of quantitative medical decision-making, followed by a discussion of the mental functions that underlie the diagnostic process. Each case presents patient information in small increments to experienced clinicians who then share their reasoning with the reader. Students may opt to initially skip over the expert commentary and instead use the cases to test their own diagnostic skills."-- Sci-Tech Book News ( Sci-Tech Book News 2006-09-01)
