This book presents real-Life clinical cases for the basic sciences and USMLE Step 1. Clinical correlations are increasingly emphasized in the teaching of basic medical science. Students, therefore, need exposure to clinical cases to pass course exams and ace the USMLE Step 1. This book presents 49 real-life clinical cases illustrating essential concepts in gross anatomy. Each case includes an easy-to-understand discussion correlated to key basic science concepts, definitions of key terms, anatomical pearls, and USMLE-style review questions. This interactive learning system helps you to learn instead of memorize.This book presents 49 clinical cases correlated to high-yield anatomy concepts; anatomical pearls highlight key points; USMLE-style comprehension questions with each case; and, primer on how to approach the basic sciences. Proven learning system improves exam scores. 'This book covers the extent of the subject of anatomy - from the details of gross anatomy to clinical correlations and pearls. Organized into clinical cases, it is a fun and quick read' - Stacy Ugras, 3rd year medical student, Weill Medical College of Cornell University. '...Fantastic preparation for anatomy practical exams. It's also a fantastic study tool for Step 1 prep! Learning on a cadaver helps you understand anatomy in 3-D. "Case Files: Gross Anatomy" will help you understand that anatomy and how you'll use it in real clinical practice' - Brad Miller, 3rd year medical student, Weill Medical College of Cornell University. McGraw-Hill Professional LANGE Publishing for medical students since 1938.

**Description** This book contains 49 real-life clinical cases designed to both help teach gross anatomy and help medical students prepare for USMLE Step 1. Each clinical case presents a patient with relevant history and symptoms, and uses the case (typically an injury or pathology) as an educational tool to teach the anatomy related to that case. It also provides USMLE Step 1 type multiple choice questions with answers. Each case ends with and key "Anatomical Pearls" and reference for further explanations if needed. The discussion in almost all cases includes tables and illustrations to clarify the anatomical issues.
**Purpose** The purpose is to aid medical students while they learn gross anatomy and prepare them for USMLE Step 1.
**Audience** The audience is medical students who are taking gross anatomy and studying for USMLE Step 1. The book is meant to serve as a supplement to traditional books and atlases and solidify clinical relevance of anatomy.
**Features** The 49 cases are divided into regions. After the description of the clinical case, there are a series of open-ended questions. The questions are answered by explaining the anatomy behind the case with extensive tables and illustrations of the relevant anatomy. Following are, generally, three USMLE Step 1 style multiple choice questions with explanations and references for further reading. Useful features include the "Anatomical Pearls" of key anatomical points and the cross references of cases by diagnosis.
**Assessment** The book does a nice job with the clinical case approach. It covers many of the classic clinical cases that medical students are likely to encounter in their future practice. The bolding of key names and structures as well as the very complete index are also useful features. In the field of anatomy review books, this one is unusual, in that there are relatively few clinical cases, but each one includes an extensive explanation of both the normal and clinically relevant anatomy with lots of illustrations and tables. No other books on gross anatomy take this approach. Many medical students will find it very useful.
