"This handy little text has everything you need to review gross anatomy...[It's] perfect for first-years just starting anatomy, second-years preparing for the boards, and third- and fourth-years going over their anatomy for their surgery rotations."--Kathleen M.

Review:

George C. Enders, PhD(University of Kansas Medical Center)

**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.
