From customer reviews of the previous edition:
‘Cases in Clinical Medicine is an extremely complementary resource for medical students – especially as quick reference material on the ward. If you are used to using Kumar & Clark’s Clinical Medicine it has a familiar feel in its structure and ease of reading. It is well structured and contains pretty much all the regular cases you will experience. Being in my first clinical year, I have found it is a useful adjunct to the Oxford Handbook. The chapters list regular cases, with a run-through of the presentation (signs and symptoms).
Differentials, early and late management, available treatments and much more. There are loads of useful diagrams and images from clinical practice – X-rays, medial photographs, histology/cytology etc.’
‘The information in this text is concise, relevant and reliable … evidence-based whenever possible. The depth of knowledge goes beyond that expected of clinical medical students. Foundation Course and maybe even specialist training years.
As a ward-based reference it is excellent, containing all the acute situations one is likely to encounter.
Information is outlined in a concise and readable manner but the detail is more than sufficient to impart. Key points are regularly reinforced using textboxes to highlight their importance. The use of case histories in each section is a good method of highlighting the key points yet also develops understanding and learning when reference is made to a clinical case. There is good use made of quality diagrams, tables and photographs throughout the text.’
