This is a revised edition covering common diseases seen in primary health care. Good family practice demands a sound knowledge of the nature of the diseases in the community. Not only are traditional diagnostic and therapeutic skills necessary; one also needs the application of an understanding of the frequency and distribution of the diseases and an awareness of their likely natural history - their course and outcome. For each of the diseases commonly seen in primary health care, the following questions are asked and answered: what is it, who gets it when, how does it present, how is the diagnsis confirmed, what to do and what happens? This book forms an introduction and source book for all members of the primary health care team, in particularly trainers and trainees. It should also be of value to anyone wanting a concise overview of common diseases as they occur in the community.
