2014 BMA Medical Book Awards 1st Prize Award Winner in Medicine category! This is new edition of the book previously called Acute Clinical Medicine in the highly popular Kumar and Clark family. Cases in Clinical Medicine covers in handbook form the complete range of acute medical conditions and problems that junior doctors are likely to encounter during the first years of training. It is divided into chapters reflecting core medical specialties - including infectious diseases; STD; gastroenterology; etc. Each chapter is then subdivided into case-based problems, such as (for example) pyrexia of unknown origin (under the Infectious Disease Group), HIV/Aids (under STD) and Vomiting and Weight Loss (under Gastroenterology). Each problem follows a standard pattern or template: it begins with a case history, and is accompanied by short, succinct text divided up by headings such as 'What are the commonest causes of...'; What factors predispose to...' Where relevant there are also sections on pathology, pathophysiology and prognosis. Important points to note in the acute context are picked out in boxes ('Beware', 'Remember!' and 'Information') as are vital investigations. More than 200 cases Remember! boxes Investigations boxes Information boxes More than 200 cases

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book follow the principles of problem-based learning widely used in medical schools. The design is inviting and the layout easy to use... The book seems particularly suitable for medical students preparing for their finals, but it also has has important things to teach FY1s on the ward and the acute take, FY2s about to start a job in emergency...it seems to succeed at its stated aim of teaching problem-solving in many acute medical scenarios in an approachable fashion."
