Based around the curriculum for specialist trainees in respiratory medicine and designed for those preparing for exit exams, this book contains 44 well-structured, peer-reviewed cases gathered from the Oxford Hospitals, comprehensively covering the various disorders of the respiratory system. New developments in medical training at junior and registrar level have created a need for a collection of cases which enable self-assessment, directed at postgraduates. Each
case comprises a brief clinical history and relevant examination findings, details of investigations, medical imaging followed by questions on differential diagnosis, and management and detailed answers and discussion.

The illustrations, tables, and diagrams are superb...I recommend this book very highly to trainees striving to become skilled pulmonary clinicians and to experts as a look back at their clinical experience that will be useful in teaching. It will help preserve clinical-radiographic correlations as a tool for skillful diagnosis and management of patients. * Doody's Notes *
It is like having your favourite clinical teacher share his/her accumulated clinical nouse in a way that makes the apparently ordinary case stimulating and full of subtlety... I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to specialist registrars and consultants in respiratory medicine - go out and get a copy for your department. * British Journal of Hospital Medicine, June 2011 *
