This is a stunning new hybrid textbook that has evolved as a direct response to the increasing integration of the two disciplines of medicine and surgery in today's medical curricula. The advantage of this combined approach is it reduces the amount of reading by the elimination of repetition (and inconsistencies) to provide an integrated explanation of the common problems faced both by students during exams and clinicians in daily practice. This book's greatest asset is the ability to illustrate that medical and surgical treatment options are actually part of a continuum in the management of disease.

    “A very skilful integration, and an excellent multidisciplinary text.”

    "Each chapter runs through the basics of a disease, recent advances, epidemiology, pathology and everything else you might be expected to know....Crucially, clinical features and initial investigations are easy to find."
    Queen’s Medical Magazine, Birmingham Medical School. Spring 2009


    ''Each chapter is systems based and starts off with a concise but comprehensive refresher on the relevant anatomy, physiology, symptoms, clinical examinations and specialist investigations. The layout is inspirational - you literally have to see it to believe it. Reading the book is like being given a guided tour of the decision making process leading to a diagnosis.''
