Developed at The Methodist Hospital-Houston, the 53 cases in this study aid help medical students analyze clinical and laboratory data about a patient, develop a diagnosis, and form a plan to treat the nervous system disease. The first page of each case describes the patient's symptoms and challenges the student to identify the most likely diagnosis and next diagnostic step. The case then reviews the approach to the disease process, differential diagnosis, laboratory confirmation, and treatment. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
