100 Case Histories in Clinical Medicine for MRCP (Part 1)

by Farrukh Iqbal

This book 100 Case Histories in Medicine is a good contribution to the subject of clinical medicine giving a good coverage to different sections of internal medicine. This book presentation is simple, readable, accurate and with a sound scientific foundation. This book work will receive respect, admiration and success it rightly deserves from undergraduate, postgraduate medical students and family practitioners. The clinical skills of history taking and examination make the main pillar of good medical practice and most of the cases depend upon clinical presentation and examination. This book is an effort to pick up the “brains” by exercising problem solving. In this book brief history and important clues on clinical examination along with investigations are provided. Few important investigations are intentionally omitted and are asked in questions. In a few histories, the ECG or X-ray is shown and the reader is expected to interpret those to reach a diagnosis. In this book SI units have been used. The lay out is in the form of chapters which are named system-wise and the diagnosis of case histories are labelled as such. If a reader is interested to read the cases related to, for example, cardiology, then the reader can go through that chapter and so on. An attempt has been made to improve important questions related to the text and current concepts are also discussed. This book will not only help problem solving in day-to-day life of medical doctors but will also serve as a purpose for preparing them for their postgraduate examination in medicine, e.g. FCPS, MRCP and others.
