Textbook of Medicine

by KV Krishna Das

This book has been designed to include the up-to-date information obtainable from print material and electronic data and has been presented in a simple language in form of direct statements, so as to make the matter more vivid and comprehensible to the medical students and doctors in India and the neighbouring countries coming from different social and language backgrounds. In areas where more detailed information is desirable for the practitioners and the postgraduate students, authentic reviews and original works are referred to. Several new figures, many of them taken personally by the contributors from their own clinical practice and flow charts and tables have been added. Along with several chapters a short summary is given to serve as a ready-reckoner for the students preparing for the examination or the busy practitioners who have only limited time at their disposal. All the sections have been thoroughly revised. The number of contributors has also increased including teachers in specialities who have made their mark in their respective specialisation. This Textbook of Medicine has been written with this picture in mind. The section on tropical diseases, which usually gets a separate deal in most of the western textbooks, has been dovetailed into the other sections such as infections, physical agents, nutrition and others to improve the understanding of these subjects. This volume is intended for the use of undergraduate and postgraduate students of medicine, dental sciences and other allied subjects, students preparing for entrance examinations and practitioners working in India and the neighbouring countries.
