Now in its third edition, this best-selling handbook is a practical, authoritative guide to more than 600 diseases.

Pocket-sized, alphabetically organized, and filled with tips, alerts, and checklists, the handbook targets the key information busy clinicians need at the bedside—signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, treatments, and patient concerns.

This edition includes new entries on infectious diseases caused by biological agents and antibiotic-resistant organisms, complex regional pain syndrome, rhabdomyolysis, and the new Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease variant. Also new to this edition are Age Alerts, citing pediatric and geriatric considerations, and Gender Issue icons, highlighting gender-related variations in a disease’s incidence, course, and treatment.
