Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery, second edition, teaches students a logical step-by-step diagnostic approach to common patient presentations. This approach mirrors that used by successful clinicians on the wards, challenging students with questions at each stage of a case (history-taking, examination, investigation, management). In tackling these questions, students understand how to critically analyse information and learn to integrate their existing knowledge to a real-life scenario from start to finish.

Each chapter focuses on a common presenting symptom (e.g. chest pain). By starting with a symptom, mirroring real life settings, students learn to draw on their knowledge of different physiological systems - for example, cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology - at the same time. All the major presenting symptoms in general medicine and surgery are covered, together with a broad range of pathologies.

This book is an essential resource for all medicine students, and provides a modern, well-rounded introduction to life on the wards. Ideal for those starting out in clinical medicine and an ideal refresher for those revising for OSCEs and finals.

• Covers the common presenting symptoms in UK medical school curricula and finals exams
• Friendly and accessible text outlines how to approach diagnosis logically and clearly explains the rationale behind clinical decisions
• Systematically walks the reader through the diagnostic process from history to examination, investigation, interpretation and management options
• Each chapter includes a long case, several short cases, viva (short-answer) questions and multiple choice questions to prepare for life on the wards and to direct revision
• Ideal resource for those new to clincial medicine and those revising for finals
