New York/Stuttgart - Thieme Publishers is pleased to announce the release of "Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicine," the new book by Walter Siegenthaler, M.D., a leading figure in medicine. It is an authoritative reference work that is ideal for medical students, residents, and practitioners.
In the forward of the new book, Antonio M. Gotto, Jr., M.D., D.Phil, Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell University, writes, "Differential diagnosis is the fundamental methodology of modern clinical medicine. It requires the physician to be observant, knowledgeable, thoughtful, thorough, and well organized." This is a fitting description of the author.
Walter Siegenthaler, M.D., is Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine at the University of Zurich in Switzerland. He is widely admired for his accomplishments in and dedication to the advancement of medicine. His clinical skill and practical wisdom, on full display in "Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicine," are essential resources for the medical community.
The book is divided into twelve sections, firstly addressing common symptoms such as pain, fever, and dermatologic symptoms. Subsequent sections are organized by functional system and cover cardiac, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, nephrologic and neurologic disorders, among others. Proceeding from the symptoms, each chapter presents a comprehensive overview of the methodology and diagnostic tools and tests that guide readers toward a definitive diagnosis.
With more than 1,000 pages, this expertly conceived book includes over 700 illustrations. Diagnostic pathways are highlighted by numerous algorithms incorporating symptom constellations and evaluation of test results. The abundance of illustrative photographs, informative tables and up-to-date discussions of issues in internal medicine is very useful in the daily clinical practice.
