Common clinical conditions from various systems are included with each topic including a brief introduction with definitions as applicable, enumeration of the differential diagnosis in text, box, table, and figure format as needed, and an explanation of differentiating each condition based on history, clinical features and investigations leading to particular diagnosis. Wherever possible, an algorithmic approach been adopted and where essential, illustrations have been incorporated. Each chapter ends with important references for further reading.
