The authors have attempted to present in outline form the medical management of most of the disease entities known to medicine today. Each disease is listed, along with its official code number. Then follows a brief but pertinent paragraph defining the disease. After this, the treatment is outlined specifically and concisely. When indicated, a paragraph on prophylaxis, diagnostic procedures or physiology is included. There are numerous charts and tables. The book is up to date and amazingly inclusive. In spite of its scope, it is well indexed and easy to use for quick reference.
