About this Book

Containing high quality images, this book presents the common visual diagnoses that are either pathognomonic or suggestive of specific illnesses. Organized randomly as a patient would present their 'chief complaint' rather than neatly into topics, this book is an invaluable aid for all health care personnel who manage patients in acute care settings. This book is also ideal for national examination review.
