For the medical student and the young doctor Examining Patients sign-posts the way. The book describes how to interview and examine patients and illustrates important physical signs with diagrams and photographs. Particular emphasis is placed on those diseases and syndromes most commonly encountered in Western countries but it also includes a section on tropical diseases, giving the book world-wide appeal. The contributors have adopted a practical, didactic approach and have added to the techniques of examination descriptions of disease processes where these illustrate and emphasize general principles. Some unusual diseases are described which exhibit interesting or pathognomic signs.
