100 Cases in Orthopaedics and Rheumatology pdf

100 Cases in Orthopaedics and Rheumatology presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in orthopaedic and rheumatology clinics, or in the emergency department. A succinct summary of the patient’s history, examination and initial investigations, with clinical and/or imaging photographs, is followed by questions on the diagnosis and management of each case.

The answer includes a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate, providing an essential revision aid as well as a practical guide for students and junior doctors.

Making clinical decisions and choosing the best course of action is one of the most challenging and difficult parts of training to become a doctor. These cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important symptoms and signs and, where appropriate, their relationship to other medical conditions, and to develop their diagnostic and management skills.

CS would like to thank colleagues in the Rheumatology, Radiology and Respiratory departments for their expertise, advice and invaluable contributions. PJS: I would like to dedicate this book to my wife Rowena and children Kieran and Angelina Singh who have been as committed as I have in completing this book. Without their support and abundance of love none of this would be possible. I thank them enormously for their support. I would like to acknowledge my mother Gurbaksh Kaur for her lifetime support and love in making this all possible. I am very grateful for the opportunity to write this book and thank Professor Christopher Bulstrode in Oxford for this. Finally I would like to acknowledge two of my dearest and closest friends Richard and Lisa Field for their expert support and guidance throughout my professional life.
