Genre: Science

The inspiration for this basic science series occurred at an educational retreat led by Dr. Maximilian Buja, who at the time was the dean of the medical school. It has been such a joy to work together with Drs. William Seifert and Henry Strobel, who are both accomplished scientists and teachers, as well as the other excellent authors and contributors. It has been rewarding to collaborate with Dr. Konrad Harms, whom I have watched mature from a medical student to resident and now a brilliant faculty member. I would like to thank McGraw-Hill for believing in the concept of teaching by clinical cases. I owe a great debt to Catherine Johnson, who has been a fantastically encouraging and enthusiastic editor. At the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, we would like to recognize Dr. Rodney E. Kellems, Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, for his encouragement and delight in this project; Johnna Kincaid, former Director of Management Operations for her support; Nina Smith and Bonnie Martinez for their help in preparing the manuscript; and Amy Gilbert for her assistance with the figures. We also would like to thank the many students that have allowed us to teach them over the years and who have in the process taught us. Dr. Seifert thanks his wife Margie for her encouragement, patience, and support. At Methodist Hospital, I appreciate Drs. Mark Boom, Karin Pollock-Larsen, H. Dirk Sostman, and Judy Paukert, and Mr. John Lyle and Mr. Reggie Abraham. At St. Joseph Medical Center, I would like to recognize our outstanding administrators: Phil Robinson, Pat Mathews, Laura Fortin, Dori Upton, Cecile Reynolds, and Drs. John Bertini and Thomas V. Taylor. I appreciate Marla Buffington’s advice and assistance. Without the help from my colleagues, Drs. Konrad Harms, Jeané Simmons Holmes, and Priti Schachel, this book could not have been written. Most important, I am humbled by the love, affection, and encouragement from my lovely wife, Terri and our four children, Andy, Michael, Allison, and Christina. Eugene C.

This pageOften, the medical student will cringe at the “drudgery” of the basic science courses and see little connection between a field such as biochemistry and clinical problems. Clinicians, however, often wish they knew more about the basic sciences, because it is through the science that we can begin to understand the complexities of the human body and thus have rational methods of diagnosis and treatment. Mastering the knowledge in a discipline such as biochemistry is a formidable task. It is even more difficult to retain this information and to recall it when the clinical setting is encountered. To accomplish this synthesis, biochemistry is optimally taught in the context of medical situations, and this is reinforced later during the clinical rotations. The gulf between the basic sciences and the patient arena is wide. Perhaps one way to bridge this gulf is with carefully constructed clinical cases that ask basic science-oriented questions. In an attempt to achieve this goal, we have designed a collection of patient cases to teach biochemistry related points. More importantly, the explanations for these cases emphasize the underlying mechanisms and relate the clinical setting to the basic science data. We explore the principles rather than emphasize rote memorization. This book is organized for versatility: to allow the student “in a rush” to go quickly through the scenarios and check the corresponding answers and to provide more detailed information for the student who wants thought-provoking explanations. The answers are arranged from simple to complex: a summary of the pertinent points, the bare answers, a clinical correlation, an approach to the biochemistry topic, a comprehension test at the end to reinforcement or emphasis, and a list of references for further reading. The clinical cases are arranged by system to better reflect the organization within the basic science. Finally, to encourage thinking about mechanisms and relationships, we intentionally did not primarily use a multiple-choice format. Nevertheless, several multiple-choice questions are included at the end of each scenario to reinforce concepts or introduce related topics. HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THIS BOOK Each case is designed to introduce a clinically related issue and includes openended questions usually asking a basic science question, but at times, to break up the monotony, there will be a clinical question. The answers are organized into four different parts: xiii Copyright © 2008 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Click here for terms of use.
