NOW in full color! A complete case-based review of the essentials of pathophysiology – covering all major organs and systems 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "This is a great addition to the ranks of pathophysiology books for graduate students in medicine. It also is useful as a reference while on the wards as a memory jogger for basic anatomy, physiology, and pathology of common diseases. The addition of the full-color diagrammatic illustrations and tables and the expanded case studies make the e book aesthetically pleasing and easily navigable. Overall, this is a great book to have on hand for the preclinical years, clinical years, and beyond!"--Doody's Review Service This trusted text introduces you to clinical medicine by reviewing the pathophysiologic basis of the signs and symptoms of 100 diseases commonly encountered in medical practice. Each chapter first describes normal function of a major organ or organ system, then turns attention to the pathology and disordered physiology, including the role of genetics, immunology, and infection in pathogenesis. Underlying disease mechanisms are described, along with their systems, signs, and symptoms, and the way these mechanisms themselves determine the most effective treatment. This unique interweaving of physiological and pathological concepts will put you on the path towards thinking about signs and symptoms in terms of their pathologic basis, giving you an understanding of the “whys” behind both illness and treatment. Features NEW full-color presentation 111 case studies (22 new ones) provide an opportunity for you to test your understanding of the pathophysiology of each clinical entity discussed A complete chapter devoted to detailed analyses of the cases “Checkpoint” review questions appear throughout every chapter Numerous tables and diagrams encapsulate important information References for each chapter topic NEW sections in the chapters on liver disease and inflammatory rheumatic diseases and a completely rewritten chapter on male reproductive tract disorders Visit www.LangeTextbooks.com to access MP3 audio cases and other valuable resources.

Prior to publication of the first edition of Clinical Medicine of the Dog and Cat, no other comprehensive small animal veterinary medicine book existed with a comparable amount of relevant illustrated material. This new third edition continues and expands on the revolutionary approach of the previous two editions, now including more than 1,850 highly valuable clinical colour photographs, diagrams, and tables. The third edition of this book has been completely revised and updated. The book is now divided into five color-coded sections – General Approach, Disease of Specific Organ Systems, Multisystemic Disorders, Elements of Therapy and Case Studies. As with the first and second editions of this book the overriding principle of succinct, yet comprehensive text presented in a clear format with an abundance of good quality images remains. Section I: General Approach is completely new and covers medical history and client communication, and common clinical problems. Section II: Specific Organ Systems is organized by body system with chapters structured in a systematic manner that include the definition for each disorder, its causes, clinical features, differential diagnoses, diagnostic methodology, treatment and prognosis, providing readers with easy access to important clinical information. New to this section are chapters covering diseases of the oral cavity and teeth, approach to thoracic radiographs, approach to abdominal radiographs, and disorders of hemostasis. Section III: Multisystemic Disorders covers revised and updated chapters including clinical toxicology, infectious diseases, and immunologic disorders. Section IV: Elements of Therapy covers therapies such as fluid therapy, pain management, nutrition of the critically ill dog and cat and a new chapter on management of the obese dog or cat. Section V: Case Studies includes over 25 case studies that enable the reader to relate the knowledge gained in the book to clinical cases seen in practice. Written by board-certified experts with several case contributions by clinicians in advanced phases of resident training, topics were carefully selected to make this a valuable resource to the general practitioner and also to small animal interns and veterinary students.
