Designed to highlight important teaching points, this book is an invaluable tool for physicians in training and clinicians preparing for certification or recertification in internal medicine, or medical clerkship review. It contains 173 cases with 287 color images and ABIM-type multiple-choice review questions, answers, and explanations. The authors present cases as unknowns in random order, mirroring examination and clinical practice conditions. For specialty-specific review, an innovative chain-referencing system links cases throughout the book based on specialty classifications. A detailed index allows the reader to find particular cases or images by topic.
