Now in its third edition, this best-selling handbook is a practical, authoritative guide to more than 600 diseases.

This edition includes new entries on infectious diseases caused by biological agents and antibiotic-resistant organisms, complex regional pain syndrome, rhabdomyolysis, and the new Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease variant. Also new to this edition are Age Alerts, citing pediatric and geriatric considerations, and Gender Issue icons, highlighting gender-related variations in a disease’s incidence, course, and treatment.
