The various symptoms in this book are said to account for over 70% of the chief complaints for which primary care physicians are consulted. The text concentrates on the diagnostic process and does not deal with pathophysiology or therapy except where pertinent. The alphabetically arranged chapters cover 17 medical subspecialties (8 in gastroenterology; 4 in cardiopulmonary; 4 in neurology; 1 on dermatology) and 14 surgical subspecialties (5 in otolaryngology; 5 related to orthopedic and musculoskeletal problems; 4 pertaining to the genitourinary tract). The topics range from abdominal pain, backache, and belching to urethral discharge, vaginal itching, and weight gain.
