    • PrefaceThe purpose of this handbook is to provide the clinician with a quickreference to the differential diagnosis, etiology, and classification ofclinical disorders, signs, and symptoms. These various differentialdiagnoses are readily available in general medical texts, but theinformation is often scattered and difficult to find. The second editionof this manual has been significantly expanded and now contains thedifferential diagnosis of over 1500 signs, symptoms, and clinicaldisorders, yet its small size easily fits in a lab coat pocket. To facilitateits use, each condition is listed alphabetically. Differential diagnosesare listed in order of decreasing frequency. This book differs from other differential diagnosis books becauseit lists not only the differential diagnosis of signs, symptoms, andlaboratory abnormalities but also the differential diagnosis of morethan 600 clinical disorders. For example, its user can rapidly locatethe differential diagnosis of “Calcifications on Chest X-ray” and fur-ther identify the differential diagnosis of “Silicosis,” “Tuberculosis,”and other diseases that can cause calcifications on chest x-ray, thusnarrowing down the correct diagnosis. This book is intended for use by medical students, physicians, andallied health professionals in need of a practical rapid referencecovering nearly every possible sign, symptom, and clinical disorderthat will be encountered in the daily practice of both in-patient andout-patient medicine.
