Differential Diagnosis of Common Complaints Elsevier eBook on VitalSource, 6th Edition


Differential Diagnosis of Common Complaints, 6th Edition, by Drs. Robert H. Seller and Andrew B. Symons, helps you quickly and efficiently diagnose the 36 most common symptoms reported by patients. Organized alphabetically by presenting symptom, each chapter mirrors the problem-solving process most physicians use to make a diagnosis. It’s a practical, clinically oriented approach that can help you master the differential diagnosis of common symptoms and diagnose almost all the problems typically seen in your practice.

  • Find the guidance you need quickly through an alphabetical organization by presenting symptom and a concise, consistent, user-friendly approach that mirrors the diagnostic decision-making process.

  • Recognize skin problems more easily with full-color images in the dermatology chapter.
  • Effectively diagnose your patients using an increased focus on evidence-based decision making, thoroughly updated material, and the latest results from clinical and diagnostic studies.

  • Determine which imaging modalities and laboratory tests offer the greatest efficiencies and accuracy for a given set of symptoms.

  • Get a fresh perspective from new co-author, Dr. Andrew B. Symons, who brings a strong background in education as Vice Chair of Medical Student Education at SUNY Buffalo.
