This book contains 109 clinical cases illustrated by color photographs, diagrams and tables that will help candidates for postgraduate examinations learn how to handle the investigation and management of elderly patients. The cases cover the main modes of presentation of acute illness in old age, such as fall, confusion, incontinence, weight loss and immobility, with examples from all the major systems. The cases illustrate the complexity of diagnosis and treatment of medical illness in older people and the need to think widely and laterally when caring for such patients. The book also contains 250 'best of 5' multiple choice questions and answers to reflect the current style used in postgraduate examinations.
