Each case begins with a clinical vignette which generates a series of questions the reader must address. Cases are expanded to discuss differential diagnoses, investigations and management issues. Further questions direct the reader to explore relevant clinical and scientific knowledge – similar to the structure of many professional oral examinations. The final section of the book consists of exam style questions in a multiple choice and single best answer style.
