Challenging Cases in Pulmonology Summary

Challenging Cases in Pulmonology by Massoud Mahmoudi

From acute respiratory diseases to chronic lung conditions, pulmonology is a vital area of clinical medicine. Due to a wide array of respiratory diseases, clinical presentation of pulmonary conditions can be complex and oftentimes challenging. In addition to recognizing common characteristics of lung diseases, identifying unusual clinical presentation of pulmonary conditions remains an important educational experience. This concise and easy-to-read title provides that experience in practical context, using a case-based system of learning where a unique case is presented and discussed and questions are provided to challenge the learner and reinforce the transmission of knowledge. Challenging Cases in Pulmonology is not an exhaustive review but rather focuses on common and important problems, with emphasis on evaluation and treatment. The book offers 16 chapters consisting of two or more cases followed by five to ten multiple choice questions. A valuable resource for pulmonologists, allergists, primary care physicians, internal medicine, fellows in allergy and pulmonology, and residents in training, this practical title will also be of interest to nurses, physician assistants, and medical students studying pulmonology. Challenging Cases in Pulmonology complements two previously published case-based titles edited by Dr. Mahmoudi: Challenging Cases in Allergy and Immunology (Humana Press, 2009) and Challenging Cases in Allergic and Immunologic Diseases of the Skin (Springer, 2010).

Challenging Cases in Pulmonology Reviews

From the reviews:

The book provides a pragmatic approach for the diagnosis and management of the multiple pulmonary diseases, which often overlap with other specialties, and summarises the literature in a current and concrete context. ... I enjoyed reading it and believe that the colour review will appeal to a wide readership, ranging from senior medical students, to trainees in internal medicine, and to pulmonologists in training and practice. (J. Le Pavec, European Respiratory Review, Vol. 22 (127), March, 2013)

A relatively concise yet comprehensive collection of respiratory cases, neatly stratified by diagnostic type and further stratified within chapters by disease processes. ... The contents and layout will allow this book to reach, and engage with, its target audience. Occupational physicians, or other specialist physicians with an interest in occupation, will identify certain cases of direct relevance. Respiratory physicians will find this book a very useful addition to the bookshelf ... . I enjoyed reading this and would buy and keep a copy! (David Fishwick, Occupational Medicine, Vol. 62 (7), October, 2012)
