Developed by a known expert in research, this fact-filled dictionary should give the reader an understanding of the syndromes and diseases listed and should also help to unravel the difficulties in communication concerning these entities. The extensive coverage is intended to make the book valuable to medical students, scholars, scientific writers, librarians and historians. Particular features of this dictionary are that it offers: more than 15,000 syndrome entries; 5000 main syndromes; 10,000 cross-references; over 200 illustrations; reverification from original sources, where available; and verification against current authoritative sources. The following is a quotation from the introduction to the book: "Information contained in the book was obtained through a systematic analyssi of journal articles selected from some 95,000 references extracted over a period of 20 years from the MEDLARS database of the National Library of Medicine. In most instances, information thus obtained was augmented with that from current reference books. Only those syndromes and eponymic diseases which occurred in the literature with a regular frequency were selected, excluding most of those which appeared rarely or irregularly, as well as those in which the term syndrome was used facetiously or as an expression of humour."
