This book is a new and improved revision of "The Textbook of Clinical Medicine for Asia". It is ideal as a standard medical text for students and physicians in Asia, as well as a reliable resource for physicians and researchers involved in treating Asians in the West. The book aims to outline approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions that are common to the region or its people. Each chapter includes an introduction to the basic concepts and current status in medical specialties such as cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology and rheumatology. The chapters are based on local practice and regional expertise with statistics and experience unique to the Asia-Pacific region. Thus the book reflects the knowledge and experience of the disease patterns in the region.
