Research boxes discuss new developments, problem areas of pathophysiology, and complications associated with research. Warning Signs boxes summarize conditions that may develop in patients. Diagnostic tests and treatments are included for each of the major disorders. Case studies in each chapter provide a basis for discussion or can be used as an assignment.
