Differential diagnosis : book preview

This book has a mnemonic oriented approach to differential diagnosis. Say for example, the causes of earache are represented as a picture. Also, they have tried to list the causes of various conditions by using the mnemonics "MINT" which stands for Malformations, Inflammatory, Neoplasms, Trauma  and "VINDICATE" which stands for Vascular, Inflammatory, Neoplasms, Deficiancy, Intoxication, Congenital/Collagen, Allergic/Autoimmune, Trauma, Endocrine. Go through this book below to get mnemonics for causes of earache, dyspnea, edema, diarrhea, cough, constipation, eye pain etc - all with picture mnemonics.
