Based around the curriculum for specialist trainees in respiratory medicine and designed for those preparing for exit exams, this book contains 44 well-structured, peer-reviewed cases gathered from the Oxford Hospitals, comprehensively covering the various disorders of the respiratory system. New developments in medical training at junior and registrar level have created a need for a collection of cases which enable self-assessment, directed at postgraduates. Each case comprises a brief clinical history and relevant examination findings, details of investigations, medical imaging followed by questions on differential diagnosis, and management and detailed answers and discussion.
