Index of Suspicion in Treatable Diseases

Index of Suspicion in Treatable Diseases This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This unique book represents an immense effort by its two author-editors and 63 other contributors, largely Philadelphians. It is based on Horwitz's course given for the American College of Physicians on "Treatable Diseases." It is written primarily by medical men for medical men, but should be useful to surgeons also. Patients, most certainly, would like the idea of this book, as they come to the doctor for treatment and relief of symptoms, not for an intellectual discussion or even for the niceties of diagnosis. The idea of diagnosing something that you can treat (the Sutton law) is universally appealing. Unfortunately, the book is not indexed according to symptoms, signs, or laboratory findings, so it is not useful for reference. Having said that, however, one can add that it needs and deserves to be read completely from end to end. If approached thus, it is a stimulating and rewarding exercise.
