Summary "A collection of more than fifty hard-to-crack medical quandaries, featuring the best of The New York Times Magazine's popular 'Diagnosis' column. Dr. Lisa Sanders has encountered all of the most common symptoms. And yet the fascinating case studies from her 'Diagnosis' column have nearly stumped even her. These stories begin in a familiar place--a sudden fever, a bout of nausea, a fit of exhaustion. But the symptoms don't follow a common medical script. In each of these cases, the path to diagnosis and treatment is winding, sometimes frustratingly unclear. Dr. Sanders shows how making the right diagnosis requires expertise, painstaking procedure, and sometimes a little luck."-- Provided by publisher.
