Your positive reception has been an incredible encouragement, especially in light of the short life of the Case Files series. In this third edition of Case Files : Family Medicine , the basic format of the book has been retained. Improvements were made in updating many of the chapters. New cases include Substance Abuse, Asthma, Sleep Apnea, Osteoporosis, Chronic Pain Management, and Leg Swelling. We reviewed the clinical scenarios with the intent of improving them; however, their “real-life” presentations patterned after actual clinical experience were accurate and instructive. The multiple-choice questions have been carefully reviewed and rewritten to ensure that they comply with the National Board and USMLE format.
Through this third edition, we hope that the reader will continue to enj oy learning diagnosis and management through the simulated clinical cases. It certainly is a privilege to be teachers for so many students, and it is with humility that we present this edition. The curriculum that evolved into the ideas for this series was inspired by two talented and forthright students, Philbert Yau and Chuck Rosipal, who have since graduated from medical school. It has been a pleasure to work with Dr. Don Briscoe, a brilliant, compassionate, and dedicated teacher and leader, and Dr. Bruce Britton, who is an excellent teacher and communicator.
I am greatly indebted to my editor, Catherine Johnson, whose exuberance, experience, and vision helped to shape this series.
