Pattern recognition is one of the stalwarts of clinical practice- a combination of book-learning and experience helps us all to know that the pot-bellied, panting, polyphagic, polydipsic dog is very likely to be Cushingoid. But when the situation is less clear-cut, or there are conflicting clinical findings, it is easy to lose confidence with your work up and decision making. In these situations, a problem-based approach becomes imperative. This series will explore some challenging medical cases using this problem-based approach. The cases examined are a range of endocrine, respiratory, GI, urogenital and beyond and look critically at clinical pathology, imaging and histopathology results in the quest to make diagnoses and plan treatments for these patients- this is a whistle-stop tour of advanced internal medicine! The objective of this series is to improve confidence and promote a logical approach when dealing with more challenging medical cases.

Topics to be covered include:

    • How to approach cases using problem-based techniques
    • Interpretation of diagnostic tests and imaging
    • Logical systematic approach for investigation of endocrine, respiratory, GI and urogenital cases
