Abstract:

"An advisory board of physicians and librarians worked with health-care professionals and medical writers to compile this encyclopedia. The 1,500 alphabetical entries cover 905 disorders and conditions, 235 tests and procedures, and 325 treatments and therapies (including drugs and alternative treatments). The signed entries are one to three pages long and include shaded boxes with definitions of key terms, brief bibliographies, and lists of organizations for referral. Black-and-white photographs, line drawings, and charts augment the text. This encyclopedia bridges the gap between basic consumer sources and specialized medical texts."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000.
