Intended for use as a supplement in medical-school biochemistry courses, Clinical Studies in Medical Biochemistry uses a case-study format to relate the fundamentals of biochemistry to the practice of medicine. The thirty cases, carefully selected to cover common diseases and important principles, follow a consistent format: a case report, presenting the history, physical findings, and relevant laboratory data; diagnosis; a discussion of the biochemical perspectives; therapeutic options; questions and bibliography. The chapter authors have been selected for their significant contributions to the understanding of the diseases they write about.
