In this exciting new volume, the authors draw upon a rich collection of visual material to explore the full range of primary hyperlipidemias.
By referring to hundreds of high quality images included in this ground-breaking work, the physician using this book can identify and diagnose the whole spectrum of lipid disorders at the earliest possible stage. In addition, they illustrate how lipid disorders may disrupt other organ systems, sometimes without any symptoms being manifested, and present initially to specialists in fields as diverse as rheumatology, dermatology, orthopaedics or ophthalmology with a further risk of misdiagnosis. A comprehensively illustrated guide to diagnosis, this atlas will assist cardiologists, endocrinologists, primary care physicians and others healthcare professionals in their daily task of making an accurate assessment of the patient and then formulating the most effective management program for each manifestation of this highly complex group of disorders.
