Annotation This casebook for students, clinicians, and related professionals presents a selection of real clinical vignettes which illustrate the concepts and terminology found in the DSM-IV-TR. These accounts have been edited to focus on information relevant to differential diagnosis. The cases are organized into sections on adults, children and adolescents, multiaxial assessment, international cases, and historical cases. They are also indexed by diagnosis and by special interest (i.e. in the medical setting). Each case is followed by a discussion of the DSM-IV-TR differential diagnosis. The editors are with the psychiatry department at Columbia University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
