"The granddaddy of general internal medicine texts...Solidly written and effectively illustrated...and a comprehensive resource on diseases of adults." -- (JAMA, rev. of last ed.)

As the 21st Edition of "Cecil Textbook of Medicine" ushers in the 21st century, medicine has never been more exciting and challenging. Extraordinary advances in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, triggered by advances in molecular and cellular biology, are revolutionizing the scientific basis of medicine. One of the highest priorities of this edition is the incorporation of these molecular and cellular advances into a comprehensive yet easily understandable description of the modern pathophysiologic basis of disease. Simultaneously, medicine has seen equally revolutionary advances in the application of methodologies such as the randomized control trial, the measurement of quality-of-life, and an understanding of cost effectiveness as they apply to clinical medicine.

This new edition also emphasizes the application of this new information via the concept of evidence-based medicine to clinical decision-making. This dual emphasis -- molecular biology and evidence-based medicine -- permeates the entire fabric of this work. Increased use of flow diagrams to guide diagnostic and therapeutic decision making is a natural outgrowth of these advances.

This edition includes a new part on Women's Health, a new part on Eye, Nose and Throat Diseases, and a substantially expanded part on Critical Care Medicine. Thirty-five chapters are totally new and address important aspects of medicine.
