This book aims to provide concise and pragmatic guidelines to clinicians managing patients with uncommon diseases at the bedside. After a brief introduction, the book is divided into nine chapters including several questions. Each chapter is related to either a specific organ (heart and vessels, lungs, nervous system, skin, kidneys, liver) or a type of affection (infections, internal medicine diseases). The authors received specific guidelines: short introduction focusing on epidemiology and pathophysiology, detailed description of the diagnostic approach, and practical
management recommendations. Illustrations and algorithms are requested in order to facilitate the understanding of the disease. A minimal number of references are needed, including an exhaustive review published in a major journal, if available.
