Description

"The Deadly Dinner Party brings us fifteen medical detective stories written by the practicing physician and Harvard professor Jonathan Edlow. These real-life cases show the doctor as detective and the epidemiologist as elite sleuth." Dr. Edlow uses his unique ability to relate complex medical concepts to a lay audience in a readable style, giving us clear insight into how doctors think when presented with a difficult case. A notorious stomach bug turns a suburban dinner party into a disaster that almost claims its host; a diminutive woman routinely eats more than her football-playing boyfriend but continually loses weight; a young executive is diagnosed with lung cancer, yet the tumors seem to wax and wane inexplicably - and there are no easy solutions.
