DSM-IV-TR Case Studies is an ambitious attempt toprovide a clinically relevant guide to differential diagnosisof psychiatric illness. The book is organized into 16 chapters coinciding with major diagnostic categories of DSMIV-TR and a very useful, final “Test Yourself” chapter.The authors of the text faced a tough challenge: collecting and creating clinical vignettes that would reflect thediagnostic criteria in a comprehensive and accurate way,yet represent what clinicians may encounter in the “realworld.” Illustrations needed to be complex enough toshowcase the diversity of presentation of psychopathology,yet not mislead or obfuscate.
