Summary Greenwood's "Inside Diseases and Disorders" series explores some of the key diseases and disorders, both physical and psychological, affecting the world today. Each book examines a condition holistically, covering topics such as signs and symptoms, causes and risk factors, diagnosis and management, and prevention. They also address broader issues of vital importance, including the effects on family and friends and medical and societal controversies related to the condition.
