AM:STARs: Case Studies in Adolescent Health, Vol. 23, No. 2

Adolescent Medicine: State of the Art Reviews

By AAP Section on Adolescent Health
Edited by John Kulig, MD

Each case presentation in this issue has a lesson to teach. As with the previous volume, contributions were solicited by open invitation on the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine's listserv, and authors were instructed to submit concise case presentations with a discussion and a limited number of references. Many of the first authors are physician fellows in adolescent medicine. Cases are presented in alphabetical order by first author's last name. Medical, surgical, mental health and ethical challenges are addressed. Cases include common adolescent health problems with unusual presentations as well as unusual disorders ("zebras") rarely encountered in adolescence. Readers are invited to formulate a differential diagnosis based upon the case presentation before reading the discussion. We are confident that even our most experienced and senior clinicians in adolescent health care have not encountered the full range of conditions described in this volume.
