Increasingly psychiatrists deal with complex diagnoses that necessitate sophisticated management. This completely revised second edition of Troublesome Disguises has been rewritten anew by a team of internationally recognized experts under the joint editorship of Professors Bhugra and Malhi. Each chapter of the book carefully examines common psychiatric conditions that pose a diagnostic dilemma and can be difficult to manage. The authors provide an up to date overview of these challenging psychiatric disorders with expert guidance presented in an engaging and easy to assimilate style. Along with diagnosis important areas of assessment, aetiology and treatment are detailed so that an awareness of these conditions and their management improves recognition and facilitates appropriate intervention leading to better outcomes.

For the clinician struggling to understand and treat patients who fail to fit the usual diagnostic categories, Troublesome Disguises provides invaluable instructions in the virtue of entertaining doubts, as well as practical advice for the assessment and management of atypical cases.
