The most trusted textbook in medicine -- featuring the acclaimed "Harrison's" DVD with 57 additional chapters and exclusive video and tutorials

"Now presented in TWO VOLUMES" As reviwed by JAMA:
"With the 18th edition, "Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine" retains its standing as a definitive clinical reference and remains an outstanding foundation for any physician or physician-in-training. In many regards, "Harrison's" remains synonymous not just with internal medicine but with medicine in general. The editors of the 18th edition have skillfully balanced tradition with the desire and need for innovation. The result is a book that remains as fundamental to current medical practice as the first edition was in 1949."

Editor Fauci includes van der Meer and Bleijenberg's egregiously inaccurate chapter on ME ("CFS"). It is no better than that in earlier editions by Fauci colleague Straus. The article paints ME as having proven psychological components and relatively unproven organic components. Nothing could be further from the truth. For example, they claim that "a direct microbial causation is unproven and unlikely." And that CBT and GET are the only proven treatments while acyclovir and many others have been proven ineffective. And so on. I give Harrison's one star because such misrepresentations by Drs. van der Meer and Bleijenberg have caused a tremendous amount of iatrogenic morbidity in ME patients. I am very eager to give Harrison's five-stars, because in most other respects, it really deserves it. I have learned a lot from it. Please substitute an accurate chapter on ME and I would be delighted to give it five-stars and evangelize for Harrison's. The essential documents on ME (with more than enough information to fill a chapter in Harrison's) are: - the 2003 Canadian ME/CFS Consensus Criteria [...] - the 2010 validated research version of the above CCC [...] - the 2011 International ME Criteria [...] Please contact me if you wish further information or if you wish to find an author who will draft an accurate chapter for you free of charge. Thank you.
