Chapters 3–8 focus on the medical illnesses that patients with a given psychiatric disorder (e.g., schizophrenia) experience. Chapter 3, "Affective, Anxiety, and Somatoform Disorders and Dementia," is most helpful for consultation-liaison psychiatrists or for psychiatrists working with primary care physicians, since it talks mainly about rates of these disorders in medical populations. In addition, it explores the potential relationships between medical and psychiatric disorders: does one cause the other or do they have a common etiology? There are very practical tips for treating common problems for patients with dementia (e.g., urinary incontinence). Chapters 4 and 7 are outstanding in that they methodically outline common medical problems in patients with schizophrenia and those with eating disorders, respectively. For example, patients with schizophrenia have higher rates of ingestion of objects, self-mutilation, coronary artery disease, and cancer than the general population. These chapters quickly bring the practicing psychiatrist up to date. Chapter 5, "Munchausen’s Syndrome and Other Factitious Disorders," and chapter 6, "Self-Injurious Behavior," each includes a section on when to get a medical consultation—a section that would be good for all of the chapters. Chapter 8, "Alcohol and Drug Abuse," is well written but less critical, since most psychiatrists have exposure to this topic in practice and in continuing medical education.
